The Greta Gerwig-directed live-action movie arrives on 21 July.

The much-discussed Barbie is almost here and a line-up of artists set to feature on its soundtrack have today (25 Thursday) been announced. One of the film’s stars, Ryan Gosling – who will play Ken alongside Margot Robbie’s Barbie – appears on the artist line-up, where former Crack Magazine cover stars Charli XCX and PinkPantheress also feature.

Ice Spice, Nicki Minaj, Tame Impala, HAIM and Dua Lipa – who plays a mermaid in the upcoming film – Lizzo and Khalid will also feature on the soundtrack, which will also be released on 21 July. Dua Lipa’s single Dance The Night from the soundtrack will be released tomorrow (26 May). The pop star teased a snippet of the song earlier this week. Take a look.
