One of the main reasons the song in the Creed III trailer feels perfect is that it was literally written for a big, exciting movie climax. “Sinner & Saint (feat. Beacon Light & Moiba Mustapha)” by Tommee Profitt is part of “Cinematic Songs (Vol. 7)”, a collection of songs intended for trailers, movies and TV shows.
Profitt began writing sync-licensed music in 2014 when he signed with Capitol/Universal (via Linq Magazine). The songwriter told Linq, “I dove headfirst into it and have focused almost exclusively on making film scores ever since. Not just because it works for internships, but because it really is my favorite music.”
According to IMDb, Profitt’s work has been used on shows as diverse as Batwoman, 9-1-1: Lone Star, and Reign, among others. The musician is proud of his range and, like the movies he loved as a kid, “when people listen, they flee somewhere else, even for just 3-4 minutes” (via Linq Magazine).
