The One Night in Miami soundtrack prominently features the music of the late Sam Cooke, whose life experiences partially inspired the fictionalized storyline. There are indeed some recognizable needledrop tunes in the Amazon Prime film, but its beating musical heart revolves around Cooke classics, which are performed to near-perfection by cast member Leslie Odom, Jr., who audiences will recognize as Aaron Burr from Hamilton. One Night in Miami celebrates the music of a legend, but also provides some cultural context about his most enduring classic, "A Change Is Gonna Come."

Directed by Regina King in her theatrical directorial debut and based on Kemp Powers' eponymous play, One Night in Miami takes place on February 25, 1964. After boxer Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali (Eli Goree) defeats Sonny Liston to become the heavyweight champ, he meets up with civil rights activist Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), NFL star Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), and the aforementioned Cooke. In a Miami hotel room, the Black icons discuss race, religion, and politics, with the fictionalized conversations providing insight about the state of America during the '60s civil rights movement.

The One Night in Miami score was composed by Terence Blanchard, who received an Oscar nomination for his work in BlacKkKlansman.
