I never did get into the Sex and the City TV series, but I figured that I should check out the movies when they started hitting the theaters. I've seen a couple of episodes - enough to know about Carrie and Big and their tumultuous relationship - but not enough to say that I'm a fan.
I've told you before how One 2 One Network always hooks me up with music - whether I know about it or not. I wanted to check out the soundtrack for Sex and the City 2 once I saw the track listing. There's so many artists on this soundtrack that I LOVE - it's a no-brainer for me.
Luckily I was selected to review this soundtrack, and I am not disappointed in the least. One of my favorite singers of all time is on here and she blew me away as she always does...
Ms. Alicia Keys - that girl can SING!
Some info about the SATC2 soundtrack:
- The soundtrack features a brand-new duet "Love is Your Color" by Grammy and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, along with global superstar, multi-platinum recording artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee Leona Lewis.
- Soundtrack includes a new song by platinum-selling CeeLo and International superstar Dido also contributes an exclusive new track.
- Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, Tony and Academy Award® winner Liza Minnelli covers Beyonce’s chart-topper “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
- 12-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys performs her own extraordinary new version of the Blondie classic “Rapture”.
- The soundtrack also features the stars of Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, performing the Helen Reddy classic “I Am Woman.”
In addition to Alicia, I LOVE Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis! I was skeptical about Liza's rendition of "Single Ladies" because - let's face it - who can do it like Beyonce'? Just like most ladies can't hit notes like Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey, the same goes for Beyonce'! I did not like that track but I liked all of the songs on this soundtrack - including "I Am Woman" by none other than the ladies of SATC2!
