Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is less than two months away, waaaaah?!
The film’s tie-ins are starting to drop, and at last we have the theme song for Mile Morales’ first theatrical outing. How is this collab between Post Malone and Swae Lee hold up? Let’s find out….
This track takes the form of a love song, which is intriguing for a movie about a bunch of Spider-Men and Women and Hams teaming up. The subject of the song is referred to as sunflower numerous times by Swae and Post:
But honestly? This song just leaves me feeling empty. It’s sweet and saccharine without an emotional punch to make it memorable. Only the second verse gives us some clues as to the meaning of the song:
So, I mean, yeah. “Sunflower” is fine. It’s catchy enough. It doesn’t have a lot of staying power, but at least Post Malone doesn’t rhyme “Sunflower” with “hourrrrrrrrrrrr,” so it’s got that going for it 🙃
You can listen to “Sunflower” on Spotify bellow.
