The official soundtrack for Queen & Slim has arrived just before the anticipated film is scheduled to hit theaters nationwide later this month. In partnership with Motown Records, tracklist features an all-star lineup of artists including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Megan Thee Stallion, Vince Staples, 6LACK, Syd, Lil Baby, Blood Orange and Burna Boy, among others. Hill’s moving song titled “Guarding The Gates” marks her first musical release in nearly six years.

A modern adaptation of Bonnie and Clyde, Queen & Slim is the directorial film debut of Melina Matsoukas (Insecure) and written by Emmy-award winner Lena Waithe. The thriller stars Academy Award-nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Jodie Turner-Smith as the titular characters who are on the run from the law after a traffic stop goes awry.

“I wanted the soundtrack for Queen & Slim to showcase the historical evolution of Black music, from its roots in blues and soul, to modern bounce, hip hop and R&B – much like we used to see in film soundtracks in the 90s,” stated Matsoukas to Variety.

Listen to the full soundtrack below and catch Queen & Slim in theaters Nov. 27.
