As the upcoming Emma Watson- starrer Beauty and the Beast gears up for release, its latest soundtrack has already taken social media by storm.

Sung by none other than Ariana Grande and John Legend, the song - also titled Beauty and the Beast - is a near perfect rendition of Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson's classic. The original even won an Academy Award, a Grammy and a Golden Globe at the time of its release.

Emma Watson pretended to be 'boring'

"Stepping into the shoes of an Oscar and Grammy Award-winning classic is not small potatoes," producer Ron Fair said, in a statement. "But with today's two greatest singers — John Legend and Ariana Grande — we are bringing the song back, with a new school/old school fresh treatment that shows the soulfulness and power of what a great melody and lyric can inspire."
