Ludacris’ new children’s animated series Karma’s World and its accompanying album are almost here.
On Monday (Sept. 13), it was announced that the Karma’s World Original Soundtrack album is set to be released Oct. 15, to coincide with the official premiere date for the upcoming Netflix animated show. Karma’s World was created and produced by the three-time Grammy-winner — alongside Karma’s World Entertainment and 9 Story Media Group — in honor of the hitmaker’s daughter, Karma.
“I am thrilled to be working with Universal Music Group to bring the music from Karma’s World to audiences everywhere,” Ludacris said in a statement. “UMG has been my partner on all my albums since day one and it’s very fitting that they are with me as I unveil the music from my new animated Netflix series, which has been a labor of love for over a decade and inspired by my eldest daughter.”
Added the Billboard chart-topper: “As a girl dad to four daughters, I am so proud of the music in this show which inspires creative confidence in kids and encourages them to embrace their full authentic selves.”
Speaking further on the musical influences that inspired the series’ soundtrack, Ludacris said, “When making music for Karma’s World, our creativity was unlimited. We experimented with country, reggae, reggaeton, pop, jazz, R&B, hip-hop, classical and so much more.”
Premiering Oct. 15 as part of Netflix’s Representation Matters Collection, Karma’s World will follow middle school student Karma as she homes in on her lyrical talent and solves everyday problems creatively. “The series serves up sophisticated beats, impressive rhymes and straight up catchy choruses all the while addressing important topics and themes in each episode,” Ludacris said in a statement. “The music on Karma’s World is not just for kids, I know for a fact that whole families will be singing and rhyming along.
“Karma’s World brings people together, tells great stories, and provides a sound for all ages,” Ludacris added.
