On November 15, Motown Records will release Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack . Starring Oscar® nominee Daniel Kaluuya ( Get Out ), Queen & Slim  is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence. The film, from GRAMMY ® -winning director Melina Matsoukas and Emmy ®-winning writer Lena Waithe, is due in theaters November 27 following its November 14 premiere at AFI Fest in Los Angeles, where it opens the festival.

The music in the film serves as an additional voice and showcases the range of talent across Black artists with a compelling blend of genres. The 17-song soundtrack features new tracks by Ms. Lauryn Hill, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Vince Staples featuring 6lack X Mereba, Tiana Major 9 & EARTHGANG, Coast Contra featuring BJ The Chicago Kid and Syd, plus classic songs by Roy Ayers, Bilal, Mike Jones and others. Blood Orange composed the film’s score and is featured on the soundtrack.

Today, Motown Records unveiled “Collide” by Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG  – and the accompanying video, which was recently shot in London. Benny Cassette (Kanye West, John Legend) produced the heartfelt duet. Newly signed to Motown, Tiana Major9 has earned early support from BBC Radio 1Xtra. Hailing her as an artist to watch,

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam, Waithe and Matsoukas served as executive soundtrack producers. Together, they have created a soundtrack that unfolds like a road trip, mirroring the physical, emotional and spiritual journey that the lead characters take in the film.
