    MTV.com and DREAMGIRLS Soundtrack

    MTV.com has a new article on the DREAMGIRLS soundtrack and its first single release. "Listen" will be the first single released from the sountrack. Read below:


    A few months after the release of her second solo album on September 5 (the day after her 25th birthday), Beyoncé will return to music stores as the centerpiece of the soundtrack to the Bill Condon-directed film adaptation of the Broadway show "Dreamgirls," due in theaters December 25. The soundtrack's first single, in fact, will be a Beyoncé track called "Listen" that is one of four new songs written for the movie and not featured in the original musical (several online retailers also say the song will be one of three unlisted bonus tracks on B'Day).

    The Underdogs descibed the song as:

    "It's a ballad, it's got a big orchestra, so it's totally different for her and for the radio and MTV and everybody — it's gonna be exciting," said Harvey Mason Jr. of production duo the Underdogs (Omarion, Mario, JoJo), who spent six months producing the soundtrack. "That's gonna be a big, big record."The album's track list is still being finalized, but Mason said the Underdogs recorded more than 50 songs for the movie. "It's got most of the stuff from the Broadway play, and we reinterpreted some of that," Mason said. "And then some small pieces of new stuff in between. We saw a screening of it last week and it's going to be an amazing movie."

    This is all great news. We will hear "Listen" way before it officially drops since it will be a bonus track on Beyonce's album. Also the Underdogs recorded 50 songs! Wow. I know they won't all make the cut but I would love to hear them. To read the full MTV.com article, which goes on to talk about the rest of the stars on the soundtrack click HERE.

    It's been a while since I've seen a movie that I would pay to see more than once. Dreamgirls was wonderful. I plan to see the movie again and I play the soundtrack constantly. All the actors did a great job and I hope this movie opens a lot of doors for Ms. Hudson. Anyone that sleeps on this girl's talent is a fool.

    I know that black movies represent all facets of our lives, but it was wonderful to see a movie that reflected the rich pool of talent that we have. A movie without expletives, nudity or drug abuse or guns... a movie I could carry my children to see.
