Earlier this month, the star-studded soundtrack for The Great Gatsby was revealed, with the inclusion of a new Jay-Z track titled “100$ Bill.” Now Hova has teased “100$ Bill” with a 90-second preview, which leaked online over the weekend.

Jay-Z, an executive producer on the film and the man behind the soundtrack, wrote the song “100$ Bill” specifically for the film. Rapping about 9/11, prohibition, Einstein and Taylor Swift, he even intertwines F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel into the track. A heavy beat that showcases Jay-Z’s power, it’s just a hint at what’s to come from the film’s soundtrack. Listen below.

will.i.am and the xx also specifically penned new music for the summer blockbuster, while contributions from Beyonce, Fergie, Florence + the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Emeli Sande, Gotye and Jack White also made the soundtrack. A snippet of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild” could be heard in the film’s first trailer, but the song does not appear on the soundtrack.

The Great Gatsby hits theaters May 10.
