To help promote Disney’s upcoming re-release of The Little Mermaid on Diamond Edition Blu-ray, pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen has just released her cover of the classic song, “Part of Your World”.
Surprisingly, this rendition isn’t at all cringe-worthy (as most of us expected). It’s sincere, heartfelt and remains true to the original. Sure, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and personally I think it sounds like she’s singing karaoke over the original instrumental arrangement, but whatever. The Alan Menken-Howard Ashman classic still holds up as one of the greatest moments of the Disney Renaissance, and Carly Rae Jepsen honors that.
Listen to the full song below:
Carly’s version of “Part of Your World” will be made available as a music video on the upcoming Blu-ray (out October 1), and will also be featured on the upcoming special edition album The Little Mermaid: Greatest Hits (available September 24)
