Ryan Reynolds has recruited fellow Canadian Celine Dion to contribute for the soundtrack of one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Deadpool 2.
The Power Of Two Canadians
On May 3, Wednesday, the official YouTube channel of the Grammy Award-winning singer posted the music video for a song titled "Ashes." The video started out normal, with Dion standing onstage in a floor-length gown and the spotlight pointed on her.
Things started getting weird when the camera panned to Deadpool who was sitting on some equipment and emoting backstage.
Shortly after, the Marvel comic book superhero joined the 50-year-old singer onstage. Wearing hills, Deadpool strut onstage and performed an interpretative dance. Dion managed to keep a straight face throughout the video, but that was not exactly what the masked vigilante wanted from her.
"Celine," Deadpool called from the audience, "that was amazing. That was the most beautiful performance I've ever seen in my life ... We need to do it again. It's too good. This is Deadpool 2, not Titanic. You're like an 11, we need to get you down to five, five-and-a-half tops."
Dion responded with a sharp, "Listen, this thing only goes 11. So beat it, Spider-Man."
The music video has already crossed 3 million views within 24 hours of its posting.
Despite their onstage banter, Dion promoted the new song on her official Twitter page. She also encouraged her fans to go watch the movie when it comes out on May 18.

Tyler Bates Talks 'Deadpool 2' Score
Meanwhile, Tyler Bates, who also previously worked on Guardians of the Galaxy and John Wick, has spoken about his work on the upcoming superhero sequel. In an interview with Billboard, the renowned film composer called the opportunity to work on the R-rated movie "a badge of honor."
He also revealed that his favorite work on the movie was the track titled "You Can't Stop This Mother F*****," an orchestral number that features a choir singing "You can't stop him / He's a juggernaut / You can't stop this mother f*****."
Other songs included in the motion picture score are "X-Men Arrive," "Holy S*** Balls," "Make The Whole World Our B***."
