A week before the critically acclaimed Black Panther movie hits theaters everywhere, the highly anticipated Kendrick Lamar & Top Dawg-curated soundtrack has arrived for our listening pleasure.
Laced with 14 tracks in total, the soundtrack features new music from and inspired by the movie, including 5 tracks with Kendrick Lamar and others from SZA, Jorja Smith, The Weeknd, and more.
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Kendrick Lamar said. “The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.” Top Dawg commented, “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”
