Open Road Films is set to release ‘Fifty Shades of Black’ on over 2000 screens a week after the soundtrack’s debut, on January 29. The album, which is being released by IM Global Music, was curated by top music supervisors Format Entertainment and IM Global Music. The 10-track record will be available for download on iTunes and Amazon, and can currently be pre-ordered on the latter internet-based retailer.
‘Fifty Shades of Black’ parodies the book and film adaptation of the romantic drama, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ Wayans, who co-wrote the script for the comedy with Rick Alvarez, stars in the film’s title role of Mr. Black. The actor previously collaborated with the scribe, who also served as a producer on the comedy, on the 2013 parody, ‘A Haunted House’ and its 2014 sequel. Michael Tiddes, who directed ‘Fifty Shades of Black,’ also previously collaborated with Wayans and Alvarez on the ‘A Haunted House’ series. Besides Wayans, the upcoming comedy also stars Kali Hawk, Mike Epps, Andrew Bachelor, Affion Crockett, Jane Seymour, Fred Willard and Florence Henderson.
The ‘Fifty Shades of Black’ soundtrack listing includes the following hip-hop and R&B songs:
1. Skrilla Jones ft. Icy Black – ‘Shake It Like A Doggie (Mayeda Remix)’
2. Mr Chris Classic – ‘Swaggaback’
3. Love Kelli – ‘Unraveled’
4. Love Kelli – ‘So Good’
5. Leo Soul ft. West Wes – ‘Strip Down’
6. Leo Soul – ‘Under Your Spell’
7. Jordyn Kane – ‘Alive’
8. Gorgeous George – ‘Shake It Up’
9. Chief Wakil – ‘B.A.M.’
10. Jim Dooley – ‘End Credit Suite’
“I’m excited about this soundtrack. (It) goes great with the movie, and I find myself bopping my head to the beats while laughing,” Wayans said of the record.
President of IM Global Music David Schulhof added, “We’re very excited to be releasing the official ‘Fifty Shades of Black’ soundtrack album. It was great collaborating with Marlon, and this project was particularly fun to work on. We’re looking forward to sharing the soundtrack with fans of the movie, and also music fans who appreciate great music from independent artists.”
