Just last week, the anticipated Coming 2 America comedy starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall has officially premiered last week on Amazon Prime Video. With the film’s arrival also comes the official soundtrack. Prior to the official release, we’ve been able to enjoy cuts like “I’m A King” by Bobby Sessions and Megan Thee Stallion and “Black and White” by Nasty C and Ari Lennox. The most recent single was YG and Big Sean’s “Go Big” where the rappers take turns showing out for the flexing portion of the soundtrack:
Go big, know me, eight figures, go get, I like views of ocean, free time don’t make no sense/ Buyin’ the foreign with Pesos, I’m too real can’t play roles, just payrolls, Jeff Bezos, and my bitch CO-CEO/ That’s Baygos, yeah, never did anything that ain’t require a plan/ Try to humble myself and pretend I’m not the man, really, I am. And some people get ahead of theyselves and start celebratin’ for they win/ I am not one of them, hopin’ it work out, I rather go put the work in/ Understand before we made it dawg, we had to make it through
The original Coming to America soundtrack boasted songs by The Cover Girls, Chico DeBarge, Mel & Kim, Sister Sledge and many more. The System’s title track, “Coming to America,” co-written by Nile Rodgers, peaked at No. 91 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1988. While names like Teyana Taylor, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Wesley Snipes and more join the cast this time around, there are several people who reprised their roles such as James Earl Jones (King Jaffe Joffer), Shari Headley (Queen Lisa), John Amos (Cleo McDowell) and Louie Anderson (Maurice).
