Anyone who grew up in the early 2000s and loved Disney will remember the DisneyMania series of albums. The albums featured the day’s biggest recording artists (S Club! Aaron Carter! Hilary Duff! Raven!) singing Disney songs of yore. The albums were so successful that no less than seven editions were released (not counting remix versions and a Princess Edition) over the decade.
It now looks like Disney is attempting to resurrect the dormant series under a brand new (less goofy) title: We Love Disney. The album, recently announced at the 2015 D23 Expo, will feature a roster of A-list stars performing their own rendition of such classics as “A Whole New World,” “Colors of the Wind,” and “Let It Go.” The expansive list of stars includes current top-selling artists such as Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly, Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, and Jason Derulo, among many others.
The album’s full track listing is as follows:
1. “Friend Like Me” (From Aladdin) – Ne-Yo
2. “Part of Your World” (From The Little Mermaid) – Jessie J
3. “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” / Nants’ Ingonyama” (From The Lion King) – Jason Derulo
4. “The Rainbow Connection” (From The Muppet Movie) – Gwen Stefani
5. “Zero to Hero” (From Hercules) – Ariana Grande
6. “In a World of My Own” / “Very Good Advice” (From Alice in Wonderland) – Jhené Aiko
7. “I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)” (From The Jungle Book) – Fall Out Boy
8. “Colors of the Wind” (From Pocahontas) – Tori Kelly
9. “Spoonful of Sugar” (From Mary Poppins) – Kacey Musgraves
10. “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat” (From The Aristocats) – Charles Perry
11. “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” (From Cinderella) – Jessie Ware
12. “Let It Go” (From Frozen) – Rascal Flatts & Lucy Hale
13. “It’s a Small World” – We Love Disney Artists
14. “It’s Not Easy Being Green” (From The Muppet Show) – Brenna Whitaker
15. “A Whole New World” (From Aladdin) – Yuna
Walt Disney Records has also provided us with a preview of the album, featuring the first track “Friend Like Me” performed by Ne-Yo. It’s a fantastic contemporary take on a song we all know and love. Check it out below!
