Good news for you! The Top Dawg Entertainment and Kendrick Lamar-produced soundtrack for Black Panther was released this morning. Lamar has writing credits on all 14 tracks, and he performs on five of them.
The soundtrack features many of his usual friends and collaborators, including SZA, The Weeknd, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Ab-Soul, Future, and Zacari, the singer-songwriter who came more or less out of nowhere to help write and perform Lamar’s 2017 hit “LOVE.” Also, Khalid and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee are working together? Weird combination, but it works! Obviously the Vince Staples song is the best one.
Earlier this week, Lamar released a video for the soundtrack’s lead single featuring SZA. She looks extremely cool and has at least 12 outfit changes, each one better than the last.
Black Panther is in theaters February 16th!
