Megan Thee Stallion and Normani team up to form the ultimate bad girl duo on the song and video for the “Diamonds,” the lead single off the forthcoming Birds of Prey: The Album, the official soundtrack for the film.

Megan is clearly in her element in the video inspired by the movie’s main character Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), as she spits her aggressive lyrics, dispatches some goons, and squeezes in some twerking while Normani handles hook duty. The track itself is historic due to the fact it’s the first song to interpolate and sample Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” which lives in the hook of the song.

The soundtrack, which arrives on February 7 alongside the Birds of Prey film, sticks to the theme of the movie of “girl power” by featuring an all-star ensemble of today’s biggest female musical acts. The soundtrack features songs from Doja Cat, Saweetie, Summer Walker, Halsey, Sofi Tukker, Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), and more.
