The latest step of the “Great Gatsby” marketing campaign seems to be to release trailers that feature the various awesome songs on the movie’s soundtrack, and we’re totally okay with that. We already got one featuring Beyonce and Florence + the Machine, and now a new teaser has been released featuring Fergie.
The trailer comes courtesy of NewNowNext, which awarded Fergie the Always Next Forever Now award at its recent awards show. The hip beat of the song featured here goes along with director Baz Luhrmann’s frenetic filmmaking style, and we love the irony in the line “a little party never killed nobody.”
In fact, the track itself is called “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got),” and it features Fergie, Q Tip and GoonRock. Fergie’s Black Eyed Peas cohort will.i.am also has a song on the soundtrack (“Bang Bang”), as do Lana Del Rey, Jay-Z, Jack White and Gotye.
“The Great Gatsby” stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Isa Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Jason Clarke. It’s due in theaters on May 10.
