Young Thug at his side, Mike Will DJ’d from the center of a boxing ring set as Swae Lee — wearing boxing gloves around his neck and custom designer boxing trunks and robe — climbed up to join them with an opening chorus: “Pretty baby, I won’t lie/ I can get it right, one try/ Roll this up and let’s skydive/ I hope you not afraid of heights.”
The minimalist beat heated up and was joined by bass-like synths as Young Thug took the verses, while Swae’s smooth voice cut through for the refrain as he cruised around the ring.
At the performance’s conclusion, towels swarmed the stage as Swae Lee yelled, “Knockout!”
Produced by Mike Will Made-It, The Creed II soundtrack features hiphop-infused songs by artists including Ella Mai, Lil Wayne, Bon Iver, Kodak Black, J. Cole, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar and more. Creed II and its accompanying album are out now.
