‘Just Look Up’ marks the first collaboration between Grande and Cudi. It’s currently not known when the full song will be released. A tracklist for the Don’t Look Up official soundtrack is also yet to be revealed.
An official synopsis for the film reads: “Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system.
“The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate.”
It continues: “With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!”
Directed by Adam McKay, Don’t Look Up‘s star-studded ensemble cast also features the likes of Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet and Cate Blanchett.
Meanwhile, Ariana Grande has been cast as Glinda the Good Witch in the forthcoming Universal film adaptation of the Broadway musical Wicked.
