Warner Bros. and DC Films’ “Suicide Squad” may have received both less-than-stellar reviews and a steep drop-off in ticket sales, but that didn’t stop the movie’s soundtrack from a record breaking debut. Billboard Music reports that the release went straight to the top of the charts, moving 182,000 units in sales for the week of August 11. Of that, 128,000 were physical copy sales, the best for a soundtrack in over a year-and-a-half.
The album — featuring tracks by Panic! at the Disco, Grimes, Twenty One Pilots, and Skrillex featuring Rick Ross — dropped the same day as the film’s August 5 theatrical release, and quickly became the first soundtrack to top the Billboard 200 chart in a year. The last soundtrack to do so was “Pitch Perfect 2,” released on May 30, 2015. Check out the video for Skrillex and Rick Ross’ single, “Purple Lamborghini,” below.
This and other sounds of “Suicide Squad” can be heard in the film itself, which stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto, in theaters now.
