Clocking in at just over three minutes, “The Plan” is the rapper’s introduction to the world of movie soundtracks and acts as an exemplary escort to Nolan’s adrenaline-fuelled spy title. Scott’s delivery over the tense beat produced by Ludwig Göransson and WondaGurl is rapid and thrilling but is briefly contrasted by the melodic choruses, offering a moment that allows the energy to die down.
In a recent interview with GQ, Nolan referred to Scott as “the final piece of a year-long puzzle.” He added, “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer and Childish Gambino producer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.” When asked about TENET, Scott himself was at a loss for words, “I can’t even explain it. You literally just have to watch it. It’s very fire.”
