I only listened to a couple tracks off of the soundtrack but so far what I’ve heard, it is absolutely beautiful! I am saving the rest until after I see the movie. The renditions of the familiar classic songs such as “Belle“, “Be Our Guest“, and “Gaston” are great. Emma Watson has a gorgeous voice, she is the perfect fit as Belle. I must say I love the Overture which is the opening track. Alan Menken is a Disney God! Another song I like is a new original “How Does a Moment Last Forever” by Celine Dion. There’s no words to describe it but simply beautiful. I am very excited to listen to the rest of the album.. I am a huge lover of movie music, especially scores! Watch my tweets when I do tweet about the rest of the soundtrack.

If you are huge lover of the music to the original Beauty and the Beast, I’m sure that this soundtrack will not disappoint! Now I’m REALLY ready for the movie now!

Also, if you haven’t seen Ariana Grande and John Legend’s music video for “Beauty and the Beast” which premiered on Freeform earlier this week, watch it down below. I think it is an absolute gorgeous modern rendition. The music video is visually stunning and we also get a glimpse of what the classic ballroom scene will look like.

What are your thoughts on the soundtrack and/or music video?

NEW VIDEO: “We Don’t Talk Anymore” – Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez

Charlie Puth just released the official live video for “We Don’t Talk Anymore”, his latest single featuring Selena Gomez. This took place on one of the dates on Selena Gomez’ Revival tour.

This is my all time FAVORITE song off of Charlie Puth’s album Nine Track Mind. This song is so beautiful and has a nice groove to it. I honestly think it’s one of the best duets this year. From the start, I have been wishing and hoping it would become a single and I’m so happy it is! Hopefully there will be a music video to follow very soon..

You can download Nine Track Mind on iTunes or stream it on Spotify!
