Music has always been a critical part of setting the tone of every Hollywood blockbuster and superhero flicks are no exception. Recent years have seen popular artists including Grandson, Eminem, and Megan Thee Stallion tackling original tracks for Marvel and DC's biggest theatrical outings.

Despite proving to be one of the most controversial comic book movies in history, Venom remains widely discussed to this day as it maintains a strong cult following. After three years and numerous delays, Sony is finally set to release the highly-anticipated sequel Let There Be Carnage in the coming days.

Back in 2018, rapper Eminem released an original song to accompany Venom which saw great popularity and continues to be played to this day. With the sequel a matter of days away, the popular rap artist has offered a sneak peek at a new song to accompany the flick.

Eminem Returns for the Venom Sequel

Rapper Eminem officially revealed on Twitter he will feature on a song by singer Skylar Grey for Venom: Let There Be Carnage alongside fellow artists Mozzy and Polo G.

The announcement video was accompanied by a brief snippet from the song which can be viewed below:

Eminem previously wrote the song “Venom” to appear within the first movie, a track that remains popular even three years after its initial release.

Will Eminem's Hit Help the Venom Sequel?

Having collaborated with Eminem on an original track for Venom in 2018, it's no surprise to see the artist returning with another hit for the sequel. Interestingly, the Oscar-winning rapper will be taking a step back this time, serving as a feature on the song alongside Polo G and Mozzy with singer Skylar Grey taking the lead.

Grey is no stranger to collaborating with Eminem, despite having drastically different musical styles, the two have featured on each other's singles and albums a total of nine times in the past. Meanwhile, Mozzy and Polo G have never worked with either of the other artists in the past but have collaborated with each other for many rap hits.

The collaboration of four popular and highly regarded artists ought to offer a significant marketing push to Venom: Let There Be Carnage as the song is sure to attract great popularity across streaming platforms.

With Sony having recently collaborated with Epic Games on Venom and Carnage skins for Fortnite, it's safe to say the studio is pulling out all the stops to ensure the sequel lives up to the box office success of the original blockbuster.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage hits U.S. theaters on Friday, October 1, 2021. Typically, most major artists release new music on Fridays, meaning it's likely Eminem's latest hit will hit streaming platforms on the same day.
