There’s some collaborations that take us by surprise, and there’s ones like these that leave our jaw hanging on the floor. In one of the most star-studded tracks of the year, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and Mike WiLL Made-It come together to drop a bomb on us. The tune is called “The Mantra,” and it’s going to be part of the Creed II soundtrack, which drops November 21 with the film.
If you didn’t already know, Mike WiLL Made-It was enlisted to put together the soundtrack for the boxing movie sequel, and he’s already come through with an amazing tracklist. Along with Kendrick and Pharrell, Mike Will managed to bring together Nicki Minaj, Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, YG, A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, and many more on the soundtrack.
Mike WiLL has big shoes to fill in regards to movie soundtracks, considering Black Panther dropped theirs earlier this year, which was spearheaded by Kendrick Lamar. Based on the tracklist alone, it could definitely give Black Panther’s soundtrack a run for its money. We’ll find out for sure how fire it is a week from today.
For now, have a listen to Kendrick and Pharrell’s single from the album below and enjoy!
