Leading Weapon: Radical remains to create a declaration at package workplace 3 months after its own impressive launching. The highly-anticipated follow up is actually today the 6th highest-grossing flick of perpetuity in the USA. Leading Weapon: Radical included the Kenny Loggins attacked “Threat Region,” which ended up being a feeling when the 1st movie was actually discharged in 1986.

“It believes really good to become a component of this sensation once again, truly,” Kenny said to HollywoodLife specifically while advertising the movie’s latest Digital launch. “It’s exciting to see it moving around me and to see the streaming numbers going up. It’s fun to see that and to get to put my toe in the game a little bit longer.”

Kenny’s “Danger Zone” was part of the film’s soundtrack, along with Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand.” The song is the sequel’s lead single. Kenny admitted he was “blown away” the first time he heard Gaga’s track.

“I was really surprised at how great her track came out. I don’t know why I was surprised, but I didn’t expect a ballad like that,” Kenny said. “That’s a very old-school ballad format, and she nailed it. It’s a powerful thing, and it works really well on the screen, and I think in some ways better than as a hit single, which I don’t know how far up the charts it went. But as a closer to the movie, it was like the perfect ending thing. And what a voice. I’m always blown away by what she can do with her voice.”

Kenny acknowledged that Top Gun: Maverick definitely had that nostalgia factor as well as really embraced the importance of a movie’s soundtrack as many ’80s movies did. “There has been a big movement towards the ’80s music resurfacing as well as channels on satellite radio. Every young person that I know that’s in music is actually steeped in ’80s music, and I think that’s interesting. I’m not sure exactly why. I’m glad that’s happening because I was actually there…”

He added, “I think there was actually a lot of energy around the ’80s music, especially when it came to films because nobody had done it before. Rock and roll was not an accepted musical format for movies except if you had a movie about rock and roll. When it first started happening right at the beginning with Caddyshack and Footloose, the videos got so much airplay on MTV, which was also a new format, because the movie companies were pouring a ton of money into making great videos. It was the best way to sell the soundtracks, and it worked like a charm. I think the merging of those two: pop music with pop movies, if you will, has truly made those movies iconic.”

The singer-songwriter recently released his memoir Still Alright. He called writing his memoir a “combination of therapy and a deposition.” He revealed, “It was actually a two-year process for me as well as really an interesting balancing act of wanting to tell the total truth as well as, at the same time, certainly not piss off my ex-wives.”
