When both music and movie fans can rejoice, those moments can make for some of the best in a year for pop culture. While many teased and spoke about this crossover, its confirmation is setting those high expectations up. Dreamville just announced their soundtrack for Creed III, the next franchise installment. Moreover, the film is directed by and starring Michael B. Jordan, who previously teased the team-up. “I’m probably gonna get in trouble,” he expressed at ComplexCon. “Dreamville is executive producing this album.” Now, after that insider scoop, the dominant hip-hop label confirmed their big moment.
While Jordan’s likely over the moon about the crossover, it didn’t stop acting and directing at the same time to be difficult for him. “It’s torture, but at the same time, it’s so much fun,” he told Collider in an interview. “It was the challenge of accomplishing it all, with the multitasking nature of developing the story, trying to stay in shape, and giving all the departments what they individually needed, to go do their job.” However, maybe one of the many hats he wore was also making sure this soundtrack felt right. While no one from either camp has yet commented on it at length, some of Dreamville’s camp hyped up its Instagram reveal in its comments. For example, Bas commented a punching emoji, while Morray posted two fire emojis.
Still, the soundtrack will likely fit well when paired with the on-and-off-screen themes of perseverance and dedication. “It’s really hard to put into words,” the director and actor shared. “Every day was a struggle, but honestly, it was the team of people that I had around me that got me through it. You’ve really gotta surround yourself with the right help, so that you can focus on the things you need to focus on. Sometimes that’s doing two things at one time, or three things at one time. It’s just part of the job.
“Once you step behind the camera,” he continued, “the undertaking that it is, from the outside looking in, it’s tough.” However, through that hard work and passion, we’re probably getting something very special soon from these creatives.
