Barbie is set to be the cinematic event of the summer. Directed by Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird, Little Women), the film is set to take us to the Barbie world. While the film is set to feature a myriad of different Barbies, the main Barbie (i.e. the original pink-clad, blonde Barbie) is brought to life by Margot Robbie. She will go on the adventure of a lifetime alongside her boyfriend Ken (Ryan Gosling). The film's cast is full of A-list talent and released trailers have already gotten the world hyped for the film's release. Additionally, a new trailer will be released later on May 25.
Now, a pastel pink Barbie movie in 2023 would not be complete without a killer soundtrack. In fact, a film like this could live or die on its music. While some elements, like a Dua Lipa single, have been known for a while, we have now gotten our first look at an extended selection of the artists who will be contributing to the Barbie soundtrack.
"Barbie" Set To Have a Certified Banger Soundtrack
Rolling Stone got an exclusive look at the Barbie soundtrack and accompanying album, which is available on July 21. The album is loaded with talent, with more artists set to be announced over the coming months. However, we have already been treated to 18 artists. According to promotional images, the soundtrack will feature Ava Max, Charli XCX, Dominic Fike, Dua Lipa, FIFTY FIFTY, Gayle, HAIM, Ice Spice, Kali, Karol G, Khalid, Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, PinkPantheress, Ryan Gosling, Tame Impala, and The Kid LAROI. Dua Lipa's single for the film, "Dance The Night", will be released on May 25.
Furthermore, the lineup is absolute fire...with one exception. As many fans are asking, where is Aqua? The Danish pop group is essentially known for two songs, one of them being the iconic 90s hit, "Barbie Girl". Hopefully, they will be announced soon or serve as a fantastic Easter Egg come the film's release. However, "Barbie Girl" was sampled in Ava Max's 2017 hit "Not Your Barbie Girl". Regardless, what do you think about the artists announced so far? Are you excited for Barbie? Let us know in the comments.
