Brandy, known as the first Black Cinderella, will forever be our favorite Disney princess. The R&B royal will continue her reign in the Disney empire with a new original song for the companyâ€™s 2021 Ultimate Princess Celebration.
The celebrationâ€™s theme song, â€œStarting Now,â€ was written by Jason Mater, Jordan Powers, and Darren Criss and produced by Warren â€œOakâ€ Felder.
Brandy described the song on social media, stating it â€œcelebrates courage and kindness.â€ Her new track will be released on May 21 with a lyric video.
An official music video will follow soon. It will be attached to this Augustâ€™s Disney Princess Remixed â€“ An Ultimate Princess Celebration, a half-hour music special debuting on the Disney Channel. The show will feature multi-talented stars from the network performing their renditions of iconic songs from Disney princesses and queens.
The celebration announcement comes months after Rodgers and Hammersteinâ€™s Cinderella, in which she starred, started streaming on Disney Plus.
Iâ€™m happy to announce the new Disney Princess Anthem â€œStarting Nowâ€ will be released on May 21st! I had an amazing time working with @Oakwud to record an original song that celebrates courage and kindness. Thank you @Disney for this moment â™¥ï¸âœ¨#UltimatePrincessCelebration pic.twitter.com/Zy7dbZFRGu
