My favourites: Naomi Scott - Speechless (Aladdin)

Me and some friends recently saw Disney's new version of "Aladdin" at the cinema and I really liked it a lot. I found it hard to take my eyes off of the gorgeous Mena Massoud who plays Aladdin. Marwan Kenzari who plays Jafar is really good looking as well. But that's not what this post is about, so let's get serious:

I like that Disney has modernised the story and gotten rid of the Arabian stereotypes from the original. I also like that Jasmine, played by the talented Naomi Scott, is given more of a voice this time around. I totally love the song "Speechless" that she sings as a response to society's demands on her to be seen but not heard. The song is beautiful and empowering, sort of like "Let It Go" from "Frozen".

Check out the video down below and don't forget to support the song on iTunes, Spotify etc.
