It’s a wrap for Season 2 of Issa Rae’s Insecure but the show’s soundtrack, which is equally as good, will continue to feed our addiction during its absence. The compilation comes with a variety of new and old tracks from the likes of SZA, Bryson Tiller, Jazmine Sullivan, GoldLink, Buddy, Lion Babe, Jorja Smith, and the show’s star/creator Issa Rae.
Kier Lehman, Insecure’s music supervisor, recently opened up about the project, including tapping SZA to join in on the movement. “We get advance music from all the labels, but of course we have this special relationship with RCA,” explained Lehman. “They were feeding us a lot of their upcoming releases early, in the hopes that we could work that into the show. The SZA stuff we got from them early, and obviously it fit so well with the show that we were able to use two songs in the first two episodes.”
Later, he went on to say that Issa has been very involved in the music selection process. “She comes in with songs that she already has in mind for certain themes,” shared Lehman. “She will let me know if there’s something that’s been cut in and she wants to see some other options. And I’ll pull a few things, and then present them to her, and from there she’ll make her final selection. It all goes through her, and it all comes from her really. She’s giving the direction, and I’m here to provide her with the choices that I think would be good for the show.”
We have a bit of a wait until Season 3’s debut, so in the meantime tune into the project below.
