What Is The Rap Song In The Shazam! Fury Of The Gods Trailer?

The spellbinding second trailer for "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" has finally arrived, and with it comes a slew of revelations regarding what is set to go down in the exciting follow-up feature. While the brief promo showcases tons of excitement and new faces, many viewers might also wonder what song is being played in the background. 

"Shazam! Fury of the Gods" brings back several of the same players from the original movie and adds some new talent, including Helen Mirren, Leslie Grace, and Lucy Liu. The first trailer introduced the new villains and the threats our hero Shazam (Zachary Levi) will face, and the second trailer offers even more reveals. Menacing ancient evildoers, magic staff action, and earth-shattering dragon uppercuts are just some of the excellent ordeals set to occur in the highly anticipated second chapter of the "Shazam!" franchise.

While there are many small details in the second "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" trailer you may not have noticed, the catchy tune everyone heard playing in the background likely sounded familiar. 

Drake's 'Started From the Bottom' is the song playing in the second trailer for the Shazam! sequel

Amid all the wondrous wizardry and superhero mayhem viewers are treated to in the second trailer for "Shazam! Fury of the Gods," there is a song playing throughout that many will recognize as Drake's popular track "Started from the Bottom." 

Drake released the song in February 2013 off of the "Nothing Was the Same" studio album. The successful tune received Grammy nominations for best rap song and best rap performance. It also earned great reviews from outlets like Complex, which stated, "'Started From the Bottom' is Drake at his most irrepressibly memorable. Stripped down to a simple piano line and a crisp, unforgettable drum pattern, the song's simplicity gave it a singular fingerprint." So far, the music video for "Started from the Bottom" has over 500 million views on YouTube.

While the character wasn't completely unknown before he got the live-action treatment on the big screen, in terms of raw popularity, some would argue that "Shazam!" may rank toward the bottom of the DC Universe's roster. If this song is any indicator, it seems the fun-loving hero is making it known that there is a good chance "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" will launch his superhero stock through the stratosphere.
