Nas x Tobe Nwigwe Release Official Music Video for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is inching its way closer to releasing in theaters and Mass Appeal has released the original song On My Soul to get us excited.

Produced by The Good Stewards, Tobe Nwigwe (who also stars in the movie) & Nas feat. Jacob Banks come together for one epic song that’s available now to stream/download on all major digital music platforms, including Amazon.

“Seeing him live in performance, I was like how we can capture that energy in a Transformers film,” said Transformers director Steven J. Caple in a video featurette that accompanies the video.

As seen in the video above, that energy is very clear when Nwigwe and his wife, known as Fat, who dress in matching clothes in most of their videos, are shown with their Black Angels collective in a power plant.

As the group dances to the music, Nwigwe is shown first in what could be a control room overlooking the plant and then on a Ducati motorcycle as the group dances around him. Vocalist Jacob Banks is seated in what looks to be another room in the facility as members of the collective pour gasoline all around it.

“Bring me the smoke and I’ll build you a fire/To burn my desire,” Banks sings while holding a match aloft.

Nas comes in on the second half of the song, sitting in a semi-truck surrounded by dancers on all sides. Nas is then shown on the top of the truck rapping the rest of his verse.

The song swells to a powerful conclusion with Banks, Nwigwe and the dancers leaving the scene.

Making his acting debut, Nwigwe “was extremely excited because I was able to bring all my family with me,” Nwigwe said of the film’s shoot in Montreal. “I don’t like to miss any opportunity to spend time with my family,” he told a reporter in a red-carpet interview recently. All of this is extremely exciting but seeing my kids grow up, every aspect of that is very important to me.”

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is directed by Steven Caple Jr. and also stars Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Dean Scott Vazquez, Luna Lauren Velez, Peter Cullen, Peter Dinklage, Ron Perlman, Michelle Yeoh, John DiMaggio, Liza Koshy, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, David Sobolov, Colman Domingo and Pete Davidson. 

The film will be released in theaters nationwide on June 9 by Paramount Pictures.
