Bridgeport’s Arika Kane contributes theme to “Hollywood Exes”

When you tune into the season 2 premier of VH1’s “Hollywood Exes” on July 8, make sure to listen to the theme song — you’ll hear the voice of Arika Kane.

For the second season in a row, the Bridgeport songstress has contributed her song, “Make It,” to the VH1 reality smash about women who are moving on from their famous ex-husbands.

“It’s a song that tells about my story, and it’s uplifting and inspiring,” Kane said of the track. “The fact that a song that is so personal for me is going to be out there, being heard and connecting me to my audience . . . is something for which I’m very thankful.”

“Make It” is a song from Kane’s self-titled debut album (“Substance”, her sophomore LP, was released last year). Her songs also have been featured on the VH1 programs “What Chilli Wants,” “Basketball Wives” and “Single Ladies.”

“Hollywood Exes” stars Nicole Murphy, ex-wife of Eddie Murphy; Sheree Fletcher, ex-wife of Will Smith; Andrea Kelly, ex-wife of R. Kelly; Jessica Conseco, ex-wife of Jose Canseco; Mayte Garcia, ex-wife of Prince; and Shamicka Lawrence, ex-wife of Martin Lawrence.
