Earlier this summer, it was announced that Lena Waithe would be releasing her debut film with director Melina Matsoukas, Queen & Slim — a New Orleans-set film starring Daniel Kaluuya that's been described as a "black Bonnie & Clyde". Now that we're a few trailers into the promo build-up, details of the soundtrack are beginning to emerge.
Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) will provide the film's original score, while the soundtrack will include tracks from Lauryn Hill, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Vince Staples, The Internet and many more. One of those "many more" is Tiana Major9 who's appearing alongside EarthGang with their smokey, slow-burning collaboration "Collide".
Directed by LX and produced by Kareem Adeshina, the gorgeously cinematic video follows the trio through the desert as they sing a deeply soulful tale of being drawn to someone who may not be good for them, and being powerless to resist. Delivered with passion and just a hint of sadness, you can only imagine what the film will look like.
The soundtrack drops on November 15 before the film is released in cinemas on November 27.
