Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell have linked up with Mike WiLL Made-It and dropped a new single, “The Mantra.” The track is set to appear on the soundtrack to Creed II — listen via Apple Music below.

Mike WiLL Made-It is serving as executive producer on the film’s soundtrack, with other artists such as Bon Iver, Vince Staples, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Nas, and others, set to appear.

A follow-up to 2015’s Creed, the movie — which drops in theaters nationwide next week — sees Michael B. Jordan return as light heavyweight contender, Adonis  “Creed” Johnson. Under the tutelage of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), Creed finds himself facing off against Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) — the son of Ivan Drago (aka Rocky’s opponent in Rocky IV).
