Birdman has enlisted Lil Wayne for his new single “Stunnaman.” The song, which also features Roddy Ricch, serves as the first single off the upcoming She Ball soundtrack and will hit streaming services on Friday (May 21) alongside a video.
She Ball, which has been nearly four years in the making, will be released via Birdman’s Cash Money Films and stars Nick Cannon and Chris Brown, along with Cedric the Entertainer, DC Young Fly, Evan Ross, and Faizon Love. The film tells the story of a young female athlete, played by Melody Rae Kandil, who defies the odds on and off the basketball court.
“She Ball is about community, and the inclusive nature of controlling your own background,” said Cannon. “It’s a story that doesn’t have any boundaries. It’s a sports movie, it’s a love story, and it’s a comedy.”
“Stunnaman” marks a reunion for Birdman and Wayne following their highly-publicized legal battle, which they settled in 2018. Last year, Birdman said that he wanted to record a sequel to his and Wayne’s 2006 joint album Like Father, Like Son before retiring.
“Rapping ain’t for me no more, I’m done with that shit. I like to make rappers, that’s what I do,” he told Wayne on an episode of Young Money Radio. “I just want it to be my little farewell thing. I want to go out how I came in.”
