The 2018 American sports drama film Creed II, a sequel to Creed (2015) and the eighth installment in the Rocky film series, was accompanied by two soundtrack albums. Creed II: The Album, featuring original songs produced by Mike Will Made-It, and Creed II: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring an original score composed by Ludwig Göransson, were both released on November 16, 2018.

Background[edit]

In March 2018, it was announced that Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson would score Creed II; the movie marks the first feature-length film collaboration between Göransson and director Steven Caple Jr..[1] In October it was reported that Mike Will Made-It will serve as the executive producer for the soundtrack to the film.[2][3]

Vince DiCola, composer of Rocky IV was originally slated to return, however he debunked this in a Facebook post stating “I would have loved to return, however that’s just how Hollywood works. We don’t always get what we want.”

The soundtrack features songs that are heard in the film as well as others that are inspired by it,[4]

Release[edit]

Mike Will Made It released the first single from the album, "Kill 'Em with Success", on November 5, 2018, in which he collaborated with fellow artists artist ScHoolboy, 2 Chainz and Eearz, shortly after a new trailer for the film was released.[5] A second single, "The Mantra", is a collaboration with Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar and was released on November 14, 2018.[6] On November 6, 2018 via Instagram, Mike Will announced the album listening party hosted by him.[7] In a statement about the soundtrack, Mike Will said:

There was a time where movie soundtracks had people just as excited as an artist’s album, and that’s the feeling I was going for when creating this project alongside Ludwig Göransson and Fam Rothstein. After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back......[8]
