Think Think Like a Man Too is going to be the hottest comedy of the year and thanks to Mary J Blige lending her voice and art for story telling it’s going to have the hottest soundtrack too! I absolutely loved the original Think Like a Man and it’s star-studded cast and Mary J Blige teaming up to do the music for the entire album makes my heart skip beats. Nobody can tell a soulful story like Mary J Blige!
Mary J. Blige recorded an entire collection of music from and inspired by the film. The first single “Suitcase” showcases her signature sound, while her remake of Shalamar’s hit “A Night to Remember” is an instant classic, and is inspired by key scenes in both the film and trailer. Influenced by the backdrop to the film, “Vegas Nights” featuring The-Dream will be included as the end credits to the film while “Moments of Love” showcases the songstress’ powerful and passionate vocals.
In addition to being a music buff I am a movie buff as well. It appears that Epic Records is taking a cue from the good old Curtis Mayfield soundtrack days. In the 1970’s musicians would take totally ownership of music for movies. My favorite blaxploitation film is Claudine and Curtis Mayfield use Gladys Knight and the Pips to tell the story musically. It’s a great way to keep the music true to the film. Remember back in the day one artist would channel all of the music for a film soundtrack; Mary is doing just that for the album.
The album follows up the 2012 soundtrack for Think Like a Man, which debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Soundtrack Albums Chart and hit #5 on the R&B Albums Chart, as well as yielding John Legend’s Grammy Award-nominated, RIAA Gold-certified single “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)” [featuring Ludacris]. Meanwhile, Think Like a Man Too opens in theaters Friday June 20 from Screen Gems.
This also continues a great partnership between Epic Records and the film franchise. The original Think Like a Man soundtrack spawned over 1.4 million combined single sales between “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)”, Jennifer Hudson & Ne-Yo’s “Think Like A Man” [featuring Rick Ross] and Luther Vandross’ “Never Too Much” in addition to each topping the radio charts.
In the highly anticipated sequel, which was inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling bookAct Like a Lady, Think Like A Man, all the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. But plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.
