“Atlantic Records isn't f***ing around when it comes to the official Bright soundtrack.” – COMPLEX
Atlantic Records has unveiled another massive track from BRIGHT: THE ALBUM, the official companion to the upcoming Netflix blockbuster film BRIGHT from director David Ayer starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. “Danger” – which pairs Migos with masked producer Marshmello just days after the chart-topping hip-hop trio garnered two top GRAMMY® Award nominations – is available now via all DSPs and is joined by an action-packed companion visual featuring never-before-seen footage from BRIGHT, streaming now HERE. BRIGHT: THE ALBUM arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, December 15th; BRIGHT premieres Friday, December 22nd around the globe on Netflix.
“Danger” follows a series of exclusive track releases heralding BRIGHT: THE ALBUM, including last week’s release of “Broken People” from Logic & Rag‘n’Bone Man, which arrived in tandem with an accompanying visualizer content piece created by the animators of BRIGHT’s opening title sequence, viewable HERE. “Broken People” was preceded by “Home” from the incomparable trio of Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha. The hit track is accompanied by a heart-warming companion video directed by acclaimed BRIGHT director David Ayer. The video, which features actual cast members including cops and orcs from BRIGHT, debuted on Thanksgiving Day and is streaming now at Atlantic Records’ official YouTube channel. Before the release of “Home,” the first two tracks from BRIGHT: THE ALBUM: “World Gone Mad” by Bastille and “Darkside” by Ty Dolla $ign & Future (Feat. Kiiara) were revealed along with the album’s official track listing. The four tracks released thus far have amassed over 46 million global streams. All companion videos can currently be seen on Netflix in the anthology BRIGHT: THE MUSIC VIDEOS.
Next Friday, the mind-blowing track listing of original music that is BRIGHT: THE ALBUM will finally be available at all DSPs. Beyond the previously released instant grat tracks, BRIGHT: THE ALBUM has further united artists from all ends of the musical spectrum to produce unparalleled joint efforts including “FTW (F**k The World)” by A$AP Rocky & Tom Morello, “That’s My N****,” by Meek Mill, YG & Snoop Dogg, “Crown” by Camila Cabello & Grey, “Smoke My Dope” by Steve Aoki & Lil Uzi Vert, “Campfire” by DRAM & Neil Young and more.
Grammy-nominated multi-platinum Atlanta super-group, Migos, are the most important trio in modern music. Having a seismic impact on the music world with their seminal tour de force, the RIAA Certified Platinum album CULTURE which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Charts, they were nominated for two Grammy awards for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance at the 2018 Grammy Awards. Migos also won “Best Group” at the BET awards and took home the award for “Best Collaboration” for their smash hit “Bad & Boujee” ft. Lil Uzi Vert which also debuted at number 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The 4x platinum track that spent 36 weeks on the chart will go down in history as a symbol of 2017 pop culture along with historic television performances on Saturday Night Live, Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Migos continue their takeover as cultural pioneers by pushing the boundaries of rap: the group recently enlisted two of the biggest females in rap, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, to create rare moment for their blockbuster single “MotorSport" that will appear on their forthcoming CULTURE II album coming soon on Quality Control Music / Motown Records / Capitol Records.
Marshmello, the anonymous Producer/DJ is taking the music industry by storm. Becoming one of the fastest rising dance producers in history, his fanbase ranges from children to adults who have helped him gather over 2 billion streams and over 300 consecutive sold out shows worldwide, currently making him one of Spotify’s Top 10 most listened to Artists in the world. Catapulting his career with his official remix of Jack U and Justin Bieber’s global hit “Where Are U Now’ which collected over 40 million plays on Spotify & SoundCloud in less than six months. The masked producer’s debut album, Joytime, charted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Albums on release day and landed in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums. Marshmello’s track “Alone” propelled his monumental success with over 117 million Spotify plays and over 900 million video views, making it certified Platinum in only 1 year. Collaborations with a wide variety of artists, most recently with music’s pop princess Selena Gomez “Wolves” hit #1 on Billboards Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart. All the while his other hit single “Silence” featuring Khalid has over 300 million streams on Spotify and risen to number eight on Spotify’s Global charts. As the layers of mystery continue to surround the man behind the mask, there is no doubt Marshmello’s rapid takeover of the electronic-sphere will continue to leave everyone wanting more.
From the director of SUICIDE SQUAD and END OF WATCH, David Ayer, comes a new action-packed film starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez and Lucy Fry. The Netflix Film was produced by Ayer, Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless and will be released on Netflix on December 22nd.
Set in an alternate present-day, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (SUICIDE SQUAD, END OF WATCH, writer of TRAINING DAY) follows two cops from very different backgrounds.

Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a deadly, thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything. http://www.netflix.com/bright
