  1. Creed’s soundtrack was full of hip hop and R&B songs from well known artists and musicians, as well as some in the voice of a cast member.

Ryan Coogler’s Creed served as both a spin-off and sequel in theRocky movie series, introducing a new boxing star in Adonis “Donnie” Johnson (played by Michael B. Jordan), Apollo Creed’s son, and following his journey into the world of professional boxing with Rocky Balboa himself as his trainer.

Overview[edit]

Creed was a big success not only at the box office but also among viewers and critics, who mostly praised Coogler’s direction and how it stayed true to its predecessors while forging its own path. But aside from the performances and the story, there’s another detail that shouldn’t be overlooked: the soundtrack, which has original songs performed by big names in the music industry and the involvement of one cast member, who worked closely with composer Ludwig Göransson to write some of the songs. SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY. Related: What To Expect From Creed 3. The soundtrack of Creed marked the second collaboration between Göransson and Coogler after working together in Fruitvale Station, so the composer knew exactly what was Coogler wanted for the film. Coogler shared that they were influenced by the culture of the 1970s and the musical legacy of the franchise, namely “Eye of the Tiger”, so they worked on various original songs recorded by artists like Childish Gambino, Meek Mill, and Jhené Aiko.

The soundtrack also includes three songs performed by Tessa Thompson, who wrote them alongside Göransson. Here’s the full list of songs on the Creed soundtrack:. “Last Breath” by Future. “Check” by Meek Mill. “Intolerant” by White Dave. “The Fire” by The Roots, ft. “Grip” by Tessa Thompson. “Lord Knows” by Meek Mill, ft. “Don’t Waste My Time”, by Krept & Konan. “Let You Know” by White Dave, ft.

Although most tracks were made for Creed, it includes some previously released songs from different genres, like Nas’ “Bridging the Gap” and Tupac’s “Hail Mary”, the latter being Adonis’ entrance music during his final match. Coogler is one of those directors who pays attention to every detail, including the songs, using them most of the time in sync with editing, elevating the viewer’s experience (just like he did in Black Panther).
