Ms. Lauryn Hill and JAY-Z Headline Star-Studded ‘The Harder They Fall’ Soundtrack

The soundtrack for The Harder They Fall features an anthemic Ms. Lauryn Hill and Fatoumata Diawara collaboration and a pair of new songs from JAY-Z.

A week out from hitting Netflix, the musical accompaniment to The Harder They Fall has landed. And it features a commensurately star-powered cast.

Headlined by an anthemic collaboration between Ms. Lauryn Hill and Fatoumata Diawara, the soundtrack also includes the full version of JAY-Z and Kid Cudi‘s new song, “Guns Go Bang,” which was teased in a recent trailer for the film. Hov, who serves as an executive producer on the film, pops up later in the sequence as well, exchanging bars with Conway The Machine and Jadakiss on “King Kong Riddim.” Elsewhere on the soundtrack, there’s a boomingly soulful new cut from Seal, a spacious country-soul ballad from Alice Smith, a slow-burner from Barrington Levy, and plenty more to warm up for the film’s streaming debut.

Out next Friday, The Harder They Fall charts a blood feud between Idris Elba‘s Rufus Buck and Jonathan Majors’ Nat Love, following the rivals as they assemble and eventually square up with their respective crews (which is where Regina King, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfield presumingly factor in.)

Stream the star-studded The Harder They Fall soundtrack below. Catch the film in select theaters now ahead of its November 4th arrival on Netflix.
