The album has taken over every individual of every age group by creating a comforting atmosphere. The album consists of 17 songs in total. It isn't just the trendsetter but it also plays a massive role in shattering gender norms. Mark Ronson, plays a huge role in the production of the movie's album and he certainly did not disappoint.

Their first-ever song, Dance The Night by Dua Lipa has been on the top charts for several weeks now. The song perfectly captures the brilliant fusion of the 80's rock nostalgia and modern pop sensibilities, followed by her beautiful, raspy vocals making the song more groove-able. The album has everything you need. It is a rollercoaster of emotions that takes it's listeners on a captivating ride through highs and lows, masterfully transitioning from one song to the next.

My personal and utmost favorite is 'I'm Just Ken.' The song just stands out as a musical masterpiece that cinematically twist into the narrative tapestry of the character and has become THE ANTHEM for Innumerable 'Kens' out there. It's got the perfect musical vibe to it and is the perfect energy booster for your weariest day. We have many heavily talented and renowned artists like Ice Spice & Nicki Minaj, Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, PinkPantheress, and many more who have given this movie the perfect music that it deserves.

The song of the album is definitely a tie between 'I'm Just Ken' by Ryan Gosling & 'What Was I Made for' by Billie Eilish, These songs beautifully capture the emotional journey of both Ken and Barbie with remarkable sensitivity. Billie's gentle and comforting vocals effortlessly intertwine into the narrative, while Ryan's powerful and precise vocals add a dynamic edge. These songs complement the characters' stories, creating an immersive experience that deeply tugs at one's emotions.

Overall, Barbie: The Album may not seem as hyped but it sure sets the tone of the film right.
