Music: Killer Remix to Ginuwine's 'Pony' left out of 'Magic Mike XXL'
With 'Magic Mike XXL' reeling a near third less at the worldwide box office than its predecessor, Channing Tatum and his team of strippers are far from a boner-fide hit (see what I did there?). Can a soundtrack make a whole film better? Probably not, but it can give us some new songs to add to our playlist.
Ginuwine's 'Pony' was used in both the first and second 'Magic Mike' films and became a spiritual theme song for the franchise. Rustie's remix spins 'Pony' on its head with a future-electronic vibe that will do your head in.
The remix itself is phenomenal, but if there is a sole reason why it couldn't be included in the soundtrack - the track doesn't fit in with the overall vibe of the movie or the other songs.
Nevertheless, you'd be crazy not to give this one a listen with your headphones at max volume.
