The soundtrack ‘Girl in Progress’ will be available on May 8th in stores and iTunes three days ahead of the premiere of the movie on May 11th - the same date for mother’s day celebration.
‘Girl in Progress’ is an emotional movie that tells the story of Grace (Eva Mendes), a single mother in the middle of a financial and emotional crisis who needs to deal with another tough reality: her awful relationship with teenager daughter Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez). Derbez gives a moving performance in the movie and proves to be a key character for Grace’s journey. Matthew Modine, Patricia Arquette and Raini Rodriguez join the stellar cast.
The first single for the soundtrack, “Así o Más,” features Mexican singer songwriter Espinoza Paz in a special duet with the young sensation María José. The video and the single were released a few weeks ago and has been a success on radio and video charts.
The video for “Así o Más” shows both singers have great chemistry on the screen and debuts new sound for Paz, known as ‘El Cantautor del Pueblo’ (people’s singer). Espinoza Paz also has a cameo on ‘Girl in Progress’ as the cousin of Derbe’z character.
