Beyonce's "Listen" is one of four all-new tracks on "Dreamgirls" soundtrack.
Yes she's one of the "Dreamgirls", but that's not all. Besides acting in the Bill Condon-directed film adaptation of the Broadway show of the same name Beyonce Knowles also will have her track "Listen", taken from her latest solo album "B'Day", featured as one of the four new songs written for the movie and not featured in the original musical.
"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., a member of the Underdogs production duo who spent six months producing the soundtrack. "That's gonna be a big, big record", he continued.
The "Dreamgirls" soundtrack, slated for a December release, features a number of records cut by some other artists, including that of "Love You I Do," a solo tune from former "American Idol" finalist Jennifer Hudson, who stars in the movie, due in theaters December 25 later this year, as the group's ousted lead vocalist, Effie White.
