What Is The Song In Creed III's First Official Trailer?

Michael B. Jordan's directorial debut, "Creed III," is coming out swinging, with an official trailer that offers up a new challenge for Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan). The boxer has found happiness and success while raising a family with Bianca (Tessa Thompson). But when an old face from Creed's past, Anderson Dame (Jonathan Majors), returns to threaten everything he's built, the fighter will have to step back into the ring to defeat him.

The ninth installment in the "Rocky" franchise, "Creed III," is also the first without Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa. Nevertheless, Stallone is producing (via Movie Web), and it's still exciting to see how Jordan and the film series will handle this challenge.

Part of what makes the trailer's climax so heart-pounding is the hip-hop song that soundtracks Creed's preparation for battling Dame in the ring. Here's more about the track that was used in the "Creed III" preview.

The Creed III trailer song is Sinner & Saint by Tommee Profitt

One of the biggest reasons the song in the "Creed III" trailer feels perfect is that it was literally written to be within a big exciting movie climax. "Sinner & Saint (feat. Beacon Light & Moiba Mustapha)" by Tommee Profitt is part of "Cinematic Songs (Vol. 7)," a collection of songs meant for trailers, films, and television shows.

Profitt began writing sync licensing music in 2014 when he signed with Capitol/Universal (via Linq Magazine). The songwriter told Linq, "I dove in headfirst and have pretty much exclusively focused on making cinematic music since. Not only because it's what works for placements, but because it's genuinely my favorite type of music to make."

According to IMDb, Profitt's work has been used in shows as varied as "Batwoman," "9-1-1: Lone Star," and "Reign," among others. The musician is proud of his range and that, like the films he loved growing up, "When people listen, they escape somewhere else, even for just 3-4 minutes" (via Linq Magazine).
