From the Rocky sort of-sequel Creed soundtrack, “Fighting Stronger” by Meek Mill, Jhene Aiko and Ludwig Göransson's, and Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, Jhené Aiko, Vince Staples and Ludwig Göransson's “Waiting For My Moment.” Eminem's "Phenomenal" from Southpaw also made it, as did three songs from Spike Lee's controversial Chi-Raq: Jennifer Hudson's "I Run," "Sit Down For This" by Mali Music, and in what is probably the best news for him in recent memory, "Pray 4 My City" by Nick Cannon. Wiz Khalifa's massive smash "See You Again" is there too, obviously. The actual nominees will be announced sometime before the 88th Annual Academy Awards airs next February 28, 2016.
