Midnight | Tessa Thompson x Gunna
With the way soundtracks have been sounding lately, I was anticipating the release of the Creed II: The Album soundtrack and how it would sound. Though there were at least 2 singles released ahead of the album, those singles weren’t really doing much for me. I got into the album and a lot of the songs were just okay to me, until I got to this song, which happened to be close to the end of the album. I was immediately intrigued because I had never heard actress Tessa Thompson sing or was even aware that she as known as a singer. Then my intrigue increased when I saw that it was a collab with Gunna. The mellow tone of the track had me super curious on how Gunna was going to approach the song. I was pleasantly surprised with his switch up and how he meshed perfectly with the production of the song. Gunna is definitely on a roll lately (he also has an interesting collab with Mariah Carey on her new album). I’m feeling this song, it’s definitely one of the highlights from the album and it’s already been added to one of my mood music playlists.
