Joining together for an amazing collaboration to start off the new year, Megan Thee Stallion and Normani teamed up in turning an iconic anthem for women into a hot track for the new Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) movie. The Houston natives released “Diamonds” as a single off the soundtrack, Birds of Prey: The Album, and man did they shine in the new video.
The song was perfect for the duo, which makes sense because it was written by no other than Megan and Normani, along with Tayla Parx and Louis Bell. The new track takes inspiration from Marilyn Monroe‘s infamous, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” performed in the 50’s hit film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes but takes a nice twist with lyrics like, “All the best things in life come for free/ But don’t you think that applies to me.”
Visuals for the song fit the Birds of Prey movie to a T, with exclusive scenes from the movie itself and its star, Margot Robbie, as Harley Quinn thrown in so effortlessly it looked as if it were all from the same scene.
Catch Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) out in theaters on February 7th!
