The producer, DJ, and record executive from St. Louis, Metro Boomin, created this new soundtrack album. After rising to prominence as one of hip hop’s most sought-after beatmakers in the middle of the previous decade, he went on to produce some of the best trap albums of the period, including Future’s third album D.S. 2 (Dirty Sprite 2), Gucci Mane’s 53rd mixtape Droptopwop, and the Offset/21 Savage collaboration tape Without Warning. However, it wasn’t until after Halloween 2018 that he released his solo debut, Not All Heroes Wear Capes, and he followed it up this winter with the outstanding sophomore effort Heroes & Villains, which widely and adequately gained him a more excellent reputation as a beatsmith. However, he is now being sought out to do the music for several upcoming films.

The Album Art features a very colorful image of a spider, that is the idea of the movie, anyway. Attention will be drawn to the colors on display as they hint at many things – whatever you want it to be, it becomes. It could mean the beauty in the diversity of the genres and style/techniques of the superstars on ‘song’ and on display in the album or the unification of the movie’s message of determination irrespective of gender or race.

Tracks And Features

With a little bit of an electronic trap flare to the instrumental and co-production from Mike Dean, Lil Wayne, Offset, and Swae Lee’s “Annihilate,” it opens the soundtrack. In contrast, A$AP Ferg’s “Am I Dreamin’?” leads with an idea of being in another universe. In Rocky & Roisee, the duo joyously acknowledges feeling defeated but continues to fight.

“Danger (Spider)” by JID & Offset has a more refined sound even though it was only produced by Honorable C.N.O.T.E. as they both demonstrate being made for this dangerous life before Future & Lil Uzi Vert’s “All the Way Live” incorporates some synths & hi-hats so they can both talk about it the type of time they are on.

Young Metro returns to the stage for the vibrantly laced “Hummingbird” with James Blake’s exquisitely sung vocals, realizing his lover might be all he needs. This song then transitions into “Calling” by ΠΔV & Swae Lee, giving you a sweet pop-rap anthem and demonstrating the Brown Boy’s continued growth as a performer, as he did on Demons Protected by Angels.

The song “Silk & Cologne” by Ei8ht & Offset is essentially a dancehall remix of Fortnite lobby music that Ei8ht previously created, however the song “Link Up” by Don Toliver & Wizkid is more melodic and draws from pop rap, pop-reggae, and afrobeats while referencing communicating ahead.

While Donny Womack & Uzi’s “Home” delves into more atmospheric trap territory and talks about being alone this evening, Coi Leray’s “Self Love” is one of his best tracks. It is a pop-infused, futuristic cut that details a man who doesn’t even love himself trying to love on her.

The song “Nonviolent Communication” by James Blake, Pretty Flacko & 21 Savage is a somber acoustic trap ballad caught up in the whip with Mary Jane Watson in his head, explaining their bond is misunderstood, while the penultimate track “Givin’ Up” by Don Toliver, 21 & 2 Chainz come together for one last Honorable C.N.O.T.E. banger psychedelically talking about refusing to lose.

The song “Nas Morales” closes the album, as Metro takes a break from the drums for Nas to wittily compares himself to Miles Morales.
