Marshmello Snags Production Credit on “Space Jam 2” Song by 24kGoldn and Lil Wayne

The Toon Squad are making a resounding comeback as Space Jam: A New Legacy, a sequel 25 years in the making, hits theaters this weekend. 

The movie's star-studded soundtrack hit streaming services early, with artists such as John Legend, LIL UZI VERT, Big Freedia, SAINt JHN all contributing to the effort.

The album also includes a stealthy production credit for Marshmello. The masked hitmaker has kept his foot on the gas after the release of his recent album Shockwave, lending his smooth production stylings to 24kGoldn's "Control The World" featuring Lil Wayne.

Mello keeps it clean with a punchy hip-hop production that keeps melody to a minimum. Backed by the simple strum of an acoustic guitar, the track positions the quick-witted verses of its vocalists as its center focus. Omer Fedi, Danny Couture, and Blake Slatkin also snagged a credit on the track, which you can check out below.
