THE BOOK OF CLARENCE offers a fresh perspective on the Biblical epic through the creative lens of writer and director Jeymes Samuel. Drawing inspiration from his childhood environment and passion for epics, Samuel vividly brings to life the character of Clarence—a streetwise but down-on-his-luck individual, striving to secure a better life for his family while grappling to free himself from debt. Enthralled by the power and glory of the rising Messiah and His apostles, Clarence risks everything to carve his own path to a divine life. In doing so, he ultimately discovers that the redemptive power of belief may be his only way out.

ABOUT THE TRACK
‘Hallelujah Heaven’ by Jeymes Samuel featuring Lil Wayne, Buju Banton & Shabba Ranks is the first track to be revealed from Legendary Entertainment’s highly anticipated film The Book of Clarence, directed by award-winning multi-hyphenate Jeymes Samuel.
An enrapturing first taste from his epic second feature and soundtrack from the trailblazing British filmmaker, the track was also written and produced by Samuel, and is available today via Roc Nation. It comes with the official trailer for The Book of Clarence, which will see its worldwide premiere January 2024.
“The Book of Clarence is a film that I wanted to make for many years. While I was working on The Harder They Fall and all my other projects, the story and the music for The Book of Clarence was always there percolating in my mind,” shares Jeymes Samuel. “There was never a question as to whether I would compose the score and write and perform on the soundtrack, as well as write and direct the movie – it was all one amazing journey where one depended on the other. But I also worked with the most awesome artists on our track “Hallelujah Heaven”. Collaborating with Lil’ Wayne, Buju Banton and Shabba Ranks was so dope, I loved getting them all on the same track.”
The Book of Clarence Official Soundtrack features new music by Jeymes Samuel, JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi and more to be revealed.
