Due out November 21 and directed by Steven Caple Jr., Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. In creating Creed II: The Album, Mike WiLL collaborated directly with Jordan and Caple Jr., as well as with composer Ludwig Göransson and music supervisors Fam Rothstein and Jen Malone.
“There was a time where movie soundtracks had people just as excited as am artist’s album, and that’s the feeling I was going for when creating this project,” says Mike WiLL. “After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back.”
The founder of Ear Drummer Records, Mike WiLL is the mastermind behind such massive hits as Beyoncé’s “Formation,” Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy Award-winning and seven-times-platinum “HUMBLE.,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” which spent seven weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
