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.
Read the full tweet thread below, and catch up with our chat with BOOTS from last year right here.
WE’VE GOT A FAVOUR TO ASK
We’re often asked by potential advertisers about you, our readers. So we’d really appreciate it if you’d offer up a bit of information about you, and your music-loving habits by filling in our 2019 readers’ survey.
(Don’t worry, none of what we’re asking for is personally identifiable - and no questions are compulsory.)
