DRAKE’S RECORD label OVO Sound has today announced the release of Top Boy – A Selection of Music Inspired By The Series in conjunction with the premiere of Season 3 of the show on Netflix.

The album features 17 tracks of all-new and original music from an all-star UK lineup including Mercury nominated rapper Dave, who has a leading role in the new series.

Top Boy also includes tracks from Giggs, Lil Simz, AJ Tracey as well as OVO artists Baka Not Nice and Popcaan.

Earlier this week, Drake announced the Top Boy album, two years after a deal with Netflix was struck back in 2017 as a result of his deep appreciation for the show and its characters after it was cancelled back in 2013.

Now with its revival and OVO overseeing the musical direction, the renewed crime drama series set in Hackney, east London, created by Ronan Bennet, has its finger on the pulse of the culture.

Directed by Yann Demange and Jonathan van Tulleken, the third season sees the return of actor Ashley Walters and rapper/actor Kane Robinson in their roles of Dushan and Shane for ten thrilling new episodes.
