New Music: Kehlani - 'Gangsta'

  /  08.01.2016

Kehlani is looking for a “Gangsta” on her single off the upcoming Suicide Squad soundtrack.

“I need a gangsta,” sings the Oakland songstress. “To love me better than all the others do / To always forgive me, ride or die with me, that’s just what gangstas do.”

Apparently, the song isn’t just a soundtrack record. It will also play a significant role in the DC Comics film, according to director David Ayer.

“Steven Price did the score on this and he’s incredibly gifted,” Ayer said on Beats 1. “He heard [‘Gangsta’] and felt he could do more with it and really orchestrate it and it just blends into the fabric of the film. It speaks a lot to relationships, making a choice, and at the same time how there’s also power in surrendering to somebody.”

Last month, Kehlani released a pair of singles, “CRZY” and “Distraction.” Plus, she also joined Belly to shoot a video for their collaboration “You.”

“Gangsta” is just the latest single off the Suicide Squad soundtrack. The star-studded compilation also includes “Sucker for Pain” by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, X Ambassadors, and Imagine Dragons, among other bangers. SS hits theaters Friday (Aug. 5), the same day the full soundtrack arrives.
