There is no doubt that Skrillex and Rick Ross' "Purple Lamborghini" is one of the musical highlights off the Suicide Squad soundtrack, but the pair found a way to make the song even better with it's visual accompaniment.

The Colin Tilley-directed blockbuster video opens up on a chilling shot of Jared Leto's Joker staring off into the distance with his signature look of crazy across his face. Before long, we cut to Rozay in the club, which is when Skrillex and the Joker stroll in, which is when things really start to turn up. The video manages to build tension centered around The Joker who is clearly plotting something. From there, the trio somehow end up on a yacht together at sunset with Leto showing off his masterful skills of the maniacal joker laugh.

The movie hit theaters today and the soundtrack, featuring thirteen original new songs, dropped along with it. We've already heard Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Logic's "Sucker for Pain,"Action Bronson, Mark Ronson, and Dan Auerbach's cut, "Standing in the Rain," and Kehlani's very personal "Gangsta" because they all premiered previously on Beats 1. Finally, we get to hear Kevin Gates' offering, "Know Better," which easily sounds like it could've been a track on his debut album, Islah. It's a pounding track that finds Gates drawing out words on the chorus for even more emphasis.

Unfortunately, the soundtrack's scheduled release hasn't totally gone as planned with Atlantic Records reportedly trying to track down the person who leaked a part of the film's soundtrack.
