The song is a grand, upbeat musical number that serves as Ali's introduction to the people of Agrabah, as he parades through the city with his retinue of servants, animals, and exotic goods. "Prince Ali" is known for its catchy melody, lively rhythm, and clever lyrics that poke fun at Ali's grandiose claims and over-the-top persona. The song has since become one of the most popular and memorable moments in the film, and has been covered and parodied in numerous other media.
