Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the “Hitch” soundtrack is hitting stores with love songs from Omarion, John Legend, Kevin Lyttle and others.
On the 13-track set, due Tuesday, Omarion gets his Jackson 5 on with the up-tempo “Never Gonna Let You Go (She’s a Keepa)” (see “Omarion Adds Big Collaborator To Solo LP: Outkast’s Big Boi” ), while Legend covers the Stevie Wonder classic “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing” with a little production help from Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas (see “John Legend Serves Up Both The Ordinary And The Wonder-Ful” ).
The soundtrack, executive produced by “Hitch” star Will Smith, also features a couple of classic tracks by Heavy D & the Boyz; Earth, Wind & Fire; and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, among others.
Amerie’s infectious head-nodder “1 Thing,” produced by Rich Harrison (Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez), leads off the set and is currently a favorite of mixtape and mix-show DJs. The single’s Chris Robinson-directed clip is currently in the works.
Starring Smith, Kevin James and Eva Mendes, “Hitch” chronicles the romantic ups and downs that New York “date doctor”/ladies’ man Alex “Hitch” Hitchens (Smith) runs into when he meets his match in a gossip columnist (Mendes).
