Music news

There are 15 days left until we return to the Panem universe in movie theaters. The Hunger Games: Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will hit the big screen next November 17 to witness the life of a young Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth), who faces his first games as a mentor to Lucy Gray (Rachel Zegler), the tribute of District 12.

Two weeks until we see a Capitol very different from the one we saw in the original saga with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark as protagonists: The tenth Hunger Games are still set in a world that survives the ravages of war, with Snow’s family completely ruined after the conflict. and with the victory of Corioulanus as the only alternative to maintain his status and carve out a future. A perfect cocktail that gives a story of betrayal, strategy and love where appearances are the order of the day.

In the last few hours, we have also been able to see a new trailer with a surprise that millions of fans around the world have celebrated: Olivia Rodrigo’s participation in her soundtrack with the song Can’t Catch Me Nowof which we have already been able to hear a preview and which It will hit the platforms this November 3rd.

This way, The singer leads the soundtrack of a film that, we are sure, will feature other international artists, as the original films did. A little over a decade ago, for example, Taylor Swift joined The Civil Wars to perform as a duet Safe & Soundwhich belonged to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games and for which he was able to take home the Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song. A story that could be repeated 10 years later with Olivia Rodrigo.

Less than 24 hours separate us from being able to listen to it in its entirety, but if one thing is clear to us, it is that it will become a real hit to add to the singer’s list of great songs. And you, do you want to listen to it?
