Zayn and Becky G Give 'Aladdin' Theme Latin Makeover on 'Un Mundo Ideal': Listen
A week after Zayn and Zhavia Ward soared to new heights with their take on the theme from Aladdin (May 24) for the upcoming live-action remake, Z is back with a bilingual version featuring Becky G. Cued to the same lush, hopeful arrangement by Saltwives, the second take on "A Whole New World," this time titled "Un Mundo Ideal," finds the G weaving her Spanish-language verse into Zayn's English ones, with their warm tones complimenting each other.
Becky excitedly announced the collab earlier this week, writing, "I'm so honored and excited to share that I am singing the Spanish version of "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin with @zayn! This is truly a dream come true and I can't wait for you guys to hear this beautiful song."

Will Smith appears as the Genie in the reboot, which was directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Mena Massoud as Aladdin.
