Atlantic Records gathered an impressive line-up consisting of Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors together for “Sucker For Pain”, the second single of the Suicide Squad movie’s soundtrack.
This medley of artists relate their trials and tribulations of self-destructive behavior. Whether it’s in tragic relationships or drug abuse, these self-described masochists are true suckers for pain. However, they take that pain because they care about their squad, and know that as horribly as they treat each other sometimes, they would walk through fire for each other, too.
There are also many parallels between the lyrics of this song and the characters appearing in Suicide Squad. Logic’s gun references are reminiscent of Deadshot, while Wiz Khalifa’s promotion of apathy to achieve success calls out to the Joker’s sociopathy. Even the hook and title itself reflect the sadomasochistic relationship between the Joker and Harley Quinn.
The music video was released June 23, 2016, announced via Imagine Dragons' Twitter.
