The previews for Quentin Tarantino’s slavery revenge blacksploitation western “Django Unchained” make the movie seem more enticing than its premise would have figured.  Now John Legend’s contribution to the soundtrack makes it that much more appealing.

Legend, the Grammy winning singer/songwriter contributed a brand new song “Who Did That to You” to the soundtrack. He says he was moved to write the song because its subject matter was so inspiring.

“Quentin Tarantino’s movies have such a specific sound to them where the music plays such an important role.,” Legend said in a release.  “When I first learned that Quentin was making Django Unchained, a film set in the South two years before the Civil War, I felt a strong connection to the story, and I knew that I wanted to write a song for it, one that would give voice to this character Django who was willing to stand up and fight for his lover’s honor. The scene where the song plays is such a powerful moment in the film, a moment of redemption, and we wrote a triumphant and heroic song that underscores Django’s mission.”

  1. Good job, cheers We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable information to work on. You have done an impressive job and our whole community will be thankful to you

  2. I think good movies about the Civil War & Post Civil war are important. I think we should be taking greater note of the Emancipation Proclamation 150 Anniversary 1/1/2013. But I really want to ask for help with my book “Baba Grace and The Necklace”. It is an excellent read and very informative.
    My book has been plagiarized by the billion dollar company American Girl Dolls. I wrote about 2 of my great-grandmothers who knew each other as girls in UPTOWN New Orleans in the 1800s. The heart of my first book of the trilogy is the search for ‘The Necklace’ … American Girl used the same premise, time setting and made one girl white. They used same names in my book and so much more. I have been trying to send a direct e-mail to Sybil … can I get some help … this company so big I need someone to help me in my challenge. Thank you …
