For fans of ‘The Last Dance’, Spotify launched two playlists for the wildly popular new docuseries.
One is the official playlist called ‘The Last Dance’, which features music from and inspired by series, including hits such as LL Cool J’s “I’m Bad”, Prince’s “Partyman,” and The Alan Parson Project’s “Sirius”, known by many as the Chicago Bulls Theme Song, among others.
The other playlist, ‘After The Last Dance’, comprises of podcasts that discuss and dive further into the docuseries, giving streamers a closer look at the show, including episodes from The Bill Simmons Podcast, Jalen & Jacoby The Aftershow, Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, and more.
Carl Chery, a creative director and head of urban music at Spotify, shared:
“It’s an honor to join forces with ESPN and Netflix to curate a playlist supporting this critically acclaimed series, currently serving as a sport’s fan’s favorite cultural moment of the week. The list of songs, updated in tandem with the episodes, is an ode to the music that defined the 90s. From hip-hop to rock to R&B, the tracks were specially curated for streamers to discover and experience the culture of this influential time. We’re grateful to have a hand in bringing together music, entertainment, and sports fans during a time when we need community and a dose of sports content the most.”
Rudy Chung, music supervisor, also said:
“This has been a monumental team effort spearheaded by Jason Hehir and our editors. In putting together the music our main concern was having the songs help tell the story for each episode, but we’re thrilled fans have responded to the soundtrack as a standalone. Hopefully, younger fans will have gained a newfound appreciation of not only MJ but also the great music from his era.”
Released on April 19, ‘The Last Dance’ is a 10-part documentary series follows the story of Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls. You can now stream it on Netflix.
