Casanova returns to pack a punch with the brazen “Forged In Steel” on Tuesday (May 28). The brash record is slated to provide the soundtrack to Dazn’s upcoming 40 Days: Joshua-Ruiz docuseries, which counts Meek Mill and Roc Nation as executive producers.
“Boxing and music are very similar. They both give you a voice to express the anger you feel, without getting in trouble for it,” Casanova explains to Billboard of the record’s easy appeal to him. “I hope that doesn’t go over y’all heads!”
The inspirational sonic is laid down by Jingle Jared, who is no stranger to collaborating with hip-hop artists for projects landing in the sports realm. “Professional sports is a big passion point when it comes to Jingle Punks,” says the Sports Emmy Award nominee. “Casanova is one of the realest artists out there at the moment, so I was immediately excited to collaborate.”
The “Forged In Steel” release date — May 28 — also marks the 37th anniversary since the release of Rocky III.
40 Days will feature an inside look at the upcoming heavyweight bout between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr. It’s set for a June release.
