Beyonce’s cover of Etta James’ “At Last” will lead the soundtrack for “Cadillac Records,” due Dec. 2 from Columbia, reports Billboard.com. Beyonce plays James in the film, which chronicles the rise and fall of iconic label Chess Records.


       The soundtrack will be available in both single- and double-disc editions, and also includes tracks from Mos Def (portraying Chuck Berry), Jeffrey Wright (as Muddy Waters), Columbus Short (as Little Walter) and Eamonn Walker (as Howlin’ Wolf).      

       Raphael Saadiq, Beyonce’s sister Solange, Mary Mary, Nas, Buddy Guy and Elvis Presley also contribute songs on the album. [Scroll down to view complete track list.]      

       “Cadillac Records” opens Dec. 5 in U.S. theaters. “People will be most surprised that the glamorous Beyonce allowed herself to be seen in the desperate straits that Etta went through, including her heroin addiction,” says Sony BMG Music Entertainment chairman Andrew Lack, who produced “Cadillac Records” with Sony BMG Films executive VP Sophia Sondervan. “That’s a Beyonce I don’t think anyone’s seen yet.”
