    Swae Lee and Jhené Aiko Link for New Track “In The Dark”

    Swae Lee and Jhené Aiko have teamed up on a new single, “In The Dark,” for the soundtrack of Marvel Studios’ soon-to-be-released film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings.

    “Don’t leave me in the dark, I deserve more, I’m somebody’s reward,” Swae sings at the chorus about an ex-lover. “Yeah, I gave her good vibes, oh, you had a good run, I’m far from a regular person.”

    “Baby, my love unconditional/It’s about more than material,” Aiko vocalizes in response on her verse. “Don’t leave me hanging out in the cold/Somethings I don’t need to know, but don’t leave me in the dark.”

    The pop-doused record arrives on the heels of DJ Snake, Rick Ross and Rich Brian’s “Run It” and 21 Savage‘s “Lazy Susan” with Rich Brian, Masiwei and Warren Hue, both of which will also appear on the soundtrack.

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings, starring Sim Liu, will premiere in theaters on September 3. Awkwafina, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Meng’er Zhang, Benedict Wong, Tony Leung and Michelle Yeoh are also set to star in the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed film.

    In March of last year, Aiko dropped her third studio album Chilombo, which includes 20 tracks and features Ab-Soul, Big Sean, Future, Miguel, NasH.E.R., John Legend, and Ty Dolla $ign. The record debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart, after raking a whopping 152,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
