While speaking to Billboard, singer Alicia Keys detailed an upcoming collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and Hans Zimmer. The collab is for a song on the “Spider Man 2” soundtrack called “It’s On Again“.
“I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer,” Keys said, according to Billboard. “This is the next chapter in the Spider-Man legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story — and most importantly — the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.”
Hans Zimmer, who scored the whole film, also spoke on the process of developing the music for Spider-Man 2.
“When we came together to form a band to create the music of this film, we did the opposite of what composers usually do — we wrote songs, and from the songs came the themes,” Zimmer says. “We embraced a Rock N Roll ethos on this movie, and it paid off.”
