Director of the film, Melina Matsoukas, spoke about the inspiration for the film’s music, stating “I wanted the soundtrack for Queen & Slim to showcase the historical evolution of Black music, from its roots in blues and soul to modern bounce, hip hop, and R&B–much like we used to see in film soundtracks in the ’90s.” Lauryn Hill is perfect for the soundtrack considering all the inspiration she has given to the woman who came after her with hits like “Doo Wop (That Thang),”and “Everything is Everything.” Including her album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill whose songs still receive millions of views on YouTube.
