The music video for 'Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable)', featuring James Brown and 2Pac, has just exclusively premiered on the VEVO home page as part of the hub's Academy Awards coverage this weekend. The song remains a centerpiece of the unanimously celebrated Django Unchained: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack [Loma Vista/Republic Records].

The video itself features a pastiche of kinetic scenes from Django Unchained, punctuated by visceral and vibrant animation. It collects some of the film's most explosive moments into one bullet-riddled and beautiful clip fueled by the iconic styles of the legendary James Brown and 2Pac. The video truly packs a wallop. Watch it below.

To date, the soundtrack has sold over 200K copies worldwide. Meanwhile, the film from legendary writer and director Quentin Tarantino won the Golden Globe Award 'Best Original Screenplay' and 'Best Original Screenplay' and 'Best Supporting Actor' for Christoph Waltz at the BAFTA Awards. It's nominated for a total of 5 Academy Awards including 'Best Picture', 'Best Original Screenplay', 'Best Supporting Actor' [Waltz], 'Best Cinematography', and 'Best Sound Editing'

At the box office, the movie galloped right to the top. Upon its Christmas Day release, Django Unchained made $15 million dollars and debuted at #2—a record for an R-rated film. Since then, it's become Tarantino's highest grossing and most successful film to date.

The soundtrack matched the film's level of esteem and fervor. Entertainment Weekly featured it on the "Must List", and Rolling Stone wrote, Django Unchained marks the first time Tarantino has collaborated with artists to create original music for his film and soundtrack. Four original songs from the film were also short-listed for 'Best Original Song' at the Academy Awards.

The legend of Django Unchained continues to grow stronger. Be sure to check out the video now!
