New age rap god, Kendrick Lamar is announced as the producer for ..wait for it.. Black Panther film soundtrack. And he dropped the lead single for the soundtrack featuring TDE’s first lady, SZA.
‘It’s titled All The Stars’.
We were never ready. This is huge for the culture.
The multi-award-winning artist will be working with Marvel Studios and director, Ryan Coogler and together, they will create a collection of original songs specifically for this superhero movie.
Listen, Marvel Studios is going for our hearts and souls. K-dot is exactly the right person for this job. We know this, don’t doubt this because his entire artistry, his values — both as an artist and as an individual align so perfectly with everything that the Black Panther movie stands for.
Beyond that, he is an epic creative, so we know for sure that he will produce the hell out of the soundtrack (the first drop is already enough receipt for this claim.)
He is just as excited as we are (but let’s admit, we’re probably the more excited parties).
This also marks the first time that the rapper will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture. And the collaboration itself represents the first time in Marvel Cinematic Universe history that Marvel will integrate multiple original recordings created specifically for the film.
‘Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honoured to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision,’ Lamar said in a statement.
Cooglar said he is honoured to be working with such an incredible artist, whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those they explore in the film.
‘I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store.’
February can’t come soon enough.
Here’s the soundtrack:
