Ariana Grande is officially about to become a part of they Disney Princess universe. The songstress took to Instagram to sneakily let the world know that she is recording music for the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast and it's all just too magical.
Ari posted a selfie from the recording studio, where she simply put the wilted rose emoji as the caption, tagging singer John Legend and the official BATB movie account in the pic.
So what does this mean?! Well, we're taking it as confirmation that Ariana and John are working on the duet version of the song "Beauty and the Beast," which Mrs. Potts sings solo during the actual movie scene when Belle and the Beast are dancing in the grand ballroom together.
Ari and John's version will most likely play during the credits, like in Disney's classic animated version of the film when legendary singers Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson took on the duet. The official Disney Instagram account later confirmed the news about Ariana and John's version of the song that will be coming soon.
True as it can be. 🌹🎶✨ @ArianaGrande and @JohnLegend will perform "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track in the film's upcoming live-action adaptation. A photo posted by Disney (@disney) on Jan 11, 2017 at 6:10pm PST

This is seriously mega-exciting for Ariana, who has always made her love for Disney movies known. She's often singing tunes from these movies on her Snapchat and along with her big bro Frankie, these two often visit Disney World when they're home in Florida and even Disneyland in California. And let's just take a moment to appreciate the fan art that is already appearing inspired by this news.
How stunning?! Although Emma Watson is actually playing Belle in the film and has already proven she is beyond perfect for the role, it's still cool to see that Ariana's fans are just as pumped for this upcoming song.
There isn't any official word as to when the song will be released, but we'll, make sure to have some tissues ready since we already know Ariana and John's vocals together are going to be next-level. They're joining a rather exclusive club of singers who have taken on the big songs from Disney movies which always play during the end credits and are a highlight of the soundtracks: Demi Lovato, who sang "Let It Go" from Frozen, Alessia Cara who sang "How Far I'll Go" from Moana and Christina Aguilera, who sang "Reflection" from Mulan, are all part of this coveted list.
Welcome to the Disney fam, Ariana.
