We’ve been waiting over 24 years since Space Jam was released featuring goat Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes. It brings us all a warm feeling to have the sequel with Lebron James, as we know and love the joy it brought us when we were children and teenagers. In addition to delivering memorable moments for the newer generation of viewers, the soundtrack contributed greatly to the success of the movie. It’s the flame emoji, if it were considered an emoji; it would definitely meet your expectations. Featuring a star-studded soundtrack, Space Jam: A New Legacy premieres today.
In addition to going platinum six times, Space Jam’s soundtrack featured songs like “Fly Like an Eagle,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” and artists like Quad City DJ’s, D’Angelo and Monica. Space Jam: A New Legacy’s soundtrack lineup is here, and it does a good job of giving the Soundtrack of Space Jam a run for its money.
It is a type of legacy-building project. There is so much reverence for Space Jam among young and old alike. With this track, the next generation will have access to the same experience,” 24kGoldn told Rolling Stone about his track with Lil Wayne. Along with 24kGold and Weezy, Salt-N-Pepa will also appear on the soundtrack, as it appears on both the 1996 and 2021 soundtracks.
Contributions to the 16-track album include G-Eazy, SZA, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Kirk Franklin, 24kGoldn, Saint JHN, John Legend, Chance The Rapper, White Dave Symba, Damian Lillard (aka Dame D.O.L.L.A.), P-Lo, and Saweetie.
