After five years, Ms. Lauryn Hill finally has new music on the way! The new song will be featured on Queen & Slim’s official soundtrack, which is set to be released on November 15th.

The soundtrack will feature 17 songs from modern day artists such as Vince Staples, Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG, BJ The Chicago Kid and Syd, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lil Baby. Older songs by Roy Ayers, Bilal, and Mike Jones will also be thrown into the mix. 

“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,” said the film’s director Melina Matsoukas. “We partnered with Motown because of their legacy within Black music. I am honored to have worked beside Ethiopia [Habtemariam] and cannot wait for audiences to hear what each artist has created.”

Written by Lena Waithe and James Frey, Queen & Slim centers on the first date of a man (Slim) and woman (Queen), which results in the two of them being forced to go on the run after Slim kills a police officer in self-defense during a minor traffic violation. It stars Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Indya Moore, Chloe Sevigny, Bokeem Woodbine, and Jahi Winston. Queen & Slim will hit theaters on November 27th.
