Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
The soundtrack to Disney’s resplendent live-action update of the animated classic gets a similarly opulent makeover with Ariana Grande, John Legend, Josh Groban, Céline Dion, Audra McDonald, and more. The album is filled with rousing sing-along moments perfect for the family trip (“Belle,” “Gaston,” and “Be Our Guest”) or when you need some alone time in the driveway (“How Does a Moment Last Forever” and “Evermore”).
Review of Beauty and the Beast Single Only
I must admit, I have been incredibly excited ever since this movie remake was initially announced, even more so when I found out that Emma Watson would be portraying Belle.
However, I must also admit that I was disappointed upon hearing that Ariana Grande and John Legend would be singing the iconic Beauty and the Beast duet. I am personally not a fan of Ariana Grande, but I decided to withhold judgment until the single was released. Upon hearing the song in the final movie trailer that aired earlier this week, I was hopeful. Their voices sounded beautiful and it seemed that they had surpassed my expectations.
Unfortunately, upon hearing the single, I am even more disappointed than I initially thought I would be. This is an epic BALLAD, which deserves authentic instruments as opposed to electronic keyboards and overly-produced, digital instruments. Frankly, this is not a pop song, and its disappointing that they treated it as such. Beauty and the Beast deserved better than this.
Celine Dion sings the original and you get Arianna Grande to sing the remake. I get it that she's current but talk about a big step down....
I was expecting a beautiful ballad for a beautiful Disney classic. The one from the trailer sounded so much better. Why didn't you release that one?
This track sounds like it came off of a karaoke machine. The original is so much better.
