Best Movie Soundtracks of 2018
Each year, Hollywood presents music lovers from all over the world with emotional soundtracks from Pixar, enthralling scores featured in Star Wars, and old-but-gold-laden movie albums. So, in 2018, we’ve surely gotten all of those and even a lot more. This year, film directors also collaborated with the most prominent producers available in the music industry, such as Kendrick Lamar and Jack Antonoff. And precisely the results of those outstanding collabs gifted us with the true treasures like Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s starlit anthem “All the Stars” from Black Panther as well as Troye Sivan’s tune of melancholy vibe “Strawberries and Cigarettes” from the movie Love, Simon.
So today https://meetwife.com/ organized the finest soundtracks that the year 2018 came up with (so far!) for your ultimate listening pleasure.
1. Black Panther
Alright, so Black Panther is undoubtedly the movie of the year, and perhaps of the decade or even century. With that fact, besides its absolutely amazing cast, wonderful set design, and engrossing story, it also has a powerful soundtrack, curated by Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper and producer Kendrick Lamar. And in case if you thought the movie cast was stacked, take a look at the film’s music album, which includes The Weeknd, Jorja Smith, Khalid, SZA, James Blake, Future, and Vince Staples.
Best track: “Pray For Me” by The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar
2. Deadpool 2
Deadpool is best known for the snark of his, so the filmmakers decided to put a few classic hits in, such as “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton exactly by layering them wittily over intense fight scenes in the movie. Deadpool Chapter 2 also brought us pop culture’s very best moment of this year along with Celine Dion’s “Ashes.” So, if you haven’t already checked out absolutely hilarious visuals to Dion’s newest hit, it features the foul-mouthed merc doing an entertaining interpretive dance.
Best track: “Welcome To The Party” by Diplo, French Montana, Lil Pump & Zhavia
3. Ocean’s 8
From iconic Amy Winehouse’s song “Me and Mr. Jones” to “Bossy” by Kelis, Ocean’s 8 has lots of fun with its music selection, presenting a collection speckled with modern bops. After all, we’re not that much disappointed that Rihanna did not create her own song(s) for the movie. Or giving the fact that James Corden had not bursted out into Carpool Karaoke in his role as an insurance investigator.
Best track: “Gold On The Ceiling” by The Black Keys
Perhaps even more massive than the actual movie was its soundtrack, produced by true soul legend Curtis Mayfield. Finally, the responsibility of redesigning the classic OST fell upon the most hyped rapper of 2017-18 Future, who fashioned 13 wonderful songs for the project. The tunes offer quite a fresh, modern take, with a few standout tracks, such as Khalid and H.E.R.’s “This Way” in addition to Future and PARTYNEXTDOOR’s guitar-assisted “No Shame.” The OST is pretty much stacked itself, enlisting a number of other artists like 21 Savage, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, and Miguel.
Best track: “Show My Chain Some Love” by Future & Young Thug
5. Love, Simon
For a typical teen romantic comedy, it is pretty natural that the official soundtrack is as sweet as the movie. Produced by Jack Antonoff, the tracklist is full of contemporary sounds from bands and musicians like The 1975, Khalid Bleachers, and, of course, Troye Sivan. The film’s music producer Jack Antonoff wrote most of the tracks for the film, including the iconic “Alfie’s Song.”
