Metro Boomin samples Homelander from ‘The Boys’ on ‘On Time’ track

Metro Boomin tried the original superhero dramedy from Amazon Prime The boys for a key track on his latest album HEROES & VILLIANS.

Embedded in John Legend-inclined the record “On Time,” which serves as the intro to the multi-platinum producer’s latest LP released Friday (Dec. 2), is a short clip of the violent, action-packed series protagonist Homelander’s explosive speech about heroism taken from episode two of third season.

At the end of the brief, ad-libbed guest appearance from A$AP Rocky sampled by Homelander’s unapologetic rhetoric, layered over the top of ominous operatic vocals, sets the scene for Chris Brown and The future government follow-up track “Superhero”.

“I’m done,” said Homelander, whose character is portrayed by actor Antony Starr. “I’m done apologizing. I’m done being persecuted for my strength. You should thank Christ that I am who and what I am because you need me. You need me to save you.”

In addition to appearances from John Legend, A$AP Rocky, Chris Brown and Future, Metro Boomin’s 15-song project is also home to featured guest verses from artists such as 21 Savage, Don Toliver and travis scott, Young Thug and Gunna. There’s also a posthumous feature from the late Migos rapper Take off, whose the accused murderer was arrested in connection with his shooting death in November on December 2.

During an interview with Ebro Darden in promotion of his album, Metro Boomin talked about his productive relationship with Future and explained why he did not appear on Pluto’s top-top project I NEVER LIKED YOU last April, as a result of what the dynamic duo has in store for their collective fanbase.

“Let me tell you why. [Future] actually finished most of the album in my studio in LA,” Metro said. “That’s my brother, but we’re working on some stuff. At first we were going to put a couple of songs with me and him on the album, but we had taken them off because I had talked to him.”

He continued: “I thought, ‘Look, the last time anybody really heard a song from me and you were ‘Mask Off.’ wait and just give them a joint.’
