Ariana Grande will headline a heavy-hitting lineup of A-list singers on We Love Disney, a new album focusing on famous artists’ covers of iconic Disney songs.
Grande is taking on “Zero to Hero” from the Hercules animated movie. Ariana will tackle a song originally arranged for five female voices.
If you not familiar with what song Ariana Grande is singing on the We Love Disney album, you can watch a video of the song below.
Ariana will be joined on this project by “Masterpiece” artist Jessie J. The two are no strangers as Grande and Jessie J performed the hit “Bang Bang” together last year. Hit-producing artists Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Ne-Yo and Gwen Stefani will team up with Ariana to record new versions of popular Disney songs.
Grande will also be joined by musicians who aren’t from the pop or R&B scene. Country musicians Kacey Musgraves and Rascal Flatts as well as blues singer Brenna Whitaker join Ariana on the album.
Ne-Yo’s version of the song “Friend Like Me” has already been released. The song can be heard in the video below.
