Though we suspect she didnt have to go through an awfully long audition press to get the gig: her husband Jay-Z created the score for the movie as a whole.
'The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one's introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion, he has said about the project. 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 the Romeo + Juliet 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.'
The Great Gatsby is due to be released in the UK at very long last on 10 May.
