ROMEO MUST DIE
About The Soundtrack
Acclaimed Music Supervisor Barry Hankerson, head of Blackground Records, along with his son, Jomo
Hankerson, assembled a diverse assortment of talent to create the blistering music for "Romeo Must Die." Starting with
Aaliyah, an acclaimed performer in her own right and star of the film, Hankerson next enlisted Grammy Award-winning composer and celebrated bass player Stanley Clarke to collaborate on the music with dynamic producer and hip-hop artist
Timbaland, who also produced the soundtrack.
The resulting mix, with its deep grooves and heavyweight contributors, was a seamless fit with the high intensity action, as well as the mood, drama and spirituality, of "Romeo Must Die." "Timbaland, Aaliyah and everyone involved with the music have brought a wonderful, fresh feeling to this film," says producer Silver. "We wanted to do things that had never been done before with this picture and I think the soundtrack definitely reflects that aesthetic."
Scheduled for a March 21 release. Romeo Must Die: The Album features 15 brand new tracks by an all-star array of hip-hop and R&B talent. In addition to
Aaliyah, the soundtrack also features Destiny's Child, Ginuwine, Mack 10, Timbaland &
Magoo, BG from Ca$h Money, Joe and more.
Aaliyah contributes four tracks to the album, debuting three new songs, including the knockout track, "Try Again," which will be released as the album's first single, accompanied by a video clip by director Wayne
Isham. Aaliyah also contributes "Are You Feelin' Me'?," which features prominently in a key scene between Aaliyah and Jet Li, and "I Don't
Wanna." Her collaboration with hip-hop artist and co-star DMX, "Come Back In One Piece," provides the source for one of the film's funniest sequences involving Anthony Anderson's character. Maurice, grooving to the track in a music store listening area.
