‘Let’s Move’ gets hip-hop soundtrack

Michelle Obama is reportedly bringing her “Let’s Move” campaign to a music player near you, releasing a hip-hop album to promote the healthy eating and fitness initiative.


While the first lady apparently won’t be belting out any tunes on “Songs for a Healthier America,” MTV reports a slew of big-name acts — including Run DMC, Jordin Sparks, Doug E. Fresh, E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren, and Ashanti — are slated to contribute songs to the project.

Some of the tracks on the album include songs such as: “You Are What You Eat,” “Veggie Luv,” “Hip Hop LEAN,” and “We Like Vegetables.”

Obama is teaming up with the Partnership for a Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health for the album, writes the music network. Ten music videos will also be produced to promote the music record and will be distributed to schools.

The album is poised to hit store shelves Sept. 30.
