Hear Ariana Grande and John Legend’s full recording of “Beauty and the Beast”

Ariana Grande and John Legend have recorded the title song from Disney’s Beauty and Beast for the new live-action adaption. The whole song was shared earlier today on YouTube (just the audio):

I think this is the ‘for radio’ end credits version because the version in the trailer has more orchestration to it.

This rendition of the classic song is produced by Grammy-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney’s president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. The history of collaboration between Leib and Fair in film music goes back to the highly-successful “Pretty Woman” soundtrack.

For reference, here’s the original Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson music video version for comparison:

Which do you like more, the original Celine Dion & Peabo Bryson version or this one with Ariana Grande & John Legend?

The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on March 10, 2017. Pre-order is available now on Amazon.
