The soundtrack for Amazing Spider-Man 2 is turning out to be just as star-studded as the movie itself.
The first single from the album, “It’s On Again,”; features four of the hottest names in music: Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, and Hans Zimmer. Although only Keys and Lamar contribute vocals, all four appear in the new music video, which debuted this morning and has already amassed 50,000 hits. Williams appears as a computer hacker while Zimmer appears as an orchestra conductor.
“I had an idea, and he lifted it to new heights,”; Williams said of his collaboration with Zimmer in Rolling Stone. “I had a little dirt-hill idea, and he’s turned it into a mountain. Alicia is singing and she did some co-writing on it too, and with Kendrick, it just feels like we might have our own little Mt. Rushmore here.”
Williams and Zimmer previously collaborated on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, which yielded the enormously popular “Happy.”;
