Summit Entertainment Celebrates Summer With Music From "Step Up Revolution"
Jennifer Lopez featuring Flo Rida to appear on film soundtrack with new single "Goin' In"
Summit Entertainment's upcoming summer release STEP UP REVOLUTION will highlight Jennifer Lopez's hotly anticipated new track, "Goin' In" featuring Flo Rida with additional vocals by Lil Jon and production by GoonRock on the film soundtrack. The single will be available in the U.S. through iTunes on June 12, 2012 with the soundtrack dropping on July 10, 2012. "Goin' In" is scheduled for release today, June 11, 2012 in most international territories. Lopez debuted the single on the May 23rd season finale of Fox's AMERICAN IDOL.
"Jennifer Lopez and Flo Rida are two of the leading artists in the music industry today," said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President of Production Erik Feig, who is also the film's producer. "Jennifer's foundation in dance paired with her impeccable ear for hot dance beats perfectly capture the style and spirit of STEP UP REVOLUTION while having Flo Rida back to contribute to this soundtrack after his successes on the previous installments of the franchise is a winning combination."
STEP UP REVOLUTION is the newest installment of the worldwide hit STEP UP franchise, which sets its dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called "The Mob." When a wealthy businessman threatens to develop The Mob's historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.
Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company, will release the motion picture nationwide on July 27, 2012.
