Power Book fans compare Force and Ghost theme songs

With 50 Cent as executive producer on the Power Book series, it’s no surprise the show features a killer soundtrack. 50 Cent’s Big Rich Town served as the theme song for Power Book 2: Ghost but the Power Book 4: Force series has a new theme song.

The theme is a new single from 50 Cent featuring two of Chicago’s finest, Lil Durk and Jeremih. It’s entitled ‘Power Powder Respect’. 50 Cent released the song in January to get fans hyped for the new season of Power Book 4: Force. He also released an accompanying music video on 17 January.

Since the release of the new Power Book 4 series, fans have been comparing it to the Power Book 2: Ghost theme song. One viewer tweeted: “This new Power got mad as theme song, but Big Rich Town is better (sic).”

However, others have thrown praise on the new theme song. One fan tweeted it: “Sefinitely set the tone for the show – it’s dark, moody and kinda menacing.”
