It's raining men and cheesy music all over the "Magic Mike" soundtrack. A number of classics made the cut, and so did star Matthew McConaughey, who will be putting his shirtless stamp all over a track called "Ladies of Tampa."
Other songs on the soundtrack include a cover of the Weather Girls classic "It's Raining Men," by Countre Black, as well as the Foreigner classic "Feels Like the First Time." The soundtrack will drop on June 26, , just in time for the film, which opens June 29.
Noticeably absent from the track list is Ginuwine's "Pony," which star Channing Tatum said he dances to in the flick. "I dance to a pretty sexy hip-hop song, 'Pony,' " . "It's been one of my all-time favorite songs to grind to, so hopefully it's going to be [good]. And everyone did their own dancing. There is not a bit of substitution, everyone was game to take it off and get crazy."
"Magic Mike" follows Tatum, the title character, as he takes a newbie stripper (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing. In addition to catching those two dance around shirtless, audiences will see McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello playing strippers in the Steven Soderbergh-directed film. Tatum will join MTV News during MTV Sneak Peek Week on Thursday, May 31, to chat about the release. It will all go down at the 5 Towers on Universal CityWalk the week of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
