Sade, Kehlani and Chloe x Halle Tapped for ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Soundtrack

After an eight-year hiatus, we will finally hear new music from the legendary Sade. The “Smooth Operator” has been enlisted for the A Wrinkle in Time movie soundtrack on a song titled “Flower of the Universe.”  Ava DuVernay, who directed the film and produced the soundtrack, broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday.

“I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway,’ DuVerynay tweeted. “She was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It’s entitled ‘Flower of the Universe.’ And it’s a dream come true.”

The soundtrack includes two versions of “Flower of the Universe” performed by Sade, one of which is a remix by No I.D. She co-wrote and co-produced the track with Ben Travers and Andrew Hale. This is Sade’s second original song contribution to a soundtrack following 1986’s Absolute Beginners.

Singer-songwriter Kehlani was also booked for the soundtrack on a song called “Let Me Live.” Also included is “Warrior,” written and performed by sisters Chloe x Halle. The duo is signed to Beyoncé’s label Parkwood Entertainment.

Speaking about the artists and composer, DuVernay said: “Each song on the Wrinkle in Time soundtrack was crafted with great care in close collaboration with the artists. My creative partnership with Sade on ‘Flower of the Universe’ was so connected that I reverse engineered the usual process and used her lyrics as actual dialogue within the film.

She added, “I truly loved working with DJ Khaled who jumped into this project with open arms and an open heart, along with the great Demi Lovato. Sia, Kehlani and Chloe x Halle beautifully embraced the visuals of the film to create distinct songs that expand and elevate Meg’s heroic journey. And working with Ramin Djawadi was a dream come true as I have been a long-time admirer of his stellar work. His musical compositions for the film are perfectly otherworldly.”

The soundtrack will release digitally on March 9, which is also the same day the film premieres in theaters.

Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time is an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

10 Years Later: A Retrospective of Mary J. Blige’s ‘Growing Pains’ Album

This duet would be first release from Blige since April’s Strength of a Woman. In late November, she told Billboard, “Normally it takes me two years after I make an album to go on to the next, but the title [which Blige hasn’t revealed yet] just came to me so clear, and when that happens I know I have to move on. I guess because there was so much darkness, the next thing had to be light. I need it to have some party songs.”

Maybe Kehlani and Blige’s pairing with Kaytranda will yield one of those records. We’ll just have to see.
