- Artist: Jordin Sparks
- Track: I Wish We'd All Been Ready
- Album: Left Behind: The Movie Soundtrack
I don't know about y'all, but I'm already sold on the upcoming movie adaptation of Left Behind. How can you not love a film that features Nicolas Cage action-heroing (and overacting) his way through the Biblical apocalypse? Even if the insane premise isn't enough to draw you in, you may find your interest piqued by the theme song, which comes courtesy of R&B songstress Jordin Sparks. I Wish We'd All Been Ready is surprisingly sweet for a jam describing the end of days. Over an uncredited beatsmith's lush, piano-driven production, the RCA Records signee gently breaks the news to the unraptured: “There's no time to change your mind, the son has come and you've been left behind.” Left Behind: The Movie Soundtrack is available now from record stores and online retailers, and the film (which features Jordin Sparks as an actress) is set to hit theaters this Friday, October 3.
