Renowned producer Metro Boomin, the mastermind behind the acclaimed soundtrack of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” is currently immersed in a captivating challenge related to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, all while fans eagerly await his highly anticipated album, Pluto, in collaboration with rap sensation Future.
The revelation of the Pluto project came a few months ago, sending shockwaves through the music industry. Metro Boomin’s collaboration with Future promised an album that would undoubtedly redefine the rap scene. However, before delving into the intricacies of Pluto, Metro has found himself entangled in the web of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
The success of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” soundtrack, featuring hits like Post Malone’s “Sunflower,” set the bar high for its sequel, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” Metro Boomin’s contribution to the latter not only secured the number one spot on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart but also debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200. The movie, too, soared to commercial success, weaving several references to “Across the Spider-Verse” into the narrative of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
In a recent tweet, Metro Boomin shared a unique update on the progress of his upcoming album. A snapshot showcased him engrossed in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay, alongside the declaration that the album cannot be considered complete until he conquers the game. What caught fans’ attention was the unconventional gaming setup, featuring a sleek briefcase monitor. Responding to queries about his progress, Metro shared an image of his save file, revealing that he has completed a mere 4% of the game. Playful banter ensued, with fans questioning whether he aimed for the platinum trophy, a notion Metro dismissed with laughter.
The revelation that Metro last played the game over three weeks ago led to humorous speculations about his gaming strategy. Fans quipped about his apparent plan to complete one mission per month, raising concerns about the album’s potential release date—some even jokingly suggesting it might not arrive before 2026 at his current pace. Despite the jests, it seems Metro is facing unexpected challenges within Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, as hinted in subsequent tweets about the notorious quests within the game.
Metro took a light-hearted jab at the Peter quests in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, expressing a preference for the game’s action-packed elements over seemingly mundane tasks. He specifically highlighted the amusing yet perplexing mission of disposing of old fruits in a trashcan during the “Roll Like We Used To” quest. Fans reveled in the humor, given the ongoing debates surrounding these commonplace quests in the game. While some encouraged Metro to persevere, assuring him of a more enjoyable gameplay experience in later stages, others playfully urged him to quicken his pace so that the album could arrive sooner.
As Metro Boomin navigates the challenges of emulating a day in the life of Peter Parker, fans are eagerly hoping that he can swing his way to victory over the holidays, bringing not only triumph in the game but also the long-awaited release of the Pluto album. The intersection of the gaming and music worlds has never been more intriguing, and Metro Boomin’s unique approach adds an extra layer of excitement to the anticipation surrounding Pluto.
