Ariana Grande, Jhené Aiko, & Ne-Yo Recreate Disney Classics for 'We Love Disney'
Some of your favorite artists are getting down with Disney. As part of the We Love Disney compilation, today’s superstars from the worlds of pop, rock, R&B, and country have recorded their own unique interpretations of classic Disney songs, which they chose themselves.
Ariana Grande performs “Zero to Hero” from Hercules, Jhené Aiko takes on Alice in Wonderland, and Jason Derulo covers Elton John’s classic “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King.
Produced by the Grammy Award-winning David Foster, the 15-track deluxe edition also includes contributions from Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, Tori Kelly, Fall Out Boy, and Ne-Yo, who covers Robin Williams’ “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin.
“The Disney franchise is something that brings out the kid in all of us,” said Foster. “No matter how old you are, 3 or 103, when you hear the word ‘Disney’ you light up from within. And there isn’t a person on the planet who doesn’t have a favorite Disney song. We tapped into that passion with all of the artists on the album.”
Verve Records and Walt Disney Records will release We Are Disney on Oct. 30.
