Though it received far less enthusiasm from fans and critics than the series or the original film, the 2010 film Sex and the City 2 -- the second spinoff movie from the popular HBO series -- was a big box office success, grossing nearly $300 million worldwide. Because of the popularity of the series, many artists wanted to be included on the soundtrack of the film.

The clothes, the romance, the globe-shopping adventure: Sex and the City 2 has it all, as Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her friends (Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis) continue the story that began in their hit HBO series, making their mark not just in Manhattan, but everywhere.

But Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte only expect the best -- which is why even the soundtrack for their film has to be perfect.

Released by Water Tower Music digitally and in a 2-CD set on May 25, 2010 (two days before the release of the film), the Sex and the City 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, highlights some of the most exciting artists of our time, including a team-up between Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis, Alicia Keys, Dido, and Cee-Lo as well as others. With 17 tracks, the Sex and the City 2 soundtrack even gives the film's female foursome -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- a turn in the spotlight, singing Helen Reddy's classic hit: "I Am Woman."

Standout tracks include Alicia Keys' cover of the Blondie classic "Rapture" and Liza Minnelli's cover of Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." It also includes a mix of new material, older songs (Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors") and covers of classic standards (Shayna Steele, Jordan Ballard, Kamilah Marshall's “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”).

Sex and the City 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack peaked at #13 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and #2 on the U.S. Billboard Soundtrack Chart. It also reached #2 on the Australian Albums Chart, #2 on the Irish Top 30 Compilation Chart, #7 on the UK Compilation Chart, and #15 on the Italian Compilation Chart.
