'Sex and the City 2' Soundtrack Includes 'Single Ladies' and 'Empire State of Mind'
Soundtrack listing for "Sex and the City 2" has been unveiled and the names of some cast members are mentioned among the list. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon who play the major characters will cover "I Am Woman" from Helen Reddy.
Beyonce Knowles' "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" also makes it into the record, but it will be performed by Liza Minnelli. The 64-year-old actress/singer is likely to be seen singing the song during Stanford Blatch and Anthony Marantino's gay wedding like it has been widely reported.
Additionally, two songs from Alicia Keys, which are "Rapture" and "Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down", will be heard during the course of the film. Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis also support the movie with their duet of "Love Is Your Color".
Erykah Badu's song "Window Seat", which music video recently sparked controversy because she filmed the nude scene without a permit from authorities, is also included in the soundtrack album. Moreover, the movie will use Dido's "Everything to Lose" in some particular moment.
Those songs, added with other ten singles, are featured in "Sex and the City 2" soundtrack record which will be made available for purchase in U.S. stores starting May 25, or two days before the film hits U.S. cinemas. The drama comedy itself will take place two years after the end of 2008 "Sex and the City" and see Carrie Bradshaw and her friends having a trip in Abu Dhabi.
