13. “Descendants Score Suite” (David Lawrence)

12. “If Only-Reprise (Dove Cameron)
The performance of a reprise version of the initial if only performance by Dove Cameron appears shortly in the movie again. This time it is done by Mal, who sings it while she is preparing an anti-love potion to give to Ben. Jealousy is what led her to act like that because she doesn’t want anything to distract him when the villains begin to take over Auradon. As she continues to prepare the love portion, she discovers that she has fallen deeply in love with Mal, and she breaks into tears. According to Descendants Wiki, this was the shortest soundtrack that was performed in this series up to date. The song is very emotional and one of the saddest that can make you cry.
