Metro Boomin x A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie x Swae Lee x Nav – Calling (Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse)

The breakout song for the first movie was “Sunflowers” by Post Malone and Swae Lee, and it seems we have a winner for this sequel soundtrack. “Calling” is just the type of song to make you reflective, and in a way, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse is a reflective movie. It’s basically about the heights we’re willing to go to protect the ones we care about, even if turns friends into enemies.

Just to save you, I’d give all of me (All of me, yeah) / I can hear you screamin’ out, callin’ me (Callin’ me) / It’s my fault, made you fall for me (Fall) / So, to save you, I’d give my all (My all),” the song’s chorus is enough to make one emotional, without the help of the accompanying animated video.

In the video, we see our latest Brooklyn-based friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Miles Morales, get a visit from an old friend, Gwen Stacy. If you’ve watched the first movie, your eyes would probably be shining with memories of Morales’ disastrous meeting with Gwen Stacy, before either of them even knew they were spider people. Spoiler Alert: Gwen lost a lot of hair in their awkward first meeting. But they obviously put this behind them before the first movie’s ending credits rolled in.

Throughout the video, we see Miles trail after Gwen, who is dealing with some emotional problems of her own. The video also exposes us to the idea that Miles and Gwen are emotionally attracted to each other. There literally couldn’t have been a better video for this song than the one it currently has, even though it’s more of a compilation of moments from the movie.

Opening to massive box office numbers – even for an animated superhero film – people are beginning to say that Spider-Verse‘s Miles Morales might just be the best Spider-Man of all.

“Calling” is one of 13 songs featured as part of the soundtrack created by Metro Boomin and drawing inspiration from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. It features some of the biggest names in melodic rap and is produced by Metro Boomin, Chris Townsend, and Johan Lennox.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse premiered at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles, California on May 30, 2023, and was released in the United States on June 2. Originally slated for an April 2022 release, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A third movie and a female-centric spinoff are currently in the works.
