BOOTS turned down the Suicide Squad soundtrack: “Money is cool but gut feelings are stronger”

The producer was offered a spot the new DC Comics film’s soundtrack, but wasn’t vibing it.

You might have noticed around seventy thousand adverts for Suicide Squad, the new, critically-panned DC Comics film that was released last Friday, and boasts the likes of Grimes, Panic! At The Disco and a whole bunch more on its fit-to-burst soundtrack. It looks like one big name evaded them, though - producer and Beyoncé collaborator BOOTS, who turned down the offer.

Taking to Twitter, The ‘AQUΛRIA’ star expressed his doubts over the “pop music route” he saw the soundtrack taking. “saw a cut of it & was asked to do score in film. after seeing it I decided it wasn’t for me and politely declined,” he goes on the explain, before going all Ghandi: “the moral is money is cool but gut feelings are stronger and worth more. be real to u” Will do, mate.
