The official Us soundtrack includes Abels' terrifying score, a couple of classic soul songs, and features the popular s hip-hop tune "I Got 5 on It". Abels has turned one of the most popular songs from the s into an eery tune fitting for a horror film. Aside from that, the talented composer has put together several unsettling tracks that support the disturbing atmosphere set up in Us. While the original score features music from Abels, the other songs come from well-known artists and spread across several decades, including the '70s and the '90s. These songs can be heard playing in the background throughout the film's runtime. Luniz's " I Got 5 on It" is first heard when the Wilson's are driving to the Santa Cruz beach to spend time with their friends, and is the only '90s song heard in the film. Minnie Ripperton's "Les Fleur" is used towards the end of the film after the Wilson's have fled the area and the tethered have taken out all of their original counterparts.
The music is composed by Leonard Bernstein with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim , and takes a phrase from the slow movement of Beethoven's 'Emperor' Piano Concerto , which forms the start of the melody. In the stage musical , the song appears in the second act of the show during the Somewhere Ballet. It is performed by an off-stage soprano singer and is later reprised by the entire company.
The song was released by Republic Records on 30 March as the third single off the album. Bay told Entertainment Weekly : "I've been lucky enough to meet people all over the world and witness the phenomenal strength of crowds. I wrote this song to explore unity and inclusion. Looking through the lens of my own personal relationships, this song turned out to be a particularly important moment on the album for me. Throughout the clip, Bay plays piano in an empty room.
