Beyond the above songs, Madden 23‘s soundtrack will also feature a selection of tracks from artists including Joey Bada$$, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Nas.

A Spotify playlist for the game’s soundtrack will be available from August 19, and EA has shared that more music will be released through the NFL and holiday season.

Several of the artists appearing on Madden 23‘s soundtrack are arriving on the back of a very successful year. Last month, we named Cordae’s ‘From A Birds Eye View’ and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ as two of the best albums of 2022 so far.

Two featured artists – Killer Mike and Joey Bada$$ – also collaborated on Danger Mouse & Black Thought’s album ‘Cheat Codes’, which launched last week.
