The “Creed II” soundtrack will have a touch of Atlanta on it, because Mike WiLL Made-It has been tapped to curate it.
The Marietta-native, who has worked with Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and others, will work alongside composer Lugwig Göransson and music supervisors Fam Rothstein and Jen Malone to executive produce the album, according to Variety.
In a statement, the rapper and producer said he approached the project by first watching “Creed II.” He then revealed that he created the type of playlist that listeners could “work out to, chill to, vibe to or to get them through any struggle which matched specific scenes in the movie.”
“It’s important to show the new generation that soundtracks can be just as exciting as traditional albums if put in the hands of the right curator. After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back,” he said.
“I’ve always been a fan of Mike WiLL’s production. I knew we were in store for something crazy and refreshing when we brought him in to curate the ‘Creed II’ soundtrack,” added the film’s star Michael B. Jordan.
A full tracklist is expected to be released in the coming weeks. “Creed II” premieres Nov. 21.
