Kendrick Lamar is ready for Black Panther. The Grammy-nominated rapper dropped a new song featuring SZA on Thursday, and to call it amazing would simply be an understatement. “All the Stars” sounds like the perfect addition to what is sure to be an action-packed movie when Marvel’s long-awaited film hits cinemas on Feb. 12. But wait, there’s more! In addition to the new song, Kendrick has been tapped to produce and curate the film’s entire soundtrack because he’s just that talented.
“I am honoured to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film,” director Ryan Coogler said in a press release. “I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store.” Kendrick hinted at his involvement in the film when he released the music video for “Love” in December.
