"Keep Up" is an unused song for the Sonic the Hedgehog film, performed by the late Juice WRLD. It was originally going to be the main theme for the film, but was replaced with "Speed Me Up".[1]

Lyrics

Gotta go fast
Gotta go faster, faster
Daytrip took it to ten (Hey)
Can you keep up? I don't think it's enough
Yeah, I'm calling your bluff, too quick for you
Knuckles, Money Mayweather, raise a fist at us
Emeralds dancin' on my body and they're all chaos (Oh)
Can you keep up? I don't think it's enough
Yeah, I'm calling your bluff, too quick for you
Knuckles, Money Mayweather, raise a fist at us
Emeralds dancin' on my body and they're all chaos (Oh)
I don't need a car, to run really fast, really quick, really far
If I run through the past, see the cuts and the scars
That's why I keep runnin', it keep me from fallin' apart
From fallin' apart
In order to get really far
Gotta acknowledge where you are
Take off like a comet through the stars
In these red Balenciagas, feel like Sonic Hedgehog
Oh-oh (Let's go, let's go, let's go)
Ain't no debate and they know I'm the greatest
[?] ridin' the radio waves
Disregard the people that's givin' you hate
Let your success slap them in the face
What they gon' do to you now? You great
Woke up today feelin' great
So I called Sonic on the phone
And said we should have a race
From the start to the finish, I'll be in the lead
And I'll never slow down, ain't no pumpin' no breaks
Remember what I said about radio-waves
When the haters come 'round, just wash 'em away
I'm just winnin' and stuntin' and runnin'
I got 'em like "Homina-homina-homina-homina"
Once I start runnin', can't do nothin' but give in
Welcome to my world, fast life livin'
Gotta go fast, ain't no way I'll be in last place
Get your running shoes out the stash, ayy
The ones you was usin' in gym class, ayy
Don't look at me like that
I didn't know I was that fast, ayy
Three steps, I'm honest, like two-hundred on the dash, ayy
Can you keep up? I don't think it's enough
Yeah, I'm calling your bluff, too quick for you
Knuckles, Money Mayweather, raise a fist at us
Emeralds dancin' on my body and they're all chaos (Oh)
Daytrip took it to ten (Hey)

Connection to film

  • Can you keep up? I don't think it's enough/Yeah, I'm calling your bluff, too quick for you - A direct reference to Sonic's speed and how Robotnik tried to keep up with him in the film in his Eggpod.
  • If I run through the past, see the cuts and the scars/That's why I keep runnin', it keep me from fallin' apart - Sonic has a theme of running or running from his troubles in the film as a way to vent.
  • In these red Balenciagas, feel like Sonic Hedgehog - This is in reference to Sonic receiving his trademark red and white sneakers from Jojo.
