A timeless Disney classic has been recreated by ZAYN along with up and coming artists, Zhavia. The music video for a fresh rendition of “A Whole New World” was released Thursday (May 9.) The song has been recreated for the new upcoming live-action film for Aladdin. Staying true to the original song, ZAYN and Zhavia duet on the track but adds a personal touch that gives the song “a whole new” dreamy twist.
Brad Kane and Lea Salonga originally performed the iconic duet for the 1992 animated movie, that features on the motion picture soundtrack. The song also remains to be the first and only Disney song to be awarded a Grammy for Song of the Year.
The new live action film, Aladdin, is directed by Guy Ritche and stars Will Smith as Genie, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine’s friend Dalia, and Billy Magnussen in the new role of Prince Anders.
ZAYN and Zhavia’s version of the song will appear during the end credits of the new Aladdin edition, opening in theaters May 24.
Below you can find both the original and new version of the song.
