John Legend & Ariana Grande's "Beauty & The Beast" Music Video Is Here

Legend and Grande have just released the music video for their take on the song. Directed by Dave Meyers of Missy Elliot's "Work It" and Katy Perry's "Firework" fame, the video takes place, predictably, in the Beast's mysterious castle, where Grande is holding court in an explosion of red tulle intended to mimic a rose. Also: no ponytail.

Legend, meanwhile, is rocking an embroidered jacket while he adopts his signature pose of dutifully taking selfies with Chrissy Teigen tickling the ivories. Throughout the video he and Grande are both surrounded by background dancers in red dresses who are presumably meant to be rose petals, but end up looking like extras from Hulu's new take on The Handmaid's Tale. There's a plot twist we didn't see coming.

Soon enough, the subjects of the song — Watson's Belle and Dan Stevens' Beast — surface to take a turn on the dance floor while Mrs. Potts, Chip, Cogsworth, and crew look on. It's all very sparkly and dramatic and Disney. Luna Legend, no doubt, would approve.

Watch the video below.
