This Dramatic New Deadpool 2 Song Will Tear Your Heart Apart

‘My Heart Will Go On’ is nothing to us now. Celine Dion has released her latest mega-hit single ‘Ashes’ and it is incredible. The power, the passion, the Deadpool in heels. You read that right. Dion has moved on from her definitive Titanic theme song to a new movie, Deadpool 2. And it is literally too good.

This combination is so so so wrong that it’s absolutely right. The music video for the new song debuted on Good Morning America today and it’s so bizarre we want to laugh. But it’s actually also so spectacular and so Celine. Dramatic clips from Deadpool 2 play in slow motion as Celine belts the resurrection song we have done nothing to deserve.

We haven’t even gotten to the epic and mind-blowing part yet. Deadpool takes to the stage in the 2nd verse to deliver an interpretive dance. Celine famously has some of the most talented dancers and aerialists in her show, and Deadpool swings for the rafters. He sails through the air with the strength and grace that only a Celine song can inspire, in five-inch heels no less. Those high kicks, those back bends. Just, wow.

Celine gives it her absolute all, as she always does. Even Wade Wilson himself acknowledges at the end that Dion is too incredible and they have to take it down a notch. There are no lower notches for Celine, though. If you hire the best, you’re going to get the best.

This is truly the most inspired cultural combination since the Lonely Island Boys recruited Michael Bolton for a video. I can’t even tell at this point if the actual movie will even be as good as the buildup, but this season of Deadpool has been a gift to us all. Bob Ross, Good Housekeeping, Hugh Jackman. There is nothing sacred to me that Deadpool has not debauched, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18.
