Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have opened their arms to welcome two new, high-profile women into the “Sex and the City” fold, director Michael Patrick King revealed to Entertainment Weekly, spilling details on the flick’s soundtrack — which includes songs by Fergie and Jennifer Hudson.
Hudson, of course, doubles as the film’s biggest new cast member as well, a lucky-in-life, unlucky-in-love assistant named Louise that Hudson told MTV News was “a young, sweet girl … in love with love.”
She’s the last one in, and will be given the honor of being the last one out, as King revealed her track, “All Dressed Up in Love,” will play over the film’s end credits. According to EW, the song was written by MC Jack Splash and Cee-Lo of Gnarls Barkley.
“She sings it like nobody’s business,” King told the mag of Hudson’s performance.
Fergie, meanwhile, recorded the film’s opening number, an entirely new song called “Labels & Love.”
According to King, the singer feared she’d be too busy with two new singles to record the tune. But when New Line (which is releasing “Sex”) showed her the film, she changed her mind.
Of the opening, King told the mag, “It’s an entirely new song with lyrics, but it has the ‘Sex and the City’ theme as the DNA — on steroids.”
Little is known about the plot of the film, although star Sarah Jessica Parker did hint to MTV News earlier this year that a large portion of it would concern a huge “loss.”
What kind of loss? Grab a Cosmo and rest your tired Jimmy Choo-clad feet — the long-anticipated “Sex and the City” movie is right around the corner. We’ll know all the girls’ secrets when the movie opens May 30.
