Alicia Keys collaborated with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Hans Zimmer for the song “It’s On Again” which will be featured on the 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,” said Keys in a statement when the track was announced. “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.” Added Williams, “Hans has created an iconic score theme and it was exciting to collaborate with him again on this song. When I was making the song, I knew Alicia and Kendrick had to be on it. They take the song to a whole new level.”
“It’s On Again” will be available on iTunes on April 1, while the entire “Amazing Spider-Man 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” is set for an April 22 release.
