Kali Uchis has a minion reasons to smile…
The 27-year-old Colombian American singer, real name Karly-Marina Loaiza, is set to appear on the Minions: The Rise of Gru film soundtrack.
Uchis, who rose to acclaim with her hit single Telepatia, performs the single “Desafinado” on the soundtrack, which is produced by Jack Antonoff. The original song was performed by Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto.
Meanwhile, Heitor Pereira also appears on the soundtrack…
The 61-year-old Brazilian composer, who played with Simply Red and several famous musicians, composed “Minions: The Rise of Gru Score Suite” for the film.
Other artists set to appear on the soundtrack include Diana Ross, Tame Impala, St. Vincent and Caroline Polachek.
“i’m very happy about this and have to get back to work now,” said Antonoff of the project.
