Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
T.I., Wiz Khalifa and others get pulses racing on all-star set
Pop music and cars have a long history, but the Furious 7 soundtrack goes one step further, seeking out 16 tracks thrilling enough for the biggest chase movie of the decade. T.I. and Young Thug zigzag over rave synths on “Off-Set,” bachata singer Prince Royce goes deep house on the coy “My Angel,” and French Montana flows over J. Balvin’s reggaeton hit “Ay Vamos.” Naturally, Lil Jon and DJ Snake’s “Turn Down for What” makes an appearance. The resulting LP doesn’t just move between hip-hop, EDM and Latin pop — it shows all three genres trading ideas. Environmentalists, rejoice: This one is plenty of fun even if no one’s burning gas.
