“Sucker For Pain” is a Stunning Collaboration Between Rap and Pop/Rock

Sucker For Pain, a song from the “Suicide Squad: The Album”, is a massive collaboration that is officially a Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Imagine Dragons song featuring Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, and X Ambassadors.

SUCKER FOR PAIN: A-

Melding a peerless and versatile beat that brilliantly shadows Imagine Dragons’s and X Ambassador’s chorus and the four rapper’s verses, Sucker For Pain captures the feel of “Suicide Squad”‘s vicious, sultry tone.

This striking single separates itself from generic rap collaborations by capitalizing on each rapper’s strengths, notably Logic’s catchy and off-beat verse that steals the song. Wiz and Lil Wayne both fire back at each other, resulting in a mirrored sentiment that reverberates through the track. All of this is completed by an infectious and poignant chorus that Imagine Dragons boasts after each rap verse.

Without a doubt, I am a Sucker For Pain, and I would argue, is better than SS:TA’s first offering, Heathens by Twenty One Pilots.
