All the music in Luke Cage is on point. From Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed’s Muhammad's original score, to the live musical performances at Harlem’s Paradise, to our favorite Wu-Tang and Gang Starr records -- Luke Cage had it all. While we’re still waiting on a full soundtrack that includes the original score, other songs in Luke Cage are available to listen to right now. If you weren’t acquainted with artists like Raphael Saadiq, the Delfonics, Jidenna and Faith Evans, you can thank Luke Cage for changing your life for the better.

You may remember some of the following tracks from Adrian Younge’s Luke Cage spotify playlist released the day before the series. It was unclear at that time where in the series the songs would appear, but now we know most of the soul records included in the list are performed at Cottonmouths night club, Harlem’s Paradise.

Not all 13 episodes included musical guests playing at the club, but a solid 8 songs were performed throughout the entire series. Give them each a listen below:
