LET’S 👏 FREAKIN’ 👏 DO 👏 THIS! 👏 #BirdsOfPrey@DojaCat@Normani@theestallion @halsey@IAMSUMMERWALKER @Saweetie @LaurenJauregui @kflay@charlottelawr@maisiehpeters@WHIPPEDCREAM@babygothxx@GALXARA@cynthialovely @iamjuceefroot@sofitukker@ADONA_music@jurneesmollett pic.twitter.com/449ORKq1Dr— Birds of Prey (@birdsofpreywb) January 9, 2020
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).
"It was exciting, everything about it was so cool, like the costumes," Winstead explained in a previous interview.. "And [director] Cathy [Yan], really being at the helm of it, and really making these decisions that she thought were cool, as opposed to going ‘Well, we’ve got to appeal to this person, we’ve got to appeal to that person.’ It was really like she had the reins. And Margot was super involved in a collaborative way, but it was all just like ‘What do we think is cool?’ Not like ‘But are guys going to think this is sexy?’ We didn’t have any of those questions. It was just like ‘What do we think is cool?’”0comments
