To the delight of fans, who anticipated the release of Eddie Murphy’s Amazon Studios-backed film Coming 2 America for nearly two-years, the instant classic dropped a day early — resulting in the early release of the star-studded soundtrack.
Riding high on the hype of YG and Big Sean’s anthemic “Go Big” single, the 12-track Coming 2 America (Amazon Studios Motion Picture Soundtrack)arrived on Thursday (March 4), overflowing with superstar guest verses from rap acts such as Megan Thee Stallion, Public Enemy, Ice-T, Teyana Taylor and numerous others.
The project also paid homage to Hip Hop and R&B legends by featuring sparkling remixes of their classic records — including re-works of Salt-N-Peppa’s 1993 hit-single “What A Man” and an En Vogue-powered “We Are Family” mashup.
Additional album highlights include original material from Nigerian artists Davido and Tekno, who both hold down their own solo tracks on “Assurance” and “Waka Waka” respectively, while Burna Boy links with John Legend on the “Coming 2 America” outro.
