Jay-Z has teamed up with writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann to create the soundtrack to the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby. He serves as the executive producer and has also contributed an original track titled “100$ Bill”. The soundtrack will feature contributions from Beyonce, Andre 3000, Will.I.Am. Fergie, Q-Tip, Lana Del Ray and more.

Also included is a trailer which previews Beyonce and Andre 3000′s Amy Winehouse cover “Back To Black“. The soundtrack hits store shelves May 7th and the movie is coming to a theater near you May 10th. Here is what Jay-Z had to say:

“The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence, and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to Moulin Rouge! made it a masterpiece, and Romeo + Juliet’s score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience.”
