Combining his passion for soccer and music, fútbol superstar Neymar Jr. created an epic mixtape in partnership with Nike.  

Billed as "a soundtrack for football," the Neymar-approved songs on the mixtape feature up-and-coming artists from around the world including Swoosh God, Yung Beef and Ba$$ilones. 

Nike tapped artist Ba$$ilones, director Ernest Desumbila and international DJ Flavio Rodríguez for the production of the mixtape, and a short music video where the Barcelona-forward shows off his soccer and dancing skills. 

It's not the first time the 25-year-old Brazilian athlete has shown his interest in the music world -- before, he's jumped onstage with music stars such as Michel Teló, featured on music videos, and even joked about dropping a debut single last year. 

Below, watch the music video featuring Neymar Jr. and freestyle dancers from the Tribu Urbana Center School in Badalona (north east of Barcelona), Spain, and listen to his 17-track mixtape.
