Super Soundtrack: Marvel Studios’ ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is finally, finally, finally here after what feels like a lifetime of waiting. Along with the movie, there is also a companion album aptly titled Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album featuring a myriad of Asian-American artists, which goes perfectly with the inclusive themes and global reach of the film.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is finally, finally, finally here after what feels like a lifetime of waiting. Check out my review to see what I thought of the film!

Along with the movie, there is also a companion album aptly titled Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album featuring a myriad of Asian-American artists, which goes perfectly with the inclusive themes and global reach of the film. A few of those songs show up in Shang-Chi, but there are also some massive past hits that make an appearance here and there — often in unexpected ways!

NOTE: There are going to be two halves to this article. The following portion will be a spoiler-free zone featuring only a list of the songs from Shang-Chi. Then, there will be a place for the movie’s trailer, and that will mark the transition to the spoiler zone. I hope this lets everyone enjoy the music from the film!
