SZA and Justin Timberlake recently collaborated for a new single and video entitled “The Other Side,”  the theme song for the forthcoming Trolls World Tour film.

The new record and video were released on Wednesday (Feb. 26). The song is produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ludwig Göransson and Timberlake.

“I was so thrilled to be invited to participate in this project with Justin,” said SZA in a press release. “The creative process of working with him and the team was filled with such excitement. It’s an energy you can feel in both the song and music video. I can’t wait for people to check it out.”

“The Other Side” is the first single deriving from the upcoming Trolls World Tour (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), which will be released on March 13th via RCA Records and is available for pre-order now.

“It has been such a fun process writing and executive producing for this project,” said Timberlake about the soundtrack which also includes  Anderson .Paak, Mary J. Blige, George Clinton, Dierks Bentley, Anthony Ramos, and Kelly Clarkson.

“Being able to bring together different creatives from various disciplines and genres has been the most rewarding part. Creating something that serves the movie while still being able to exist apart from it has been a fun challenge that was made even more exciting by working with the other amazing artists that helped us put this together.” Trolls World Tour will hit theaters on April 17, 2020.
