FIFTY FIFTY, the girl group embroiled in a contract dispute with their agency ATTRAKT, released a new track on the Barbie movie soundtrack. However, multiple sources have noticed that it wasn’t featured in the movie.

The song, titled “Barbie Dreams,” was released through Warner Music Korea as part of the original soundtrack for the movie. The album, which dropped the same day the movie hit theaters, features a star-studded lineup of artists, including Ava Max, GAYLE, HAIM, Khalid, Lizzo, PinkPantheress, Sam Smith, Tame Impala, and The Kid Laroi.

Although FIFTY FIFTY’s song made the tracklisting, it was conspicuously absent from the movie. It wasn’t in the end credits, either. Fans and industry insiders alike were perplexed. As of this writing, why the song was cut from the movie remains unclear.

The release of “Barbie Dreams” comes amid a legal battle between FIFTY FIFTY and their agency, ATTRAKT. The group filed an injunction against ATTRAKT to suspend their exclusive contract, and the legal battle is ongoing. Amidst this situation, the fact that FIFTY FIFTY even has a song on the Barbie soundtrack is worth celebrating.

The uncertain fate of Barbie Dreams

The Barbie movie, which has been the subject of intense hype, features an all-star cast including Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. So far, it has received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Critics praised the production design, screenplay, and of course, the soundtrack.

However, the exclusion of FIFTY FIFTY‘s song from the film has added an unexpected twist to the narrative surrounding the Barbie movie and its soundtrack. As the dispute between FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT continues, the fate of “Barbie Dreams” remains uncertain. Some fans hope the girls will get a chance to promote it, but it’s unknown whether that’s even possible.

Despite the controversy, the Barbie soundtrack has been well-received, with audiences praising the catchy tunes and diverse lineup of artists. As for FIFTY FIFTY, the release of “Barbie Dreams” amid their contract dispute represents a significant milestone for the group, even if the song failed to reach the silver screen. — K-Pop News Writer
