As promised, Justin Timberlake has released new music from the soundtrack of his upcoming animated film, Trolls World Tour.
The song, “The Other Side,” is a collaboration with SZA and was co-written by Justin, SZA, Max Martin and others. An accompanying video shows the two dancing in a variety of silvery rooms, while SZA rocks a number of different outfits, including a sparkly bodysuit. Justin, however, sticks to basic black. In a throwback to ’90s hip-hop clips, much of the video is shot using a fish-eye lens.
The entire Trolls World Tour soundtrack, coming March 13, was executive-produced by Justin, and features original tunes and covers of well-known songs, such as Heart‘s “Barracuda,” The Scorpions‘ “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and Daft Punk‘s “One More Time.” The movie arrives April 17.
In addition to Justin and SZA, artists featured on the soundtrack — and in most cases, in the film as well — include Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, R&B star Anderson .Paak, funk legends George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, country star Dierks [derks] Bentley, sister group HAIM and many more.
The movie’s stars — Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Kenan Thompson, Sam Rockwell and Rachel Bloom — also sing on the soundtrack.
“Creating something that serves the movie while still being able to exist apart from it has been a fun challenge that was made even more exciting by working with the other amazing artists that helped us put this together,” Justin says in a statement.
