Chance The Rapper, Brockhampton, Lil Uzi Vert, & More Have New Songs On Space Jam: A New Legacy Soundtrack
The soundtrack to the original Space Jam was quite a big deal, spawning two top 10 Hot 100 hits with R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” and Seal’s Steve Miller cover “Fly Like An Eagle,” and featuring contributions from D’Angelo, Monica, Quad City DJs, and more. The soundtrack to the sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy aims to have a similar impact. “We knew that with the soundtrack for this one, that whole idea of making a soundtrack for this generation, but still having that melting pot, was something we all really wanted,” Spencer Beighley, head of film at star LeBron James’ production company SpringHill, said in a feature for Billboard.
So the soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy is filled with big names. There’s Chance The Rapper with a song called “See Me Fly” that features John Legend and Symba; Legend has his own track, “Crowd Go Crazy.” There’s a new track from Brockhampton called “MVP.” Lil Uzi Vert has a rework on Technotronic’s “Pump Up The Jam.” There’s new tracks from 24kGoldn, Jonas Brothers, Lil Tecca and Aminé, Cordae and DUCKWRTH, Big Freedia, Joyner Lucas, Leon Bridges. Saweetie has a track featuring Kash Doll and Salt-N-Pepa. Salt-N-Pepa’s appearance on that makes them the only artist to appear on both the original Space Jam soundtrack and the one for the remake, which is fun.
