Lucy Hale’s ‘Let It Go’ Duet With Rascal Flatts Will Give You ‘Frozen’ Chillsby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
Were you a big Frozen fan, but couldn’t bear to hear Princess Elsa belt the overplayed “Let It Go” single one more time? Well, what if somebody gave the ballad a country makeover?
The song, a declaration of independence delivered by the movie’s young, cursed heroine, has brand new life thanks to Lucy Hale and Rascal Flatts. The collaboration is part of the forthcoming We Love Disney collection, which also features Jessie J’s reinterpretation of “Part of Your World.” Hale, who’s country album Road Between was released in 2014, found the experience to be nothing short of a dream come true.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would say, ‘Yeah, I got to sing with Rascal Flatts,'” the Pretty Little Liars star said of the tune, which premiered on On Air With Ryan Seacrest last night (October 22). “But it actually happened, and I can cross that off my bucket list. Super amazing—still can’t really believe it. It’s still kind of sinking in.”
“Let It Go,” which was originally released in 2013 with a film rendition recorded by Idina Menzel and a pop radio supplement cut by Demi Lovato, is a twangy, breezy departure from the original. While the first was dramatic and featured sweeping builds, it’s relaxed into something that will keep your adrenal glands at bay—still powerful, but without the alarm.
