Netflix and ESPN have teamed up with Spotify to deliver playlists centered around its latest docuseries, The Last Dance. The sets feature both music and podcasts selections, with the show’s music supervisor Rudy Chung partially handling the former and Spotify’s internal podcast curation team handling the latter.

The Last Dance official music playlist includes the Chicago Bulls‘ starting five theme song “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project, Drake and Future‘s “Jumpman” and “Victory” by Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes to name a few. Meanwhile, the podcast playlist, entitled After The Last Dance, features episodes focusing on Michael Jordan and his legacy.

“This has been a monumental team effort spearheaded by Jason Hehir and our editors,” Chung said in a statement. “In putting together the music our main concern was having the songs help tell the story for each episode, but we’re thrilled fans have responded to the soundtrack as a standalone. Hopefully younger fans will have gained a newfound appreciation of not only MJ but also the great music from his era.”

“It’s an honor to join forces with ESPN and Netflix to curate a playlist supporting this critically acclaimed series, currently serving as a sport’s fan’s favorite part of the week,” Carl Chery, Creative Director and Head of Urban Music at Spotify, added. “The list of songs, updated in tandem with the episodes, is an ode to the music that defined the 90s. From hip-hop to rock to R&B, the tracks were specially curated for streamers to discover and experience the culture of this influential time. We’re grateful to have a hand in bringing together music, entertainment, and sports fans during a time when we need community and a dose of sports content the most.”

Stream the official music playlist and After The Last Dance on Spotify. The Last Dance airs every Monday on ESPN in the U.S. and Netflix everywhere else.
