Air Soundtrack: Every Song Featured in the Prime Video Movie – Ben Affleck is back. I know, I know, he did not go anywhere, and we constantly see him on the silver screen in some role or the other, but Ben Affleck – the director, was dearly missed. Affleck returns to glowing reviews with Air after slacking up in 2016’s Live by Night. The new Amazon Produced film also finds him reteaming with long-time collaborator and friend Matt Demon who stars as the person the loose biopic is based on. 

Air delves into the remarkable story of NBA rookie Michael Jordan and his groundbreaking partnership with sports company Nike in 1984. Affleck’s movie showcases the compelling journey of how this iconic deal came to fruition, forever changing the landscape of sports branding and introducing the world to the legendary Air Jordan trainers.

Seen through the eyes of Sonny Vaccaro, who proposes the impossible idea of signing one player for the Nike brand rather than putting the budget on courting multiple basketball favorites, the movie’s meticulous attention to detail and authentic portrayal of the era, helps even the most passive audiences get into the dynamic world of professional basketball and how important it was for a shoe brand to sign a prospect. 

Currently, at a Rotten Tomatoes score of 92%, Air has gained Affleck some of the most glowing reviews of his entire career, making Air a must-see for everyone.

As Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro embarks on the exhilarating journey to secure a groundbreaking deal with rookie basketball sensation Michael Jordan, the soundtrack makes the journey exhilarating. 

Under the curation of music supervisor Andrea von Foerster, the film immerses viewers in the sonic landscape of 1984.
