‘Slumdog Millionaire’ OST Revealed

25 11 2008

It’s one of the most buzzed-about films of the season, and a surefire Oscar contender. She’s an accomplished musician who made a commercial breakthrough with “Paper Planes,” one of the year’s biggest sleeper hits. Now, MTV has the exclusive scoop on the soundtrack that will bring M.I.A. and “Slumdog Millionaire” together for your listening enjoyment.

Renowned composer A.R. Rahman will release his critically beloved “Slumdog Millionaire” soundtrack online next week – and in stores next month – giving moviegoers the chance to take home his unique musical pastiche of what it feels like to grow up on the mean streets of Mumbai, India. In many early reviews of the recently opened Danny Boyle flick, critics (such as our own Kurt Loder) have praised the groundbreaking efforts of the music, which mixes the disparate worlds of Bollywood and hip-hop.

M.I.A.’s love for the Bollywood style had her recording inside A.R. Rahman’s studio in India, and she has referred to him as “the Indian Timbaland.” This new “Slumdog” soundtrack will make their collaboration “O…Saya” available for the first time, as well as a remix of her worldwide hit “Paper Planes.”

Other songs on the soundtrack include “Gangsta Blues” featuring hip-hop artist BlaaZe and “Jai Ho,” which closes out the film with a rousing sing-a-long that has reportedly caused some audiences to burst into applause. “The energy of the film takes you through a roller coaster,” Rahman, one of the world’s top 25 all-time selling recording artists, recently told Variety. “And that’s one of the main inspirations for the whole music.”

The “Slumdog Millionaire” soundtrack will be available online everywhere November 25th, and at finer record stores on December 23rd.
