[artist id="2481017"]Jennifer Hudson[/artist] and [artist id="2490602"]Leona Lewis[/artist] offer some hope to the lovesick Carrie Bradshaws of the world with their new duet “Love Is Your Color,” which hit the Internet this week. The song is featured on the star-studded “Sex and the City 2″ soundtrack , out May 25.
In the first “SATC” flick, Hudson not only played Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant, she also recorded the song “All Dressed in Love” for the soundtrack. And though Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that the Oscar winner doesn’t have a cameo in the May 27 sequel, Hudson’s fans can still enjoy her and Lewis on the midtempo ballad.
“Love is your color/ It makes you shine,” the duo sing in the chorus. “Sometimes it’s hard to cope/ Long as you always know to show your color/ It comes from inside/ Everything else is black and white/ Love is your color.”
The soundtrack also features the cast of the flick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, performing the the Helen Reddy ode to female empowerment “I Am Woman,” as well as previously released songs including Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down” and Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat.”
The uplifting, empowering songs of the soundtrack seem to fit right in line with the “black-and-white road movie” feeling that Parker says is prevalent in “SATC 2.”
“We’re hoping that it’s fun and light,” she said, contrasting it to the melancholy first movie. “It feels like a soufflé. We’ve traveled a great distance to film it, and I think we have beautiful cinematic images and pictures, and I think everybody else is really good in it. I’m probably not, but I’ve enjoyed doing it.”
