Kehlani "Gangsta"

Kehlani's seductive new visual for "Gangsta" serves as the soundtrack to Suicide Squad characters Harley Quinn and Joker's bad romance, as the singer channels the supervillainess herself with "Good Night" bat and all.

"I need a gangsta/ To love me better/ Than all the others do/ To always forgive me/ Ride or die with me/ That's just what gangsters do," the Oakland native sings on the hook. In a recent interview on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, the film's director David Ayer also said Kehlani's offering has a "raw, broken, yet haunting quality."

'Suicide Squad' Soundtrack: Skrillex & Rick Ross, Panic! at the Disco Cover 'Bohemian Rhapsody' & More

The star-studded DC wrongdoer flick -- the cast is comprised of actors Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie, among others -- raked in $135.1 million at the box office with the biggest August opening despite shaky reviews, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The soundtrack also boasted its fair share of big names, including cuts from Twenty One Pilots, Skrillex and Rick Ross, as well as a loaded collaboration between Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors.
