Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has teamed up with rising American singer Zhavia Ward to cover the love theme from Aladdin.


'A Whole New World' is the lead single from the live-action remake, in cinemas at the end of May. The song was written by Alan Menken and Tim Rice for Disney's 1992 animated version of Aladdin.


It went on to win Best Original Song at the 65th Academy Awards.

In the film, the song was performed by Brad Kane as Aladdin and Lea Salonga as Princess Jasmine.


It was later released as a single, performed by R&B singers Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle.

Their version of 'A Whole New World' was a top 10 hit in Australia, New Zealand, the US and Canada. Bryson and Belle's version also won two Grammys in 1994 - Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.


A second single, a cover of the song 'Friend Like Me', performed by Will Smith as Genie, is expected later in the year.
