The Barbie Land is about to get lit with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, and Lizzo are ready to bring their A-game to the soundtrack of the highly anticipated Barbie film.

The trailer is set to Nicki Minaj’s chart-topping hit Super Freaky Girl that moved straight to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts last summer. You know Nicki always brings fire when it comes to spitting bars. Not only that, but Ice Spice is also teaming up with Taylor Swift to remix the fan-favorite record Karma, which is out today. The Grammy-winning musician announced her Midnights deluxe album yesterday and dubbed the rising Bronx rapper as “one to watch.” And Lizzo has been working hard on the second leg of her Special 2our, which concludes in July. She also recently made a guest appearance on The Simpsons. You know she's all about that good energy and her music will definitely bring some much-needed light into our lives.

We bet it’ll be a rollercoaster ride. The announcement was made in a social media post where Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey, Simu Liu, Micheal Cera, Issa Rae, and more will also star. Robbie teased her fans and left them in awe as she read the newspaper with the soundtrack credits of Nicki, Ice Spice, and Lizzo alongside contributions from Charli XCX, Dua Lipa, Kali, Khalid, PinkPantheress, Ryan Gosling, Tame Impala, and the Kid LAROI.
