Go To

Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is, as you can tell, the soundtrack of the 2015 blockbuster Furious 7. The album features a wide variety of artists, and contains primarily Hip-Hop, EDM, urban pop, and latin music. The soundtrack was made to provide the perfect urban dance partynote .

The album debuted at at #12 on the Billboard 200, but shot up to #1 on the chart following the success of the movie. Its biggest success was that it produced "See You Again", a song by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth made in tribute to the late Paul Walker. The song became one of the biggest hits of 2015, setting several recordsnote  and dethroning Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk!" from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 after 14 weeks, after which it stayed at #1 for 12 non-consecutive weeks. The song eclipsed the movie itself in terms of popularity, which is no small feat considering Furious 7 made 1.5 billion dollars. "Ride Out" and "Go Hard or Go Home" were also popular songs.

It's been a long day without you my friend, and I'll tell you all about it when I trope you again

  • Advertised Extra: Iggy Azalea in "Go Hard or Go Home". It's equally credited to her and Wiz Khalifa, but Wiz does almost the entire song while Iggy only contributes a verse. Also, Rich Homie Quan in "Ride Out", who only does the intro despite having equal credit to the others.
  • All-Star Cast: The album features a variety of huge stars from rap, latin, and EDM genres, mixed with some lesser-knowns.
  • Badass Driver: Several songs, such as "Ride Out", "How Bad Do You Want It (Oh Yeah)", and "Go Hard or Go Home", portray one. As to be expected, considering the movie the soundtrack is based on.
  • Boastful Rap: All the songs with rap apart from "See You Again", as to be expected.
  • Celebrity Elegy: "See You Again" is is dedicated to Paul Walker, who died in a car accident during production of the movie. It plays over the In Memoriam montage for Walker at the end of the movie.
  • Foreign Language Theme: "Meneo" and "Ay Vamos" are in Spanish.
  • Genre Roulette: A variety of different genres come together on this soundtrack, and they all fit pretty well.
    • Party hip-hop: "Ride Out", "Off-Set", "Go Hard or Go Home"
    • Hardcore hip-hop: "Payback"
    • Urban pop: "How Bad Do You Want It (Oh Yeah)"
    • EDM/Trap: "Get Low", "Blast Off" "G.D.F.R.", "Turn Down for What"
    • Reggaeton: "Ay Vamos"
    • Latin pop: "My Angel", "Meneo"
    • Soft pop: "See You Again", "I Will Return"
    • Trip-hop/trance: "Six Days"
    • Snap: "Whip"
  • Intercourse with You: "How Bad Do You Want It (Oh Yeah)" has hints of this, as the title would suggest.
  • Mood Whiplash: "My Angel", an EDM latin pop song, is followed by "See You Again", a piano ballad to an actor that died, and then "Payback", a Hardcore Hip-Hop song.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: "Whip" by Famous to Most (easily the least well-known artist on the soundtrack) is the last song and doesn't appear in the movie.
  • Ode to Intoxication: "Ay Vamos" references smoking marijuana.
  • Repurposed Pop Song: "Get Low", "Blast Off", "Six Days", "Ay Vamos", "G.D.F.R.", "Turn Down For What", and "Whip" were the only songs not made for the movie.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: "Payback" is about Deckard Shaw's quest for revenge against the heroes of the story.
  • Surprisingly Gentle Song: "See You Again", in-between all the urban rap and twerk-tasic EDM, is a soft piano ballad that plays tribute to the late Paul Walker. It sounds nothing like the rest of the album, and was the biggest hit. "I Will Return" by Skylar Grey is also a soft piano ballad, but it wasn't released as a single.
  • Unexpected Character: Compared to all the stars on the soundtrack, Charlie Puth was probably the least well known above only Famous to Most and Lookas, with only one single to his name before the album was released. Him being selected to sing the chorus of "See You Again" proved well in making it a massive hit.
  • Villain Song: "Payback", being from the perspective of Deckard Shaw, is the only one about the villain on the soundtrack.
  • A Wild Rapper Appears!: "See You Again" has this feel, being a piano ballad almost suited to adult contemporary apart from the rap verses.
