ZAYN and Becky G Release Spanish Version of ‘A Whole New World’

Multi-platinum and global award-winning superstar singer/songwriter ZAYN and global award-winning superstar singer/songwriter and actress Becky G perform the Oscar and GRAMMY-winning duet “A Whole New World” (“Un Mundo Ideal”), out today. The song will be featured in the film’s end credits in Spanish speaking Latin American markets and on the Walt Disney Records Latin Spanish language soundtrack.

The new updated rendition of the classic song is produced by Saltwives aka Alex Oriet and David Phelan, and the music video will be directed by Philip Andelman.

“As with his choice of Zhavia Ward to duet in English, ZAYN impresses again with his personal selection of global superstar Becky G to duet with him, singing her parts in Spanish,” said Mitchell Leib, president of Music & Soundtracks for the Walt Disney Studios.  “This stunning “Spanglish” version really expands the footprint of ZAYN’s modern interpretation of this all-time classic Disney song.”

The timeless ballad, featuring Alan Menken’s beautiful melody and Howard Ashman’s unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® Award and GRAMMY Award, among other accolades, upon its release in 1992.

The duet features ZAYN’s vocals in English and Becky G’s vocals in Spanish. “Un Mundo Ideal” is available now at streaming services.
