FIFA 17 Soundtrack Destined To Go Big Or Go Home

Have you ever noticed how practically every title put out by video game developers at EA Sports also has a memorable soundtrack to along with it?

FIFA 16 was released last year and features a playlist of more than 42 artists, including such big names as Sam Smith, X Ambassadors, Bastille, Beck, Of Mice and Men, BØRNS, RAC, and Kygo, among others.

EA Sports is celebrating 25 years of cutting-edge sports video gaming this year, so FIFA 17 is almost guaranteed to have a stellar soundtrack as well as some cool new features for gamers.

In preparation for the release of FIFA 17, this September, fans have already started to turn online to guess and list suggestions for songs which they want to see added to the game.

Some of the most requested songs, according to fan blog, include: “I Can’t Feel My Face,” by The Weeknd; “Written In the Stars,” by Tinie Tempah and Eric Turner; “Lean On” by Major Lazer & DJ Snake (feat. MØ); “Centuries,” by Fallout Boy; and “Die A Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett.

While those are all terrific choices, we here at AWM have our own predictions for some names we hope we might see when FIFA 17 drops in September.

• G-Eazy
