Well, well, well, look who’s back at it again with another killer soundtrack. Metro Boomin has done it once more with Spider-man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack. This album is a must-listen not only for fans of the Spider-Man franchise but for lovers of good music.
Let’s start with Coi Leray’s “Self Love.” The track is a standout on the album with its addictive hook, numb vocals, and beat that will make any listener move. The lyrics are relatable as they talk about making major moves in your life for someone you love. Coi Leray has proved herself to be a force to be reckoned with in the genre of hip-hop.
Moving on to “Annihilate,” this track is perfect for those who need a little boost of confidence. Swae Lee’s high-pitched vocals add excitement to the already action-packed beat and assertive lyrics from Lil Wayne and Offset make the track even more substantial. I can already see myself blasting this in my car as I head out to conquer the day.
Now, let’s get into some more emotion with “Calling.” This track is all about love – and who doesn’t need a little love in their life? Swae Lee keeps things gentle with his angelic hook, Uzi’s verse isn’t amazing, but it still manages to add to the song, and A Boogie’s dynamic verse keeps the energy alive. “Home” is another standout track with Don Toliver’s striking verse, his voice is captivating as he begs to go home. The production complements his vocals perfectly, creating a great song that will have you hitting the repeat button. Lil Uzi Vert’s verse may be forgettable, but it does not take away from the overall beauty of the track.
Lastly, we have “Nonviolent Communication” featuring James Blake, A$AP Rocky, and 21 Savage. This song is nothing short of magical. James Blake’s hauntingly beautiful vocals set the stage for A$AP Rocky and 21 Savage to take a more tender approach. It’s a beautiful and unexpected collaboration that I hope to see more of in the future.
Overall, Metro Boomin has delivered yet another fantastic soundtrack. The production and lyrics are on point, and the collaborations are impressive. This soundtrack is a joy to listen to, and I can’t wait to hear more from this talented producer. Lastly, let’s not forget Spider-man: Across the Spider-Verse film, it was an amazing movie with such beautiful animation and storytelling with intense, emotional, and engaging moments. The synergy between the movie and the soundtrack is undeniable, making this album even more special. Don’t sleep on this soundtrack, it’s a masterpiece.
