Madden 23 Soundtrack Revealed

From Kendrick, Cordae, and K.R.I.T. to Snoop Dogg, Nas, and Cypress Hill, check out all the songs and artists that made it to the final cut of the EA Sports Madden 23 soundtrack.

It’s a hallowed tradition — the big reveal of the player ratings ahead of each annual release of EA SportsMadden video game franchise. But despite the players on the virtual field taking up most of the fanfare, plenty of gamers might spend more time juking and stiff-arming their way through menus for roster-tinkering, Franchise mode, and Ultimate Team — and that’s where a Madden game’s soundtrack earns its MVP votes

On Tuesday, EA revealed the full Madden 23 soundtrack for the first time ahead of the game’s official retail release on Aug. 19. There’s a lot to love here, but you can start by feasting your eyes on superstars like Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, and Tyler, the Creator, plus all-time legends like Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, and Nas.

This year’s soundtrack consists of 39 songs and accompanies an original score of 33 bespoke beats composed by rapper and producer Hit-Boy, whose music has appeared in past editions of Madden. As EA notes, Hit-Boy and Cordae created an all-new track, “CHECKMATE,” specifically for the game. The song is expected to premiere at the start of the 2022 NFL regular season in September.

Check out the full Madden 23 soundtrack below, including a Spotify playlist featuring all the songs and artists who made it into the game.
