The Associate is the original motion picture soundtrack of the self-titled movie from 1996, starring Whoopi Goldberg, the winner of a Grammy, seven Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes, a Tony, as well as an Oscar. It was released on October 15, 1996 from Motown Records. Apart from the Grammy Award winner Queen Latifah, to the soundtrack contributed other three Grammy Award nominees, Sophie B. Hawkins, American country singer Wynonna Judd, and Canadian-American recording artist Tamia. Besides them, CeCe Peniston, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson (both of The B-52s), Jamaican reggae singer Patra, and Swedish musician Louise Hoffsten perform on the compilation.

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, was re-recorded for the soundtrack by Taral Hicks, Chantay Savage, LaShanda Reese and The 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, at #5 in UK Top 75 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), and Elton John's gospel ballad "The Border Song" (No.#92 in the US Hot 100 in 1970 were also present.
