Buju Banton on ‘Bad Boys’ soundtrack - Joins the likes of Inner Circle and Diana King on the film’s list of features
Reggae artiste Buju Banton has started 2020 with a bang.
The entertainer, who ended 2019 by signing with Jay-Z's Roc Nation label, is featured on the official soundtrack for Will Smith and Martin Lawrence's movie, Bad Boys For Life.
The announcement was made via DJ Khaled's official Instagram page on Wednesday. As part of the soundtrack, Banton joins the likes of Smith's son Jaden, Meek Mill, City Girls, Black Eyed Peas, and J Balvin.
Banton is featured on a track titled Murda She Wrote.
THE WEEKEND STAR sought to get a comment from Banton's team on how the feature came about, but other than confirming the artiste's inclusion, no other information was offered.
This is not the first time a Jamaican has featured on the official soundtrack for the Bad Boys movie franchise.
When the first movie was released in 1996, Diana King made the cut with her song Shy Guy. Inner Circle's Bad Boys' Reply, featuring Tek, was also on that soundtrack.
The reggae group's song, Bad Boys, has the movie's official title track for all three films.
Bad Boys For Life, which is the final movie in the franchise, is expected to premiere on January 17.
That is also the date the soundtrack is expected to be released. The project was produced by We The Best Music Group and Epic Records.
