Video: Ariana Grande & John Legend – Beauty and the Beast

Ariana Grande and John Legend bring their remake of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” to life in the gorgeous CGI music video directed by Dave Meyers.

Twenty-six years since the original, the singers were united to recreate the Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson 1991 version for the live-action film adaptation of Disney’s animated classic.

Staring out her castle window, Grande looks stunning in a flowing red gown as she belts out the iconic lyrics, “Tale as old as time / True as it can be / Barely even friends / Then somebody bends, unexpectedly.”

John makes his appearance at the grand piano as red cloaked dancers perform choreographed moves around Ari. Scenes from the new film are interspersed between their performance as they sing for Belle and the Beast, while large sparklers go off inside the lavish castle ballroom.

The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, which includes contributions from Dion, Alan Menken, and Tim Rice, will be released on March 10, while the film, starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Ewan McGregor, hits theaters on March 17.

Video: Stevie Wonder feat. Ariana Grande – Faith

Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande join forces to spread some “Faith” in the music video for their Golden Globe-nominated collaboration from the Sing soundtrack.

Channeling ’70s style, a blonde Ari struts her stuff down a city block wearing bellbottom overalls, mirrored shades, and colorful bracelets. The incomparable Mr. Wonder stays seated at a piano in a dimly lit theater delivering a rousing performance, as he does best, before Ariana joins him for a finale that includes Sing’s animated characters.

Gail Harrison, Illumination’s President of Marketing and Branding, said the video is meant to showcase both artists in the spirit of Sing, which is in theaters now.

“With this video for ‘Faith,’ the legendary Stevie Wonder’s incomparable music and timeless lyrics celebrate Sing‘s message of spreading joy and inspiring transformation,” said Harrison. “There are few performers who embody inspiration the way Stevie does, and he and Ariana join Sing‘s characters in a collective celebration of the power of song.”

Collaborating with the legendary Wonder was a career highlight for Ariana, who gushed over the collaboration. “I’m done now,” she said in September. “I’m good now…That’s it for me. Not only did I get to sing with him, but we were in the same booth…me and Stevie Wonder arm-in-arm, holding hands in the booth, singing together, laughing, having a good time.”

“Faith” is up for a Golden Globe in the Best Original Song – Motion Picture category. Watch the video below.

Following the legendary singer, Grande delivers some stunning vocals of her own. “See the boy with the Stevie Wonder swag?” she sings. “Ain’t got a clue all the magic that he has / He’s a go-getter, he’s everybody’s type / I’ma make it my mission, make him feel alright / He’s a twelve on a ten point, rockin’ out to his joint / Just say the word ’cause I can sing all night.”

During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Ariana gushed about collaborating with her idol. “I’m done now,” she said. “I’m good now…That’s it for me.
