The upcoming blockbuster Suicide Squad has dropped the video for the soundtrack cut “Sucker for Pain,” featuring a Suicide Squad-like assortment of MCs – Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Logic – alongside rockers Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors.
The video sees all six artists involved performing their joint cut on various sets from the Suicide Squad film: Lil Wayne sits atop the Joker’s fiery throne, while Logic’s straitjacketed appearance is a nod to the film’s Harley Quinn. However, for fans of DC Comics and the collective of super villains, the video offers some unseen footage from the film ahead of its August 5th theatrical release.
The Suicide Squad soundtrack also touts unlikely collaborations between Skrillex and Rick Ross (“Purple Lamborghini”) and Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach with Action Bronson and Mark Ronson (“Standing in the Rain”). Other new tracks include Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens,” Kevin Gates’ “Know Better,” Grimes’ “Medieval Warfare” and Panic! at the Disco’s cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
