Can we just take a moment to appreciate how good the reworked version of A Whole New World is?!
Former One Direction member Zayn and The Four’s Zhavia Ward fabulously revamps Disney’s classic theme song from Aladdin and turns the old favourite into their own. I must admit, upon hearing Zayn and Zhavia‘s names linked to the project, I initially thought that the song may not hold-up to its original versions. I mean we’re talking about Peabo Bryson, Regina Belle and Lea Salonga here.
Oh boy, the feels! I fell in love with this new version from the moment I heard the Middle-Eastern tinged intro. Zayn‘s vocals are on-point and like you’ve never heard it before, while Zhavia holds her own and adds some interesting flavours and textures. Actually scratching my head right now wondering how this is not an instant hit. #download
A whole new world / A hundred thousand things to see (Hold your breath, it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star / I’ve come so far / I can’t go back to where I used to be
