If you’re, well, a person, then you probably know all the lyrics to Reflection; the song Christina Aguilera recorded for Mulan in 1998 at the age of 16. We’re happy to report that Xtina is returning to her Disney roots and has recorded a new song for the live-action remake.

Hi Fighters! I have two songs, Loyal Brave True, and a new reimagined version of Reflection on @Disney’s new live action film @Mulan, out March 27th! #Mulan and #Reflection have been such a special part of my life and this film is a beautiful continuation of this legacy. Go see the film in theaters March 27th…...and the #LoyalBraveTrue single is out now! Hope you love it as much as I do. Link’s in my bio.
Loyal Brave True is a ballad (as can be expected from the powerful vocalist) with a strong message, to tie into the theme of Mulan. In a statement, Christina gushed “It’s amazing to come back to such an incredible movie that’s full of power and meaning, and that meaning holds the test of time: staying true to yourself, being who you are and teaching how to be fearless.” Don’t you just love her?
The former Mickey Mouse Club member also revealed that she’s recorded an updated version of Reflection, so you may want to inform your colleagues, friends and dog that you’ll be belting it out for the foreseeable future. Fun fact: It was Reflection that landed Christina her record deal.
The live-action Mulan won’t have any musical numbers as it aims to stay true to the legend of Mulan rather than the original Disney film, although you can hear an instrumental version of Reflection in the trailer (that may or may not have had us welling up at our desk).
Listen to the song below:
