The Rock Proves He Really Can Do Anything In First Singing Clip From ‘Moana’
From kicking ass as Agent Hobbs to creating laughs with Kevin Hart to signing high-profile NFL players on HBO’s “Ballers,” it’s clear there isn’t anything Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t do.
I know you know this, but it’s important to point out The Rock’s expansive skill set because now we’re getting a look at a side of the 44-year-old few even knew existed.
The Rock is set to make his animated film debut in Disney’s “Moana,” which hits theaters on November 23, and you need to stop what you’re doing right now and listen to his first singing clip from the movie.
The song The Rock is singing in this clip, “You’re Welcome,” was scored by “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, so you know it’ll be an awesome jam even before you hear The Rock do it justice with his pipes.
In the movie, The Rock plays Maui, a demigod who helps Moana along her journey throughout the film.
I mean, if you have a plane named after your character, you probably have to be an awesome singer, too, right?
I’ve already listened to “You’re Welcome” more times than I care to admit and I have to say, it’s one of the catchiest tunes I’ve heard in quite a while.
This 51-second clip may not be enough for you, though, which is why you should follow up your repeated views of the “You’re Welcome” clip by watching this clip of The Rock’s character first interacting with the movie’s main character, Moana.

Actually, since we’re sitting here watching The Rock sing and interact with Moana, you might as well take a few minutes and watch the full trailer for Disney’s next big hit.
Sure, this video already has over 10 million views, but maybe you haven’t seen it yet. In any case, enjoy!
