New tunes from Snoop Dogg, Eric Benét and Dave Hollister highlight the upcoming soundtrack to "The Brothers," a comedy featuring Bill Bellamy and D.L. Hughley, according to Warner Bros. Records.
Snoop's "Hi 2 U" is a smooth, typically explicit Dogg-style come-on, while Benét's slowly simmering "Love Don't Love Me" finds the singer in funkier territory than on his 1999 release, A Day in the Life. Ex-Blackstreet member Hollister's "Forever" is a lush love song, with strings and a gospel-style choir backing the singer's rich vocals.
Lil' Mo, who appears on Ja Rule's "Put It on Me" as well as on tracks by Jay-Z and Memphis Bleek, lends vocals to Jermaine Dupri and R.O.C.'s "Lay It Down," and Next's R.L. delivers the ballad "Good Love."
Maze featuring Frankie Beverly contribute "Teach Each Other," a percolating funk workout, and the father-and-son duo of Eddie Levert Sr. and Gerald Levert offer "Two of a Kind," a tender song about forgiveness between parent and child. Jazz pianist Marcus Miller provides the instrumental "The Love Theme."
The soundtrack is due on March 20, while the movie, a romantic comedy, hits theaters on March 23.
