[Review] Celine Dion- Ashes

Post by: Diva Devotee

I thought I could get back in the crypt after my Christina Aguilera review. Turns out one of our most iconic Divas, Celine Dion, has other plans for me, having also chosen today to release new music.

Taken oddly from the Deadpool sequel, Ashes is unsurprisingly another ballad from Canada's second biggest import. Now, a ballad for an action film isn't all that surprising, they were all the rage in the 90s'. But for Deadpool, I'm looking for the irony or joke in getting Celine to record the zany (anti)hero's flagship song. The only thing that connects the track itself to the source material is the ashes/beauty line and the fourth-wall breaking video- which is pretty funny in all fairness.

It's no My Heart Will go On, and nor should it be. Instead Ashes is a modern ballad that goes easy on the vocals and the schmaltz. Its nice variant on the traditionally bombastic, big voiced ballad we've come to expect from Celine. And I'm okay with that since it works wonderful.

Get into it below.
