1996’s Space Jam was not only iconic for featuring The Michael Jordan in his prime, but also its stellar soundtrack. With hits like “I Believe I can Fly” and “Fly Like an Eagle” are as memorable as the movie itself.
Now the reboot of the film is hitting screens soon, and the soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy looks to recreate the same magic. Warner Bros is pulling out all the stops for this one enlisting some of the biggest stars to collaborate.
The 16-track album boasts brand new music and mega-collaborations, including 24kGoldn’s “Control The World” feat. Lil Wayne. Chance the Rapper’s “See Me Fly” feat. John Legend & Symba. Saweetie’s “Hoops” feat. Salt-N-Pepa & Kash Doll. Lil Tecca & Aminé’s “Gametime,” Cordae & DUCKWRTH’s “Settle The Score”
In addition, it also features tracks from Lil Uzi Vert, John Legend, The Jonas Brothers, and BROCKHAMPTON.
Whoever was behind this reboot understood how important the original was for many of us growing up. It is good to see that they are taking no shortcuts in making sure this movie is a slam dunk.
