British singer Jessie J is the latest star to lend her voice to We Love Disney. Following Ne-Yo, Charles Perry, and Breanna Whitaker, she gives The Little Mermaid’s “Part Of Your World” a new spin and EW has an exclusive premiere of the track below. The song’s whimsical flairs remain intact, but what stands out is its uniquely feminine self-awareness. The “Bang Bang” singer’s pipes are on full display, with her power and control highlighting the best nuances of Ariel’s famous tune.
Introducing the track, the singer said she chose the Little Mermaidclassic because she’s loved it ever since she was a little girl. She adds, “I always wanted to to be able to sing it, combing my hair with a fork.” While there’s no fork in sight, there is a killer take on the nostalgia-inducing track.
We Love Disney arrives Oct. 30 and also includes contributions byNe-Yo (Aladdin’s “Friend Like Me”), Kacey Musgraves (Mary Poppins‘ “Spoonful of Sugar”), Fall Out Boy (The Jungle Book’s “I Wan’na Be Like You [The Monkey Song]”), and Rascal Flatts & Lucy Hale (Frozen’s “Let It Go”).
