Zendaya Sings 'Neverland' Off-Broadway With Some Subwoofers

Because the world needs Finding Neverland (The Album), a “fusion of pop and Broadway” featuring musicians like Jennifer Lopez and Ellie Goulding performing songs from the hit Broadway musical, here is Slay Queen Zendaya on the title track—with a little help from Slay Queen Bryan Cranston!

Having never seen Finding Neverland it is unclear to ya gal if the set-up relates to the play, but Cranston appears to be some kind of magic man helping Zendaya fulfill her plethora of dreams, as embodied by the track. “Every wish is our command! When we find our Neverland!” And then it goes into a thumpy, sub-woofery dance song; if Hamilton can happen, why can’t trap-musicals? And, why can’t Bryan Cranston be a Peter Pan/Captain Hook hybrid? The magic of the theatah!

Good god. They are really trying to make Finding Neverland: The Musical a thing. Harvey Weinstein is a producer and he must be calling everyone he knows. The reviews weren’t kind and the show quickly fell out of the weekly ten top-grossing shows.
He had Rita Ora sing a song at his Academy Awards party last year. The show had a special featurette on Fox News. At the Tony Awards, they had Jennifer Hudson sing and perform in a production number from the show even though the show wasn’t going to open for months and Hudson has nothing to do with the show. Then there was a Project Runway episode where the designers watched a performance, said it was the best thing ever, and then had to make a garment inspired by the show.

And I bet anything that J. Lo will be performing her song from the album in some upcoming episode of American Idol.
