“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero film, which released on Sept. 3. Along with that came the movie’s soundtrack the same day, executively produced by 88rising, the label who uplifts Asian R&B and hip-hop artists like Rich Brian and Joji. Included in the project was the charming sixth song “Fire In The Sky” by Anderson .Paak.
“Fire In The Sky” clocks in at a little under three and a half minutes, and is a peaceful love song where Paak shows off his smooth, easily discernible singing voice. Over the instrumental from the band comprised of a piano player, guitarist, drummer and bassist, .Paak glides with cute predictions about a potential significant other.
All I wanted was just to lock down the love of my life
Lights in, simple, like a midnight drive
Watchin’ fireworks in the sky
I’m calling it now, I’m calling it now, I’m calling it now
You’ll find love with me somehow, yeah, somehow“Fire In The Sky” — Anderson .Paak
The rest of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album boasts songs from Rich Brian like the promotional singles “Lazy Susan” with 21 Savage as well as “Run It” with Rick Ross produced by DJ Snake. Other notable appearances include EARTHGANG on “Act Up,” Guapdad 4000 on “Foolish,” Jhené Aiko and Swae Lee on “In the Dark” and “Clocked Out!” with rising singer AUDREY NUNA.
“Fire In The Sky” comes in the midst of fans craving an album from Silk Sonic, the duo of Anderson .Paak and pop legend Bruno Mars which formed in 2020 and has dropped three massive singles. They have been teasing an LP for months but have still not announced a cover art, tracklist or release date. Until that day comes, enjoy Anderson .Paak’s new track and the rest of the soundtrack for “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” below, and check out the movie out now in theaters.
