Wiz Khalifa's Stranger Things Song: Rapper samples TV theme

Posted on

Wiz Khalifa has joined in on the Stranger Things fandom.

The rapper, fresh off his summer tour with Snoop Dogg, debuted a new track on Sunday that’s named for the Netflix show and samples its spooky ’80s-inspired theme song, written by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.

Also called “Stranger Things,” the song’s produced by E. Dan, Big Jerm, and Sayez, and features J.R. Donato, who’s depicted on the track’s art, an illustration of Khalifa and Donato riding bikes in the woods as a monster — a Demogorgon?! — looms overhead.

“It’s like I’m talking to a stranger, A stranger, a stranger, a stranger/ Now everybody getting stranger, They’re stranger, they’re stranger, they’re stranger,” Khalifa raps on the hook.

It’s just a shame Khalifa didn’t hook up with the Stranger Things cast before the Emmys.
