The highly anticipated musical companion to Black Panther is finally out. Black Panther: The Album is the brainchild of rapper Kendrick Lamar, who was hand-picked by director Ryan Coogler to curate music for the Marvel movie, making it the first time Lamar has written, produced and curated an album exclusively for a film.
Joining Lamar on the lead single from the album, “All The Stars,” is his Top Dawg Entertainment label-mate SZA. The album also features collaborations by many notable rappers and R&B artists, like Future, Travis Scott and The Weeknd, just to name a few. Previously, Lamar and company had released “All The Stars” (and the stunning music video for the song), “Kings Dead” and “Pray for Me” in preparation for the album. Now, you can stream the album in its entirety via Spotify below, or via your streaming service of choice here. With an extensive 14-track song list, Black Panther: The Album will be just what we need to get us through until Black Panther arrives in theaters on Feb. 16.
