OVO Sound has posted the track listing for the Top Boy soundtrack set to drop this Friday, Sept. 13. It’s the same day that Season 3 of the popular show premieres on Netflix.
As was previously reported, Drake’s obsession with the show lead him to taking on the role of Executive Producer for the latest campaign. He brought in writers Ronan Bennett to Daniel West write the latest season, and partnered with Netflix to present it.
Along with some of the UK’s top artists, the Top Boy soundtrack will include Baka Not Nice’s “My Town” (featuring Giggs) and Drake’s “Behind Barz” freestyle. Most Drake fans have already heard “Behind Barz” so there could be some disappointment there. Additionally, some Drake fans have been under the impression that the 6ix God will be making an appearance in the actual show, but the official cast list suggests that won’t be the case.
Either way, as a driving force behind the show getting renewed, Top Boy fans already have plenty to thank Drake for.
The Top Boy soundtrack will also feature some tunes by artists with actual roles in the show. For example, rapper Kane Robinson, a main character when the series last aired in 2011, reprises his role as Sully.
Little Simz is featured on the song “Venom,” and will also play the role of Shelly.
London rapper and singer, Dave, who is featured twice on the soundtrack, will appear in one episode as a character named Moodie.
Other artists featured on the project include AJ Tracey, Nafe Smallz, Headie One, Popcaan, M Huncho, Ghetts, and more.
Check back on Sept. 13 for the Top Boy soundtrack.
