Indian singer-songwriter Leslee Lewis says he’s happy to have performed a song for the new Hollywood film Trap City. Entitled Entourage, the song is produced by hip-hop artist The ATG, and is Lewis’ collaboration with rapper Omar Gooding.
“As an Indian artist, I feel lucky and proud to lend my voice for a Hollywood song because it is a rare opportunity. In Hollywood movies there are hardly any songs because in the West the style of storytelling is different, and the music in a movie is a story of background music. But the track “Entourage” is a very unique collaboration in which Omar Gooding, a well-known rapper, wrote the lyrics, and in the song, he raps while I sing. It’s my first Hollywood song and I’m very happy, ”Lewis told IANS.
ATG added, “When producing this record, I was definitely looking to create a party club record, which we could use in the present day. Although this song has a more traditional sound than most of my work, I still wanted to maintain my usual high production value. Despite my initial goal of simply creating a safe record, I found that I naturally relied on several genres of music to create a rather eclectic dance tune.
The song was released recently on various music streaming platforms. The film stars Brandon T. Jackson, Clifton Powell, Keith Middlebrook and Tamil actor-singer GV Prakash Kumar, and tells the story of a struggling rapper who works for a drug leader and records a song that goes viral a few hours before his arrest.
