The Associate is the original motion picture soundtrack of the 1996 film The Associate, starring Whoopi Goldberg.

The soundtrack features Queen Latifah, Sophie B. Hawkins, American country singer Wynonna Judd, Canadian-American recording artist Tamia, CeCe Peniston, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson (both of The B-52s), Jamaican reggae singer Patra and Swedish musician Louise Hoffsten.

The cover version of "Yes We Can Can", originally released by the American R&B girl group The Pointer Sisters as their first hit single (No.#11 on the US Hot 100) in 1973,[2] was re-recorded for the soundtrack by Taral Hicks, Chantay Savage, LaShanda Reese and the Pointer Sisters themselves. Kate Pierson along with Cindy Wilson contributed with the new version of the McFadden & Whitehead's disco track "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" (No.#1 in the US R&B,[3] at #5 in UK Top 75[4] in 1979). From the classics, James Brown's composition "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" (No.#1 on the US R&B in 1966),[5] and Elton John's gospel ballad "The Border Song" (No.#92 in the US Hot 100 in 1970[6] were also present.
