Ne-Yo's 'Friend Like Me' music video is an Aladdin throwback

In the first track shared off the forthcoming We Love Disney compilation album, Ne-Yo performs the the Aladdin classic, “Friend Like Me,” and now the track has a music video, which features nods to the original film. Finger-snapping and slinking across the dance floor in a dapper tux and a bowler hat tipped low, he’s charming, cheeky, and totally irresistible. Also, the vocals are on point. 

The album, due out Oct. 30, also features spots from Jessie J singing “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, Kacey Musgraves taking on “Spoonful of Sugar” from Mary Poppins, Jason Derulo singing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” from The Lion King, and more. Full track listing is below.
