Beauty and the Beast is a little over a month away from its release. And I can’t wait for it. Mainly because God knows that I need some happiness in life right now.
Have you seen the absolutely gorgeous trailer that was recently released?
Take a look if you haven’t. You’ve been depriving yourself.
Of course with a new film means we get a new soundtrack full of new versions of classic songs (and new songs as well!).
One of these new songs is a new cover of the classic “Beauty and the Beast”. The song was originally sung by Angela Lansbury in the film and covered by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. For the newest film, John Legend and Ariana Grande will be covering the song.
Today, the soundtrack has gone up for pre-order. As part of that pre-order, you can get the Legend and Grande cover of “Beauty and the Beast”.
Right now, it’s only audio only. Apparently, there will be a music video of this cover later.
So which cover version do you prefer? Legend and Grande? Or Dion and Bryson?
Even more exciting is that we have a song list!! (This is taken off the soundtracks iTunes listing.)

It looks like, based on this listing, we may actually see the circumstances that leave the Prince cursed into a Beast. It makes sense after all if the Prologue is split in two.
