Atlantic Records Announces BIRDS OF PREY: THE ALBUM
Atlantic Records is proud to announce BIRDS OF PREY: THE ALBUM, the star-studded, all-female musical companion to the eagerly awaited new film from Warner Bros. Pictures. The first official single from the groundbreaking soundtrack features an epic collaboration between Megan Thee Stallion and Normani. "Diamonds" makes history as the first song to interpolate and sample Marilyn Monroe's iconic "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend." The confident, alluring and commanding track is accompanied by an official video incorporating exclusive footage from Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) - watch below!
BIRDS OF PREY: THE ALBUM is now available for pre-order HERE and arrives in stores and at all online retailers on Friday, February 7th in conjunction with the theatrical release of the feature film.
BIRDS OF PREY: THE ALBUM will be celebrated with a massive rollout leading up to the soundtrack and film's arrival on February 7th including exclusive new singles and mind-blowing music videos from a tremendous array of powerhouse female artists, including Halsey ("Experiment On Me"), Doja Cat ("Boss Bitch"), Charlotte Lawrence ("Joke's On You"), and Saweetie & GALXARA ("Sway With Me"). The revolutionary album also features brand new tracks from Summer Walker, Lauren Jauregui and Black Canary, Jurnee Smollett-Bell's character in the film. See below for full tracklisting.

You ever hear THE ONE about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham's most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya's paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary; Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya; Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz; and Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis. Newcomer Ella Jay Basco also stars as Cassandra "Cass" Cain in her feature film debut.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, the film is based on characters from DC. Robbie also produced, alongside Bryan Unkeless and Sue Kroll. The film's executive producers are Walter Hamada, Galen Vaisman, Geoff Johns, Hans Ritter and David Ayer.
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a LuckyChap Entertainment Production, a Clubhouse Pictures Production, a Kroll & Co. Entertainment Production, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). The film is being distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
