Sam Tinnesz x Jung Youth’s ‘Fighter‘ was that fabulously powerful rap/hip hop track that appeared on the season finale of DC’s Stargirl last night — DC’s Stargirl, Season 1, Episode 13, season finale — “Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E.”.
The track was heard during the episode opening on the football field.
Sam Tinnesz x Jung Youth’s ‘Fighter’ is a stand-alone single the Nashville-based singer songwriter put out last year in collaboration with fellow Nashville-based hip hop artist Jung Youth (aka Justin Donahue).
The song is just one of the tracks Sam Tinnesz has had featured on hit TV shows in the last couple of years.
Other shows that have licensed Tinnesz’ music include Teen Mom: Young + Pregnant, Siesta Key, The Royals, American Ninja Warrior, Quantico, Riverdale, Charmed, Shadowhunters, Prison Break, Power and World of Dance.
Collaborator Jung Youth has also started to become popular with TV show Music Supervisors with his music featured on Siesta Key, Black Ink Crew, All American, This Way Up, The Resident and The Main Event.

And, if you like this type of music — rap/hip hop mixed with a beautifully addictive melody and beat and with ridiculously intelligent lyrics that actually mean something — don’t miss listening to James Arthur’s hard-to-find mixtape All The World’s a Tape, because it is brilliant and did not get the attention it so hugely deserved.
And, of course, there is a boatload more information about other music used on the first season of DC’s Stargirl on Leo Sigh here.
