Surely that’s crossing the streams. 

The new Ghostbusters film has already garnered some negative attention, with stuck-in-the-past fans of the original distraught that Paul Feig’s reboot will feature an all-female lead cast. Details of the film’s soundtrack have now been revealed, too, and there’s some unusual choices in there – not least being a collaboration between Missy Elliott and Fall Out Boy, with the band’s bassist Pete Wentz confirming that they’ve covered Ray Parker’s iconic theme song.

The soundtrack, which will be released on the same day as the film (July 15), will also feature 5 Seconds of Summer, Walk the Moon, G-Eazy feat Jermih, Wolf Alice and more. The lead single, Elle King’s ‘Good Girls’, was released yesterday (June 2).

Ghostbusters has already spawned some other odd collaborations: back in March, Nas revealed that his clothing brand HSTRY will debut a limited run inspired by the film franchise. Watch a video of Nas explaining his interest in the movies as a kid below.

A new Missy album is expected for 2016 but details are currently scarce, although Timbaland and Pharrell Williams are said to have been in the studio with her. She debuted a new track, ‘Pep Rally’ at this year’s Super Bowl, and in 2015 released her Pharrell-collab ‘WTF (Where They From)’, which was her first official single in 10 years.
