The absolutely packed superhero film Suicide Squad is coming out this August, and in conjunction with its impending release, Atlantic and Warner Bros. have put together an equally as star-studded soundtrack for the film. Featuring appearances from the likes of Kevin Gates, Kehlani, Action Bronson, Skrillex, Rick Ross, Grimes, Eminem, and more, the soundtrack features a remarkably solid lineup complete with original songs recorded for the upcoming film alongside number of licensed tracks.
Today, one of the tracks from the soundtrack, which also releases on August 5, has surfaced online, and it’s got a lot going on. Credited to Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Imagine Dragons featuring Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors, “Sucker for Pain” really suits the tone of the film looks to be going for. With Imagine Dragons handling the hook, everyone else jumps on the track for some rapping atop the relaxed production.
The track takes on a villainous vibe aligning itself more with the Joker than the rest of the villains featured in the film, with many of the lyrics doubling down on the title of track with some borderline suicidal lines from Lil Wayne in particular.
Listen to the song below.
