This week , Twilight Lexicon 's Laura in Movies.com column , talks about the soundtrack and how fans are reacting to it...
Billboard announced on Friday that Bruno Mars would have a place on the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack, and then on Monday the entire track was revealed. The collection is filled with new faces and fan favorites, though there are still some notable omissions.
The first new track to be revealed was It Will Rain by soundtrack newcomer Bruno Mars.

Regardless, this marks the first time a song in Spanish has been used in a Twilight Sagasoundtrack. Maestro is mostly known to American fans for her work on Alias, but she is also a talented vocalist who has fantastic range and an earthy quality to her voice. She has sung at festivals around the world......
