Pusha T Gives His Version Of HBO Show Theme Song On "Puppets (Succession Remix)"
The second season of HBO's Succession will draw to a conclusion this Sunday, and just in time for the show to come to its curtain call, Pusha T's remix to the series' theme song has finally been released. The song's composer, Nicholas Britell, revealed to Vulture why he called on Pusha to lay a few bars over his track. "There was only one person on the list of people to reach out to. Of course it had to be Pusha," Britell said. "There was no backup, there was no plan B. Pusha’s voice is like a missile!"
After Push penned his rhymes, everyone loved what he came up with, but he was told he had to rewrite the song because, somehow, he ended up revealing too much of the storyline on the track. "I was like, 'How, I didn’t even see it?’" he joked. "So I tweaked some things because the lines were a bit too detailed. I think [Nick] didn’t want to ask me to redo anything. Ordinarily, I probably wouldn’t have. But, I mean, the show is dope." Let us know what you think.
Got my hands tied, the powers above me
Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just a puppet here
If you want to place blame, look to the puppeteer
