Ne-Yo brings a touch of magic to the screen in the fanatical video or his cover of “Friend Like Me” from Disney’s Aladdin.
The R&B hitmaker channels the genie’s character, voiced by Robin Williams, as he dances around a mansion, making chairs fly around a room and creating puffs of smoke in his wake. We even see a few clips of animation from the original 1992 movie.
His remake of the jazzy tune will appear on Disney’s We Love Disney compilation, which also features covers from artists including Jhené Aiko, Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, Ariana Grande, and Jason Derulo.
Ne-Yo, who is expecting his third child with fiancée Crystal Renay, recently performed in front of President Obama at the China State Dinner at the White House.
