The Pop Covers from Queen Charlotte's Soundtrack Will Make You Cry Tears of Joy
Dearest readers, there are so many reasons why we all adore Netflix's Regency-era series Bridgerton. From royal ensembles to heartwarming (and sometimes heartbreaking) romances and jaw-dropping gossip, the 'Ton undoubtedly tugs at our heartstrings. Bridgerton is also known for period-era renditions of classic songs as the backdrop to some of the show's most iconic scenes. Netflix kept that same energy with the soundtrack for its prequel series Queen Charlotte, and we have no choice but to stan. In the new prequel series, singles from Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and SZA set the perfect backdrop for a fictionalized retelling of Queen Charlotte and King George III's young romance.
"It was important to honor Queen Charlotte with her own musical palette… and that felt like Charlotte’s essence,” Alexandra Patsavas, Queen Charlotte music supervisor, tells Netflix's Tudum. Netflix went above and beyond with this soundtrack. According to Patsavas, the remake of Alicia Key's "If I Ain't Got You" featured a "first-of-its-kind orchestra made up of more than 70 women of color who hail from all over the world, including Sweden, South Africa, and France."
The prequel also features new music from composer Kris Bowers, who Tudum says "shaped the Bridgerton universe's musical sensibilities since season 1." The longtime Bridgerton composer revealed that the new song, "A Feeling I've Never Been," plays during young Queen Charlotte and young King George's wedding." Along with pop covers of hit songs that we all love, the soundtrack also features an original score from Bowers.
With all the effort Netflix put into Queen Charlotte's soundtrack, it's only right that we want to make a playlist with the iconic tunes to play on repeat.
