An Instagram post from Metro Boomin has confirmed that he will be presenting the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack on June 2 — the same day that the movie releases.
The “Bad and Boujee” and “Heartless” producer is best known for his collaborations with artists such as Young Thug, 21 Savage, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Drake, Kanye West, and Big Sean. This means fans can expect a star-studded soundtrack that is hip-hop focused, similar to the Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, which had the hit single “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee.
This continues the trend of rap music being part of the soundtracks of major action movies, including Kendrick Lamar’s work in Black Panther and J. Cole’s record label Dreamville’s work on Creed III: The Soundtrack.
