‘Rapture’ is one of two songs by Alicia Keys featured on the ‘Sex and the City 2’ upcoming soundtrack, in stores May 25.
The other is ‘Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down’ from ‘The Element of Freedom.’
Originally sung by punk rock veterans Blondie, ‘Rapture’ was featured on her 1980 album ‘Autoamerican.’ Alicia’s cover still includes the new wave funk sound and rap interlude, but with new rap lyrics pertaining to the movie’s highlighted quartet.
And Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis offer some hope to the lovesick Carrie Bradshaws of the world with their new duet “Love Is Your Color.”
In the first “SATC” flick, Hudson not only played Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant but she also had the song “All Dressed in Love” on the soundtrack.
And though Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that the Oscar winner doesn’t have a cameo in the May 27 sequel, Hudson’s can enjoy her and Lewis on the midtempo ballad.
“Love is your color/ It makes you shine / 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.”
