Last week, we got Kacey Musgraves’ “Spoonful of Sugar” and Jessie Ware’s “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from the upcoming We Love Disney covers compilation, and now Jason Derulo’s taken on a two-song medley from The Lion King. Tackling “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Nants’ Ingonyama” (as premiered by Noisey), the 26-year-old puts his heart and soul into every second of the all-or-nothing ballad.

“I felt like it was the song that touched me the most out of all Disney movies, out of all Disney songs that I’ve experienced,” Derulo said of the cover. “When that song plays within the Lion King, it just makes you feel something. It brings you to tears. Even watching that movie as a grown-up, I mean I feel like that song just brings something out of you. At any age. You know, you can go to see the Lion King on Broadway, and that song just makes you feel something instantly.”
