Dear White People music supervisor Morgan Rhodes is a stan for artists on the show’s soundtrack


Netflix/Adam RoseThe season two soundtrack for Netflix’s Dear White People features a variety of artists, including Tyler, The CreatorDej Loaf and Jidenna

The show’s music supervisor Morgan Rhodes tells ABC Radio that her musical choices for the hit series stems, in large part, from being a fan herself.

“I’m a fan of everybody on this soundtrack. Some of them a stan, even,” she says.

According to Rhodes, she and Justin Simien, the creator of Dear White People, “worked closely together to develop a profile for all the characters in Dear White People and to sort of soundtrack the experience of going to college now as a millennial.”

She adds, “And so we wanted to sort of allow our characters to discover music, even as their narratives play out. We are vicariously living through them.”

Morgan also points out that her musical tastes have always veered towards “indie,” which explains her eclectic choices for both the soundtrack and each episode of Dear White People‘s second season.

“I love indie music across genres. And I love hybrid genres,” she says. 

“So I love electropop and future soul and soul-punk. So anything that is a cross-hybrid of genres, I really love. And so that’s what we tried to do here. We went deep.”

The season two soundtrack of Dear White People is available via the usual digital platforms.
