It's a huge weekend for both film and hip-hop lovers, thanks to the debut of Michael B. Jordan's Creed III. Not only does the California native star alongside Jonathan Majors in the new movie, but he also sat in the director's chair for the very first time, earning him plenty of praise for so much hard work. While he was busy bringing the visuals together, Dreamville came through with the soundtrack.

Ahead of Creed III's arrival, a handful of singles helped set the tone for audiences. We heard JID and Lute show out together on "Ma Boy," followed by Bas, Black Sherif, and Kel-P's work on "Blood, Sweat & Tears." When Friday (March 3) hit, so did the official Dreamville soundtrack on DSPs, providing fans with 18 new songs to accompany the highly anticipated movie.

Ari Sounds Angelic on "Greater"

An impressive roster of artists helped out with the tracklist, though one title that stands out to us above all others is Ari Lennox's "Greater." The R&B diva has the voice of an angel, and it sweetly croons on this song, as well as with Omen and OG DAYV on "Talk To Me." As she continues her tour across North America, listeners are more than happy to hear new music after all that she gave us in 2022.

Other noteworthy titles on the Creed III soundtrack include Big Sean and EST Gee's link up on "Anthem," J. Cole's triumphant work on "Adonis Interlude," and Kehlani's vulnerable title, "Shadows." REASON, Symba, Blxst, WESTSIDE BOOGIE, Arin Ray, SiR, and Syd also appear – not to mention Baby Rose, Morray, Tierra Whack, and Cozz's work.

Stream Ari Lennox's "Greater" from Dreamville's Creed III soundtrack on Spotify or Apple Music below. Afterward, tell us if you'll be checking out the film this weekend in the comments. Make sure to check back later for more release recommendations on our weekly playlist updates.

Quotable Lyrics:

What I'ma do? What I’ma say?
Only watchin' you, only ex fillin' your space
Hope you know I’m not lyin', never felt this way
Love the way you dance for me up on that stage
