Wiz Khalifa has dropped a new track featuring a familiar Stranger Things sample.
Titled ‘Stranger Things’, the track samples the buzzy Netflix show’s opening theme (composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein) and features a guest appearance from fellow rapper J. R. Donato. Listen below.
Wiz Khalifa released his sixth album ‘Khalifa’ in February. Another album, ‘Rolling Papers 2’, is expected before the end of the year.
Meanwhile, three of the Stranger Things child cast performed at the Emmys on Sunday night (September 18) as part of its untelevised pre-show entertainment. Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin took to the stage as guests found their seats, covering Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ hit ‘Uptown Funk’. Watch footage below.

Netflix finally confirmed that it has renewed Stranger Things for a second season earlier this month (September). Season two will feature nine episodes – one more than the first – with co-creators Matt and Ross Duffy returning alongside executive producer Dan Cohen.
“We’ll be doing more than just a rehash of season one,” Cohen has since told Yahoo!. “We’re coming back with a few new characters, expanding storylines and mythologies, so it’ll feel like the stakes are raised and more is going on and really delivering on the promise and pushing for more.”
