Atlantic Records has announced its release of “BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK),” due everywhere on Friday, April 8th. Barbershop: The Next Cut, a presentation of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM, arrives in theatres nationwide on Friday, April 15th.
“BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK),” is available now for pre-order (http://smarturl.it/BarbershopPreOrder), with all pre-orders accompanied by an instant grat download of the soundtrack’s lead track, “Real People,” by Ice Cube & Common. The two iconic stars recently premiered the track via Complex and discussed its upcoming companion video in an exclusive interview.
As if that weren’t enough, “BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK),” also features Atlantic Records signee Lizzo’s debut single “Good As Hell.” The track premiered earlier this month exclusively on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 on Apple Music before going on sale at all DSP’s http://smarturl.it/LizzoGoodAsHell, as well as all streaming services http://smarturl.it/StreamGoodAsHell.
Produced by Ricky Reed (Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo, 2 Chainz), “Good As Hell” has fast received online love from a range of national outlets. “A slickly crafted piece of retro, self-loving lyricism,” declared SPIN, “meshes everything (Lizzo) does best into one powerful package.” “A massive new feel-good anthem,” raved The Line of Best Fit while Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current proclaimed, “If (‘Good As Hell’) is any indication of what’s ahead, Lizzo is quickly moving up the ranks of the indie hip-hop world and starting to crossover into mainstream pop.” “The soul-grooving, piano-driven song is (Lizzo’s) most radio-friendly yet,” applauded City Pages. “(‘Good As Hell’) reiterates her trademark messages of self-love and empowerment.”
“BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK),” also includes such tracks as Atlantic recording artist CeeLo Green’s “Working Class Heroes (Work).” The latter track – originally found on the GRAMMY® Award-winning Green’s 2015 Atlantic release, “HEART BLANCHE” – is joined by a brand new official companion video out now (https://youtu.be/-fKPn0t7j6Y) after its preview on the nationally syndicated Access Hollywood.

ABOUT BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT
Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are reunited in Barbershop: The Next Cut, directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man films, Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins).
It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.
Barbershop: The Next Cut also stars Regina Hall (Think Like a Man), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Eve (Whip It), and JB Smoove (The Millers), with Oscar winner Common (Best Song, Selma), and Nicki Minaj (The Other Woman).
Lee directed the film from a screenplay by Kenya Barris (Black-ish) & Tracy Oliver (The Neighbors), based on characters created by Mark Brown. Barbershop: The Next Cut reteams the producers from the first two films, by Robert Teitel, p.g.a George L. Tillman Jr., p.g.a. and Ice Cube, p.g.a. Malcolm D. Lee, Becki Cross Trujillo, Ronald G. Muhammed and Jeff Kwatinetz are serving as executive producers. Greg Gardiner is the director of photography; Paul Millspuagh, the editor; Ina Mayhew, the production designer; and Danielle Hollowell, the costume designer. Music Supervisor is Gabe Hilfer with music by Stanley Clarke.
Opening nationwide April 15, 2016, Barbershop: The Next Cut, is a presentation of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. Rated PG-13.
