    The Underdogs

    There is an article on billboard.com about The Underdogs duo who produced the DREAMGIRLS soundtrack. Here's an excerpt:

    "During the five years since the partnership took off with Tyrese's "I Like Them Girls" and subsequent R&B and pop hits with Ruben Studdard, Omarion and others, the Underdogs were offered work on various soundtracks. But the timing and desire didn't click until the pair was asked to lend its production talents to "Dreamgirls.""We knew we wanted to do films," says Thomas, nicknamed "the motivator" by Mason. Before the Underdogs, Thomas wrote songs with Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds for Pink and Faith Evans, among others. "But we wanted to wait for a great opportunity."

    The Underdogs' first soundtrack venture was an ambitious undertaking. During a 14-month span, the duo worked on more than 40 songs and musical snippets for the DreamWorks/Paramount film."
