Remember the era of blockbuster movie soundtracks that were defined by incredibly crowded (but always interesting) big name collabs? The forthcoming Suicide Squad, starring Margot Robbie and a full-method Jared Leto, seems to remember that era fondly. The soundtrack standout, “Sucker for Pain,” led by Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa, was released Thursday, and it certainly tests the limits of how many cooks should be in the kitchen at any given time.
Thankfully, the kitchen produced something quite worthy of the Squad co-sign. Ty Dolla $ign, Logic, X Ambassadors, and Imagine Dragons also drop by for some PG-13 notes of their own on “Sucker for Pain.” Frustrated with the track’s lack of visuals? Don’t sweat it. The official music video for the song is expected to premiere Thursday night on the Suicide Squad Facebook page, so you won’t have to wait very long to check it out.
“Sucker for Pain” is just one of the many top-shelf tracks set for the Suicide Squad soundtrack, which drops alongside the movie next month. The official, Squad-assisted video for Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens” was released earlier this week and, damn, this all has an admittedly dope Batman Forever and/or Batman & Robin soundtrack vibe to it, yeah?
Suicide Squad, which also stars Will Smith and Cara Delevingne, promises to make you wish for an R-rated sequel when it hits theaters Aug. 5. In fact, director David Ayer has already stepped up to the challenge by suggesting he’s willing to fight for exactly that.
