The multi-platinum producer began unveiling his collaborators in a similar fashion to that of his Heroes & Villains rollout last year, which involved him posting illustrated comic book caricatures of his guests.
For the Spider-Verse rollout, each guest was fittingly drawn to include their own Spider-Man costume, and over the course of this past week, Metro revealed the album will feature a plethora of talent.
In addition to Future, Uzi and J.I.D, fans can expect appearances from Nas, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, 21 Savage, Offset, 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Nav, Don Toliver, Coi Leray, Wizkid, James Blake and more.
Serving as the sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the latest animated film continues the story of Miles Morales, the half-Black, half-Latino teenager who’s trying to serve his city as the famous web-slinger.
All eyes will be on the Boominati boss to see if the project can match the hype of its predecessor. The first Spider-Verse soundtrack spawned the blockbuster single “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee, which was certified diamond in 2021 and became the jointhighest-certified single in RIAA history last November.
As for Metro’s previous effort, Heroes & Villainsdebuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 185,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. Metro fended off competition from Taylor Swift’s Midnights for the top spot, out-selling the pop juggernaut by over 40,000 units.
