If you think that you had enough of The Greatest Showman soundtrack, you are wrong!
A reimagination of the best selling soundtrack album of the year was released today by Atlantic Records. It is now available from your favorite music streaming services, and physical copies from your favorite record stores.
The original soundtrack reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart in its fourth week of release and dominating Spotify's U.S. viral chart with singles including "Never Enough" and "This Is Me," which are practically the flagship singles of the album.
Nielsen Music attested that the album had sold more copies than any album this year in the U.S. (1.3 million). It shattered multiple records across the Atlantic, where it's matched the U.K. chart runs of Adele's "21" and The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Our store alone sold a hundred or more copies of this album.
Now, it is getting a revamp with major stars interpreting its tracks; "The Greatest Showman: Reimagined," is now out, which contains 13 covers by popular acts including Kesha, Missy Elliott, Sara Bareilles, Zac Brown Band, Ty Dolla $ign and Panic! At the Disco.
The selection of artist picked in this album was partly based social media feedbacks, like Pink and Kelly Clarkson's online expression of adoration for the soundtrack of the movie and other viral connections made by artists to the film.
The recording company then asked them to pick their songs. A decision that is undoubtedly brilliant as if you hear Kelly's version of "Never Enough," I am sure that you will get goosebumps. I am not saying that it is better than the original but its definitely refreshing to hear those songs injected with the signature styles of these A-list stars.
Pink's 7-year-old daughter, Willow Sage Heart picked "A Million Dreams" with her singing the reprise. Pink said that her daughter had a blast recording the song and that it felt wonderful watching her daughter performs and follows her footstep.
Other notable artists who participated in this making of this album are Craig David, Years and Years, Jess Glynne, Max, Pentatonix, James Arthur and Anne Marie.
Check it out now on Tidal and Spotify, and soon from our store!
