New “Barbie” Album Trailer Unveils Nicki Minaj & Ice Spice’s “Barbie World” Track & Many More

Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice’s “Barbie World,” Charli XCX’s “Speed Drive,” Sam Smith’s “Man I Am,” Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?,” and Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night” are just some of the tracks on the Barbie album, a fittingly superstar-studded musical collaboration for Greta Gerwig’s superstar-packed film. Those are the artists featured in this brand-new Barbie trailer, which gives us a few new looks at Gerwig’s take on the iconic Matell doll, which is in theaters now after many months of growing excitement, amplified by the insanely clever marketing team.

Barbie stars Margot Robbie as the titular iconic doll, only in Gerwig and co-writer Noah Baumbach’s story, Barbie’s perfect life in Barbie Land is about to come undone. While life there, amongst a bevy of other Barbies, each with a different job (played by Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, and more), and Kens (Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans, and more) is as smooth as plastic and trouble-free, an existential crisis leads Robbie and Gosling’s Barbie and Ken to venture out of Barbie Land and into the real world, a decidedly imperfect, downright terrifying place, in order to save their home.

By now, you likely know that all eyes have been on July 21 for months, as excitement over Gerwig’s spin on Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s biopic Oppenheimer reached such a fevered pitch it birthed a new term, “Barbenheimer,” coined to describe the film fans who are planning on seeing both movies in the theaters this weekend. The differences between these two potential blockbusters only make them more intensely appealing as a double bill. It’s safe to say, however, that you won’t find Lizzo or Tame Impala on the Oppenheimer album.

The Barbie album also includes Fifty Fity, The Kid Laroi, Pinnk Panthress, HAIM, Khalid, Karol G, and more. You can check out more about the album here.

Check out the trailer below. Barbie is in theaters now.
