When the Disney live-action version of Aladdin hits theaters this summer, it will bring back all the favorite songs from the animated feature film. However, there will be two brand-new songs, and one just surfaced online.
The song is by Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the snippet of the track was leaked through a singing Jasmine doll by Jakks Toys. It was uploaded to Instagram, but you will need to turn up the volume on your computer to hear it.

The song is titled "Speechless" and is one of the two new songs that appear in the movie. According to Scott in a USA Today interview, the song is about Jasmine "finding her voice" and discovering the courage to speak for her people.
“I mean, how timely is that? (Jasmine’s) not perfect. She doesn’t get it right all the time," Scott explained. "It’s just showcasing that she gets to a point where, ‘It’s not going to be easy and I may lose this fight, but I need to step up.'”
"Speechless" is one of two new songs in the new Aladdin movie. The second new song will be a duet between Jasmine and Aladdin, and there will also be a new verse added to the song "Arabian Nights." Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land) composed the new songs for the movie.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin stars Mena Massoud, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Will Smith as the Genie, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as The Sultan, Alan Tudyk as Iago, Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders and Numan Acar as Hakim. The film arrives in theaters May 24.
