Wiz Khalifa Samples Stranger Things Theme for New Song, Listen Here

Rapper Wiz Khalifa has released a new track that samples the theme song from Netflix’s show Stranger Things–and it works better than you might have thought.

The song is called “Stranger Things,” and it was produced by E. Dan, Big Jerm, and Sayez. J.R. Donato is featured on the track (via EW). The art for the song is also pretty cool, riffing on Stranger Things by showcasing Khalifa and Donato riding bikes with a monster looming in front of them.

“It’s like I’m talking to a stranger, A stranger, a stranger, a stranger/ Now everybody getting stranger, They’re stranger, they’re stranger, they’re stranger / I think I’m in danger,” Khalifa sings.

The Stranger Things theme song was composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. It has kind of an electronic, creepy vibe to it, which fits the show well. You can listen to the theme song for 5 hours here.

In other news about Stranger Things and rapping, 12-year-old star Millie Bobby Brown is a seriously talented singer, as she demonstrated in this killer take on a Nicki Minaj rap.

Stranger Things Season 1 debuted in July and was well-received by critics and also apparently a ratings darling. Season 2 is coming in 2017 and it will be “darker and weirder.”
