Two days before [movie id=”414497″]”Sex and the City 2″[/movie] hits theaters on May 27, fans of the HBO franchise can pick up the movie’s soundtrack to get pumped up for the NYC foursome’s return.
As if having a number of A-list artists on the soundtrack weren’t enough to get fans dancing in their Manolos, it turns out that the stars of the flick — Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon — also appear on the soundtrack, performing the Helen Reddy female-empowerment tune “I Am Woman.”
Other songs on the album include a duet between [artist id=”2481017″]Jennifer Hudson[/artist] and [artist id=”2490602″]Leona Lewis[/artist] called “Love Is Your Color”; Hudson appeared in the first flick as Carrie’s assistant, but it’s not known whether she’ll return for the sequel. Additionally, [artist id=”503203″]Alicia Keys'[/artist] “Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down” will be on the soundtrack. The original Jay-Z version of the song appears in the “Sex and the City 2″ trailer . Keys will also have a third song on the soundtrack, a cover of the Blondie song “Rapture.”
[artist id=”872″]Eyrkah Badu’s[/artist] “Window Seat” will be on the album, as well as a new song from Dido, who worked with T-Pain and Cee-Lo on the song “Everything to Lose.” [artist id=”760620″]Liza Minnelli[/artist], who appears in the sequel, also has two songs on the soundtrack: a cover of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and a duet with Billy Stritch, “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye.”
Recently, the ladies of “SATC” spoke to MTV News about what fans can expect from the film. “This time around, Carrie has been married for a couple of years. She is about to publish her fourth book,” Parker said. “She is content. … She and her husband, John, have found a nice and modest apartment, and they are living their lives, and she is seeing her friends as much as time allows.”
