Artist Partner Group, Atlantic Records and Universal Pictures have announced the release of “THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS: THE ALBUM,” the musical companion to the much-anticipated Universal Pictures film of the same name.
The album arrives on Friday, April 14, as the ultimate companion to Universal’s THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, which opens in theatres everywhere the same day. The highly-anticipated album includes an impressive total of 13 exclusive new tracks curated specifically for THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, featuring unparalleled collaborations by Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa & PnB Rock; Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign & Sage The Gemini; and PnB Rock, Kodak Black & A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. Furthermore, Migos, Post Malone, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Kevin Gates and more round out the star-studded tracklist, contributing their own exclusive new songs for the dynamic album.
“THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS: THE ALBUM” marks the return of the hugely successful partnership between Atlantic Records and Universal Pictures. The two companies previously teamed up for “FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK,” which proved a chart-busting smash upon its 2015 release.
The soundtrack topped the SoundScan/Billboard 200 while hitting No. 1 on the iTunes Store’s overall “Top Albums” chart in 77 countries. The album is highlighted by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s emotional tribute “See You Again.” The song has officially entered the history books as one of the decade’s biggest singles, topping Billboard’s “Hot 100” for a stunning 12 weeks.
Currently certified 7x platinum by the RIAA, “See You Again,” is indeed a planetary phenomenon, with worldwide streams in excess of 5 billion. The song’s deeply touching companion video now exceeds 2.4 billion individual views – the first- ever hip-hop video to achieve the billion-view milestone and YouTube’s second most-viewed video of all time.
