Kelly Lynch said it best in the 2000 version of Charlie’s Angels: “Never send a man to do a woman’s job.” Nineteen years later, Elizabeth Banks gets in the director’s chair and casts Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska to play the next generation of Charlie’s Angels. As the soundtrack’s co-executive producer, Ariana Grande recruits Miley Cyrus, Normani, and Kiana Ledé as just some of the fierce voices that emphasize Charlie’s Angels' themes of bravery, teamwork, and girl power. Kash Doll, Kim Petras, ALMA, and Stefflon Don jump right in to showcase the strength of women in numbers on the opener “How It’s Done.” The celebration continues on “Got Her Own,” with Ariana Grande and frequent collaborator Victoria Monét flexing their independence while they drop lines like “He might got money, but I bet she got her own.” Amid the soundtrack’s legion of current dance-pop stars, forebearers Chaka Khan and the late Donna Summer are given the spotlight they deserve on “Nobody” and “Bad Girls (Gigamesh Remix),” respectively. In paying tribute to Angels past, Jack Elliot and Allyn Ferguson team up to give their Charlie’s Angels theme a modernized renovation, mixing the horns and bass of the original with trance-like dance loops.
