Metro Boomin recently unveiled his highly-anticipated soundtrack to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. First-week sales numbers prove that fans couldn’t wait to get listening to the LP. The project has sold 60,363 copies in its first week, with 3,079 coming from pure sales, putting him at #7 on the charts. The soundtrack features several high-profile features like 21 Savage, A$ap Rocky, Nas, Lil Wayne, and more.
He also made a cameo appearance in the new film, which he told Variety was “fun” for him earlier this month. “It was another door to open,” he told the outlet, “to peek through.” Metro Boomin explained, “Whether there is some more opportunities to do things like this in the future, it just makes a light bulb go. But it wasn’t difficult to integrate.” He also revealed that the cameo “was just so surreal,” claiming that he’s a “lifelong Marvel and Spider-Man fan.”
Metro Boomin Teases New Track With Future
Metro Boomin also just teased a new track he has on the way with one of his soundtrack collaborators, Future. Though he claims that the song is still in the works, fans at a recent performance had the honor of hearing it live.
Earlier this month, he revealed that a collaborative album with Future would be his next project. “So now that the soundtrack is out… when’s the album with Future,” a Twitter user asked the producer. He told the fan that the collab would be “Next up.” Metro Boomin first teased the collab in March in his cover story for FLAUNT magazine. He discussed performing alongside the rapper during his One Big Party tour stop in Atlanta. “Oh, that was fire,” he said of the performance. He later told the outlet that a collaborative album between the two of them would “definitely,” come out at some point this year. “I would bet on it,” he shared, “I would definitely bet on it.”
