Halle Berry joins forces with Grammy winner Cardi B to executive produce the first all-female hip-hop sountrack for her forthcoming directorial debut 'Bruised', which is slated to hit theaters on November 17th and Netflix a week later on November 24th.
“I can’t wait to show it,” Berry tells Variety. “I have to tell you, one of the things I’m most excited about is the title song that H.E.R. sang… and she killed it. So I can’t wait to share with everyone and am super excited.”

Hand-selected by executive producers Berry and Cardi B, the film’s soundtrack features six original songs by award-winning and multi-platinum female artists, including Cardi B (“Bet It”), Saweetie (“Attitude”), City Girls (“Scared”), H.E.R. (“Automatic Woman”), Flo Milli (“Blast Off”) and Latto (“Tha Fuck”).

Halle Berry Honored At 2021 Elle Women In Hollywood Event

On Tuesday (10/19) in Los Angeles, Halle Berry was honored as one of ELLE’s Women in Hollywood for her most recent movie Bruised, which she directs and stars in.

“I can't tell you what it means to be in this room and feel our femininity because it's palpable and it's real,” Berry said. “By watching you, I’ve been able to dream, I’ve been able to have a path made for a little Black girl from Cleveland.”



She also thanked Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins for “being a beacon and leading the way” for other women directors.

“You allowed me to know that maybe I could direct a film one day,” Berry said. “There are so many times where, as women, we don’t think we have the right to direct, we can only be the dancing fucking bear. Well, you know what? We can be more than the dancing fucking bear.”
