The soundtrack has been released for Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story – check it out below.
Created by Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy), the Netflix prequel series follows young Queen Charlotte’s (India Amarteifio and Golda Rosheuvel) rise to prominence in the late 18th century.
A synopsis reads: “Young Queen Charlotte’s marriage to King George of England sparks an epic love story and transforms high society in this Bridgerton universe prequel.”
Alongside Amarteifio and Rosheuvel, the show’s cast includes Arsema Thomas, Adjoa Andoh, Ruth Gemmell, Corey Mylchreest, Michelle Fairley and Sam Clemmett.
Who composed the soundtrack for Queen Charlotte?

What other songs feature in the series?
Like Bridgerton, Queen Charlotte features orchestral covers of pop songs throughout. For the spin-off, however, every track featured is by a Black female artist. “It was important to honour Queen Charlotte with her own musical palette… and that felt like Charlotte’s essence,” Alexandra Patsavas, Queen Charlotte music supervisor, told Tudum.
Alongside the covers, Alicia Keys rerecorded a sung version of her 2003 track ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ for the show to mark the song’s 20th anniversary.
