Jordan Peele Talks About ‘Us’ Soundtrack and Music in Film in Spotify’s First-Ever Movie Takeover (EXCLUSIVE)

Jordan Peele discusses the key role music plays in his new horror film “Us” — as well as the use of music in movie at large — in the first movie-sponsored takeover on Spotify.

Beginning Monday, March 18, the Oscar-winning director-producer-writer will take over Spotify’s TV Movies hub in a playlist that runs one hour and 50 minutes. In the series, he talks about how he used music for “Us,” along with other surprising uses of music in film. The “Us” soundtrack includes Luniz’s “I Got 5 on It,” Janelle Monáe’s “I Like That,” Koffee’s “Toast,” Minnie Riperton’s “Les Fleur,” and the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations,” in addition to the score by Michael Abels (who also scored Peele’s “Get Out”).

Peele’s Spotify takeover is sponsored by “Us” distributor Universal Pictures. The deal marks the first time a single film is taking over one of Spotify’s hubs.

In addition, under the pact “Us” star Winston Duke has curated Spotify fan-favorite playlist Black Boy Joy, with tracks including “Tribe” by Bas featuring J. Cole and Chief Obi’s “Carry Go” featuring Olimade.

The playlists are available to both Spotify Premium and free users. Peele’s takeover on the music-streaming service will continue through the theatrical release of “Us,” hitting theaters on Friday, March 22.
