On the heels of an Emmy win, the HBO original drama enlists Pusha T for an official remix.

As the HBO original drama Succession closes out its second season, the network is taking full advantage of its growing popularity. On Monday afternoon, HBO teased an official remix of the Nicholas Britell-produced theme featuring Pusha-T. Britell’s original recently took home an Emmy for Main Title Theme Music.

According to Vulture, Britell pitched the idea for the remix after Pusha’s manager introduced him to the show, comparing him to patriarch Logan Roy. After the two met at a studio session in Los Angeles, the wheels were set in motion.

Britell previously scored Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk, as well as Vice, The Big Short, and 12 Years a Slave. In 2013, Britell cited J. Dilla, Dr. Dre and DJ Premier as sonic influences.

The full track will be available for streaming Oct. 11, two days before the Season 2 finale.
