'Rio' Soundtrack: Brazilian Rhythms & Blue Sky

12 April 2011 2:30 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

We've been begging and pleading with our girlfriends to let us go to Rio de Janeiro, but something about the bounty of thongs and beaches has always thwarted our travel attempts. C'est la vie.

In lieu of a spontaneous vacation, though, the best we could get is the soundtrack to Blue Sky's "Rio," the upcoming animated film about a rare macaw (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) who travels to South America to find his female counterpart and revitalize his dying species. Man, even the birds think about sex down there.

As you'd expect, the soundtrack leans heavy on the Brazilian theme, melding updated versions of classic songs with new tracks by R&B and pop superstars.

Hollywoodnews.com: How is it possible the upcoming “Rio” soundtrack doesn’t feature Duran Duran singing their smash hit?

Well, there’s still plenty of talent on deck for the “Rio” record, which will arrive in stores April 5 on Fox Music/Interscope Records. Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas, Jamie Foxx, Bebel Gilberto, Taio Cruz, Ester Dean, Siedah Garrett, Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords), and Brazilian sensation Carlinhos Brown collaborate with film composer John Powell to juice up the song track for the anticipated animated hit.

From the release:

From the makers of the hit Ice Age series comes Rio, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda (Leslie Mann) in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. »
