Suicide Squad: The Music Videos

Rick Ross and The Joker in the video for Purple Lamborghini

The build up to the release of DC's next movie in the extended cinematic universe has been one of the most rampant campaigns we've seen for a long time. Suicide Squad has had numerous trailers, TV spots and extended character profiles since the teaser of the film a year ago at San Diego Comic Con.

Another route Warner Bros has taken, which is often neglected these days, is the accompanying musical soundtrack. Made up of a majority of new music and a few covers, there have already been four music videos released. Two of these dropped in the same week in June, the third on the day the movie hit cinemas and the fourth a few days later.

The videos so far are from twenty one pilots with "Heathens", Ty Dolla $ign, Logic, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors with "Sucker For Pain", Skrillex and Rick Ross with "Purple Lamborghini" and Kehlani with "Gangsta".

All the tracks feature in the actual movie and for the most part fit extremely well, showing that some thought was put in to the compilation. Jared Leto even reprises his take on The Joker in the video for "Purple Lamborghini". Watch all four videos below. We may even see more. Who knows?
