Legendary singers are surprising fans like crazy this week, first Christina Aguilera with “Accelerate” and now Celine Dion with “Ashes” from the upcoming Deadpool 2 soundtrack.

Some may wonder why the Canadian superstar chose to do a song for a superhero film, but the Deadpool franchise and its hero are known for referencing pop culture, something Celine entered into in 1997 with another soundtrack ballad “My Heart Will Go On” for Titanic.

In the video, Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds appears in heels to do an interpretive dance on stage. Then after Celine finishes her powerful performance he criticizes the singer for being too good, to which she delivers a devastating clap back. 

The video for “Ashes” is directed by David Leitch who is also behind the camera for Deadpool 2.

The soundtrack is scheduled to be released on May 18. The playlist includes some original songs, but also classics from Cher, Dolly Parton, and Pat Benatar.
