Disney fans are sounding off on Ariana Grande and John Legend's cover of "Beauty and the Beast," and they seem split on final result.
Grande and Legend teamed up for their pop version of the song, which was released in full on Friday morning. Emma Thompson -- who voices Mrs. Potts -- will sing the song in the film.
About the collaboration, film producer Ron Fair said: "Stepping into the shoes of an Oscar and Grammy Award winning classic is not small potatoes. But with today's two greatest singers, John Legend and Ariana Grande, we are bringing the song back with a new school/old school fresh treatment that shows the soulfulness and power of what a great melody and lyric can inspire."
The film will be released on March 17, but the title track is already the talk of the Internet now. Check out the reactions from its critics and its fans:

Whoever produced the Ariana Grande/John Legend "Beauty and the Beast" made it sound like karaoke background music.— Erin Audrey Chiu ☁️ (@e_rinaudreychiu) February 3, 2017
