OneRepublic Drops New Song ‘I Ain’t Worried’ From ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ – Billboard

The Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack has risen to a new height. OneRepublic joins Lady Gaga on the film’s highly anticipated soundtrack and released a carefree new single titled “I Ain’t Worried” on Friday (May 13). The video, directed by Isaac Rentz, even borrows scenes from the movie with lead Tom Cruise.

The image cuts between clips of the band performing on an outdoor stage decorated with palm trees at sunset and clips taken directly from the movie scheduled for May 27. “I’ll take it and let it go, but I’m not worried about that right now,” OneRepublic star Ryan Tedder sings as Cruise’s character Pete Mitchell plays a game of beach soccer.

Top Gun: Maverick will serve as a sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, about US Navy pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. The follow-up will show the character 30 years later, confronting his fears and training recruits for a special flight mission, with a sampling of some of those mid-air action scenes featured in OneRepublic’s new video.

“I’m at my best when I have something I want to steal,” Tedder sings over a clip of Maverick taking off into the sky, flying over the ocean.

The laid-back song is quite a stark contrast to the film’s emotional and sorrowful theme song written and performed by Lady Gaga, “Hold My Hand.” Cruise previously told James Corden that the 13-time Grammy winner’s tune “opened those doors to the emotional core of the movie that we had.”

He added, “The song that she had written was a perfect fit and really became the underlying score and heartbeat of our film.”
