Last week, it was teased that Kendrick Lamar might be recording some new music for Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther movie. The rapper had teased his work on Black Panther, the 2018 Marvel movie directed by Fruitvale Station and Creed’s Ryan Coogler, in the music video for ‘LOVE’.
Well, that did not take too long at all. K.Dot comes through with a new song titled ‘All The Stars’ and he’s got his label mate SZA for company to assist with the singing vocals. You can stream their collaboration below and pre-order the Black Panther soundtrack here. According to the press release, Kendrick and Top Dawg Entertainment will produce the full soundtrack which hits stores February 9th.
Both Coogler and actor Chadwick Boseman are fans of Kendrick so the rapper’s involvement with the project isn’t surprising. “The lyrics are amazing — a lot of Kendrick’s are,” Coogler told the Los Angeles Times in July. “It’s actually oddly literal for our trailer’s purposes — and I think a lot of the cultural things we’re dealing with in Wakanda are in the zeitgeist in the African American community.”
