Here’s a roundup of new music from Cash Money Records, City Girls, and more.
Lil Wayne, Birdman and Roddy Ricch made it a special Friday with the release of “STUNNAMAN,” the first single from the She Ball Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
The film, starring Nick Cannon, Chris Brown, Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, Faizon Love and Marla Gibbs, will premiere in the summer, when the soundtrack also will be released. Cannon, Brown and Birdman are serving as producers.
“We’ve got legends and all of the people who are really popping right now on the track-list,” says Cannon. “I saw Do the Right thing, Love and Basketball, and Above The Rim as a kid. We cherish those as national treasures now. That’s our goal.”
Birdman added, “I said to Nick, if we’re going to do this, we’ve got to do it as big as possible. As important as the movie was, the soundtrack was just as important. We were able to put together some powerful records and collaborations worthy of this film. It takes everything to the next level.”
Meanwhile, City Girls officially dropped their new single, “Twerkulator,” which became a hit on TikTok after it was leaked last year. It samples the 1982 classic “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force.
Also on Friday, Lil Baby and Kirk Franklin released “We Win,” the first single from the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack. The album will drop July 9. The film, starring LeBron James, Don Cheadle and Zendaya, opens July 16.
