(October 12, 2018 – New York, NY) Def Jam Recordings – the iconic label and global brand synonymous with hip-hop culture – has partnered with 20th Century Fox on the release of the Official Soundtrack to the highly-anticipated film The Hate U Give, based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas.

Def Jam Recordings’ next generation of stars, Arlissa and Bobby Sessions, join an all-star cast of contemporary and legendary artists including Kendrick LamarPusha TLogicJadakiss, and Tupac Shakur for the official movie soundtrack of THE HATE U GIVE out now.

Arlissa and Bobby Sessions introduce new, previously unreleased songs on the soundtrack, which Variety raves “cleverly mimics the film’s outlook by oscillating between snatches of 2Pac and modern R&B;” South London-bred, 25-year old siren Arlissa, who recently appeared in the August issue Vogue,experienced her first real taste of success with her breakthrough track “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie.”

Arlissa’s defiant anthem “We Won’t Move” from THE HATE U GIVE soundtrack garnered early buzz at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of T.H.U.G., with Toronto’s NOW exclaiming “the soulful ballad has got ‘Oscar nominee’ written all over it.”

Watch the video HERE.

“It’s been a true honor to be involved in something so significant and relevant to today’s social climate,” Arlissa said. “I was one of the millions of people who were deeply touched by the book, so to be able to contribute to the movie, which shines such a strong light on inequality, has been a responsibility I’ve taken with such pride and care. This is not just a film, this is education”

Fiery Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions, who NPR raves “confronts racism with a captivating flow that’s both acrimonious and awe-inspiring,” and whose debut EP channels the anger and despair that accompany the cycle of systemic racism” according to XXL, closes out THE HATE U GIVE soundtrack album with its eponymous title tune, “The Hate U Give.”

Watch the video HERE.

Shaping up as one of the fall season’s breakout movies, The Hate U Give stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, a teen who is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.  Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. Fox’s limited release of The Hate U Give, delivered an estimated $500k from just 36 theaters for an impressive $13,889 per theater average, with a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Hate U Give also stars Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith and Sabrina Carpenter, with Common, and Anthony Mackie. The film was directed by George Tillman Jr. (NotoriousMen Of Honor), and produced by Robert Teitel, George Tillman Jr., Marty Bowen, and Wyck Godfrey.  The Hate U Give, whose screenplay was written by Audrey Wells (A Dog’s PurposeUnder The Tuscan Sun), is a Fox 2000 Pictures, State Street Pictures, and Temple Hill Entertainment production, distributed by 20th Century Fox.
