Celine Dion Debuts “Ashes” from the ‘Deadpool 2’ Soundtrack
You did not misread that title; I repeat, you did not misread that title.
We thought Earth’s Mightiest Heroes would be getting all the attention this week due to Marvel giving us the biggest opening weekend ever, both domestically and worldwide, with Avengers: Infinity Wars, but Deadpool (specifically Ryan Reynold’s as Deadpool) is never to be outdone.
Deadpool 2 has given us 4th-Wall breaking treasures, fun one-liners including jabs at Reynolds’ wife Blake Lively, knocks on Fox, and a self-declaration that they have outdone themselves with this sequel. Now they’ve released the first song off the soundtrack and it’s not LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out.
No; it’s Celine Dion’s new single Ashes.
The video was released today with a Deadpool (assumingely not Reynolds) dancing on stage to Dion blaring a ballad for the ages. And yes, everything about this is real.
Celine Dion even tweeted her joy for the release:
Over the years I’ve received incredible songs and I’ve been involved in fun projects. Ashes is 1 of those songs and Deadpool Movie is off-the-charts!
Deadpool 2 has now officially outdone the first before the movie even has hit the big screen.
Check out the new music video below and of course Deadpool 2 in theaters May 18th.
