I can't say I pay any kind of attention to any of that Twilight, New Moon ish, but a Lupe Fiasco song for the latter film's soundtrack was worth a listen. Here's Lupe's latest, "Solar Midnight." Says Lupe of the song: "Solar Midnight is my first commercial release that I actually produced as well as wrote. The New Moon team asked me if I could do a song specifically for the film. They invited me to an early screening of the unfinished film from which I pulled different elements that I thought would translate into a great song. I pulled in vocalist and bassist Graham Burris and acclaimed musician Matt Nelson to help fill it out my vision musically and "voila" Solar Midnite was born. The song basically deals with the chaotic love story that takes place between the characters. It's more on the rock side of my musical catalog and comes straight from my die hard fanhood of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Anthony Keidis, one of my FAVORITE RAPPERS." I'm not so sure I'm feeling this one.
