9 Artists The 'Mockingjay, Part 2' Soundtrack Should Feature, Because It's Time To Say Goodbye To Katniss With Style
The release of Mockingjay — Part 2 is closer than fans realize, which can be both good and bad news. As November creeps closer on the calendar, Hunger Games fans are getting more and more emotional. While I can't wait to see how the fourth movie will turn out, it doesn't hide the fact that this will be the final installment of the series. With all the hype of what will most likely be an epic finale, fans are wondering how exactly this film with compare to the rest. But the movie's release also has me wondering, what will the Mockingjay — Part 2 soundtrack be like?
Not only does November mark the release of the final film of the series, it also marks the release of the final soundtrack. Over the past few years, The Hunger Games franchise has had some amazing artists lend their creative skills to its soundtracks, from Ariana Grande to Lorde. So who, exactly, will they bring to the studio this time around to perfect that Panem sound? While no word has been confirmed on the track list as a whole, here are a few artists Mockingjay — Part 2 needs to include to ensure this will be the best soundtrack yet.
1. Ed Sheeran
It wouldn't be the first time he appeared on a movie soundtrack. Sheeran's soft vocals would be a great addition to the Hunger Games sound. Maybe his track would be Finnick and Annie's wedding song.
2. Tori Kelly
This girl is on fire right now, so it only makes sense that she would lend her killer vocals to this amazing soundtrack. She could write a song about the awe inspiring Mockingjay that is full of girl power.
3. Lana Del Rey
We all loved Rey's rendition of the Disney classic "Once Upon A Dream," so just imagine what haunting melody she could curate about war, rebellion and love.
I'm actually surprised this band hasn't been featured on a Hunger Games soundtrack already. Their sound would definitely make for a great song about the victors dealing with the aftermath of the games.
5. Kacey Musgraves
The first soundtrack was all about District 12's country roots, so why not bring that back for the final soundtrack? Musgraves' vocals would make for a beautiful song about the meadow in the spring.
6. Zella Day
Zella Day's futuristic sound would be the perfect depiction of the Capitol citizens' luxurious lifestyle.
7. Kendrick Lamar
Lamar's thought provoking lyrics would be the perfect battle song for the soundtrack. Think "Bad Blood" remix meets "i."
8. Florence + the Machine
I could totally see this song being about Gale, and his unrequited love with Katniss. Sad, yet beautiful at the same time.
9. Taylor Swift feat. Lorde
Fans have been dying for these besties to collaborate with each other, so why not do it for the movie's final soundtrack? Since Swift was featured on the first soundtrack, and Lorde was featured on the most recent, their duet would bring the series full circle at the ending credits.
