Rick Ross and Skrillex drop new 'Suicide Squad' collaboration 'Purple Lamborghini'
Rick Ross and Skrillex debuted “Purple Lamborghini,” their bombastic new song from the Suicide Squad soundtrack, on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show Thursday. In a brief interview with Lowe, Ross and Skrillex hinted that a “cinematic” music video for the song currently in production will feature a cameo from the Joker, played by Jared Leto in the new DC movie.
Suicide Squad: The Album features other notable collaborations, including “Standing in the Rain” (Action Bronson, Dan Auerbach, Mark Ronson) and “Sucker For Pain” (Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, X Ambassadors). The soundtrack also contains contributions from Kehlani, Kevin Gates, Eminem, Grimes, and Panic! at the Disco. “Purple Lamborghini” is the third song to be released from the project, after “Sucker For Pain” and Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens” were shared last month.
Like the movie itself, Suicide Squad: The Album drops on Aug. 5. “Purple Lamborghini” wasn’t the only Suicide Squad-related material to emerge Thursday — Warner Bros. also shared a new trailer for the film.
