A Whole New World (Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle)
Disney obviously liked what Peabo Bryson had done with the theme song to their 1991 film Beauty and the Beast because they hired him again for this pop rendition of the theme from Aladdin. Here he’s paired with the silky-voiced Regina Belle. This was their second time singing together for a movie soundtrack – they recorded Without You for the Bill Cosby film Leonard Part 6.
But now from way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
Fun fact: This is the first, and only, song from a Disney animated film to hit #1 on the US Hot 100. It’s also both Bryson and Belle’s only #1 on that chart.
