Skrillex and Rick Ross have collaborated for “Purple Lamborghini,” a Beat Billionaire-produced song featured as a single for the Suicide Squad soundtrack. The single has thus far been a success, picking up 1 million listens per day since its initial release.
The team has released a video for the song, featuring themselves and Jared Leto as The Joker lurking about Miami over the course of a night. While Jared Leto’s appearance in The Suicide Squad has been labeled as a glorified cameo, the character plays a more prominent role in the music video.
While we actually see the Joker this time around, we do not see any actual purple Lamborghinis. Video director Colin Tilley addresses the car’s absence in an interview with Rad Radio.com, explaining that the purple Lamborghini is more about the “lifestyle” than a car.
Sonny [Skrillex] and I talked about it a bunch and we were like, we could just have a mob of purple Lambos going down the street instead of all these donks. To me is was just such a sicker image to see Sonny and Rick Ross in a huge old school with 26 inch rims with this whole fleet of other donks following them. It was like Ross’ squad mobbin’ through Miami… It just made sense. It would have been typical to see purple Lamborghinis.
“Purple Lamborghini” is the third single released off the Suicide Squad soundtrack, following Twentyone Pilot’s “Heathens” and “Sucker for Pain” by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Logic and Ty Dolla $ign, Imagine Dragons, and X Ambassadors.
