Earlier this week, the final trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast teased the film's revitalized title theme song, which was recorded by the somewhat unlikely duo of Ariana Grande and John Legend. Today, fans have finally been gifted with the full-length version of their duet. 

The sweet serenade sees Grande ease up on her high-ranging powerhouse vocals, and her more stripped-down delivery better suits Legend's warm tone. Their harmonies are what really stand out, though, proving why they were the right pairing for the part after all.

The original "Beauty," included in the 1991 animated movie, was performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. It won two Grammys, a Golden Globe, and Best Original Song at the Oscars.

Listen to Grande and Legend's version below.
