In November, Atlantic Records released an unprecedented all-star companion album - "THE GREATEST SHOWMAN - REIMAGINED" - which sees songs from the film covered by a remarkable cast of artists. The album immediately ascended into the #1 position on iTunes "Top Albums" chart, with a staggering 90,000 units sold in the first week alone and global streams now approaching 500 million. The album had already amassed an incredible 100m streams via individual tracks and videos unveiled prior to the album's official release. Among those were "Rewrite the Stars" featuring multi-platinum artists Anne-Marie and James Arthur, Panic! At the Disco's rework of "The Greatest Show" and multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Kelly Clarkson's stunning take on "Never Enough." "THE GREATEST SHOWMAN - REIMAGINED" also came accompanied by P!nk's chart-topping version of "A Million Dreams" and the "A Million Dreams (Reprise)" performed by her daughter Willow Sage Hart. P!nk's version of "A Million Dreams" also proved to be a smash - reaching #2 on the iTunes overall "Top Songs" chart.
Atlantic Records unveiled the inspiring companion visual for "This Is Me (The Reimagined Remix)," performed by Keala Settle, Kesha, and the legendary Missy Elliott. The moving video stars Antoni, Tan, Bobby, and Jonathan from Netflix's Queer Eye alongside three extraordinary high school students (watch here).
