The official album artwork and artist list for the Birds of Prey soundtrack have been unveiled.
Specific plot details for Birds of Prey are still being kept under wraps, although it’s been confirmed that the heroines will go up against Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask – the film’s primary antagonist, as well as Chris Messina’s Victor Zsasz. As its release nears, the marketing machine for the movie is slowly heating up with Warner Bros. rolling out fans’ latest look on the much-anticipated flick with a new trailer that gave the public a better understanding about what’s going on in its narrative. This followed with the debut of its official soundtrack which features a string of artists.
The listing confirms several speculated-about songs, including Doja Cat’s “Boss Bitch”, Megan Thee Stallion & Normani’s “Diamonds”, and Halsey’s “Experiment on Me”. A multitude of other female artists are also on the list, including Lauren Jauregui, Summer Walker, and Whipped Cream.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who plays Dinah Lance/Black Canary in the film, is also listed on the soundtrack with a cover of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”. It’s been hinted almost since day one that Birds of Prey‘s version of Canary would borrow from her DC You backstory as a rock star, and now we know that we can definitely expect her singing within the film itself.
Birds of Prey will follow an unlikely alliance between Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Black Canary, Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), as they join forces against one of Gotham’s most vicious crime lords, Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).
