Here’s everything you need to know about the Barbie soundtrack, including the list of artists and other details.
It’s no secret that one of the biggest, and pinkest, movies of the summer is Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. Starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and a whole host of A-list actors, the movie is set to explore Barbie’s connection to the real world and how she becomes more than just a doll.
Fans have wondered what the soundtrack for the movie would look like. There’s already an incredibly famous song dedicated to the doll by the band Aqua, who wrote and performed the 1997 classic hit Barbie Girl.
When pop star Dua Lipa was announced as part of the cast, excitement around the soundtrack only grew. And now we have know who will be on the soundtrack and other fun details about it.

According to DiscussingFilms, Gosling contribution to the soundtrack will be a song titled “I’m Just Ken,” which seems to play on Gerwig’s interpretation of Ken. In a recent interview with Vogue, Gerwig explained that she thinks Ken was “invented after Barbie, to burnish Barbie’s position in our eyes and in the world. That kind of creation myth is the opposite of the creation myth in Genesis.”
As for Aqua’s contribution to the soundtrack, it was announced that they have collaborated with Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice to create a new version of Barbie Girl which is now titled Barbie World. Minaj has famously referred to herself as Harajuku Barbie, one of her rapping alter egos, since her 2010 debut, so it makes sense that she would be the artist to work on such an iconic song linked to the Barbie brand.
Dua Lipa, who will be playing a mermaid Barbie in the film, announced earlier this week that she will be putting out a new song from Barbie: The Album titled “Dance the Night Away.” While the full song will be available on May 26, fans can hear a snippet of it in the extended Barbie trailer that just dropped today.
