Alicia Keys Discusses Kendrick Lamar Collaboration "It's On Again" For "Spider-Man 2" Soundtrack
Alicia Keys says, "There's a little bit of a super hero in all of us."
Alicia Keys collaborated with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Hans Zimmer for “It’s On Again,” a song that will be featured on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack.
"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.”
Zimmer scored the film, which is slated to arrive in theaters May 2, with the Magnificent Six: Pharrell, Incubus' Mike Einzinger, Johnny Marr, Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro.
"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."
