Tyler the Creator records theme song for Bill Nye’s new Netflix series

Tyler the Creator’s admiration for Bill Nye is a mutual fondness, leading to the science wiz recruiting the rapper for his latest theme song.

In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, Nye revealed that the 26-year-old is responsible for creating the upcoming Netflix series’ opening anthem.

He captioned the clip, “Loved the original @BillNye The Science Guy theme song? Get ready for @TylerTheCreator’s fresh new take for #BillNyeSavesTheWorld.”

Tyler reminisced on his childhood memories of Bill’s original PBS show from the 90s. After admitting he was a huge fan of the original theme song, the rapper made sure to pay the track the homage it deserved while revamping it in a unique way.

“The first one is really sick,” Tyler said. “I love the fast-pacedness of it. You take out that snare, it could be a house song.”

Nye’s new project, which focuses on science and its impact on politics, society and pop culture will feature guest appearances from Steve Aoki, Karlie Kloss, Zach Braff and Rachel Bloom.

Last week, the educator told Vulture what he hopes to accomplish with his new series.

“Change the world. That’s the goal. Our six-and-a-half hours of television are going to change the course of human history. We’re going to do that by promoting science literacy, showing people that the issues we’re discussing can be thought about from a scientific point of view, and by helping people to reach logical and well-reasoned conclusions about those same issues. And of course, it’ll be fun.”

Bill Nye Saves The World hits Netflix on April 21.
