Seems like "What Is Love" is the song that will serve as the single off the soundtrack, maybe this will experience a close success to Frozens...

Here is also a teaser of Bruno Mars' song "Welcome Back":

Her old school, Michael Jacksonesque dance moves are something to be admired. She's a true star.
