Super Soundtrack: “Bel-Air” on Peacock

With the modern-day struggles our “Bel-Air” characters face also comes a modern-day soundtrack with artists from Philly to Cali.

Bel-Air is a new, dramatic take on the classic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series, and the one-hour drama series is now streaming on Peacock. The show is set in modern-day America, so the characters from the beloved sitcom we all know and love are now set against a backdrop that is surrounded by racism, and we see the way representation matters today more than ever.
