 Jay Z contributing to Annie soundtrack

Jay-Z has long been attached to the upcoming theatrical adaption of Annie, serving as an executive producer alongside Will Smith. Now, EW.com reports that the rapper is also contributing to the soundtrack, which will feature a “full dose of modern music influences.”

The adaptation, directed by Will Gluck (Easy A), is set for a theatrical release in 2014. Smith’s daughter Willow was originally set to play Annie, but has since grown too old for the role.

As previously reported, Jay-Z is also contributing to the soundtrack for the upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Below, you can watch his video for “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)”, which samples the Annie theme.
