LISTEN: Kendrick Lamar and SZA Teams Up for BLACK PANTHER OST Track “All The Stars”
Here’s our first listen to one of the tracks for Marvel’s Black Panther featuring Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar and SZA called “All the Stars”.
Listen to the song from the artist’s Vevo page:
The song definitely deals with a lot of themes you can easily translate in Black Panther. Lamar gets some shades of T’Challa right in his parts of the song.
Corrupted man’s heart what a gift, that’s how you find out you’re dealing with, a small percentage that I’m building with, I want the credit if I’m winning or I’m losing on my momma that’s the realest s***.
And here’s another one.
F*** you and all your expectations, I don’t even want your congratulations, I recognize your false confidence and calculated promises all in your conversations. I hate people that feel entitled, look at me crazy because I ain’t invite you.
Here’s the official press release from Marvel:
Internationally-celebrated Grammy® Award–winning global superstar Kendrick Lamar and Billboard Magazine’s Executive of the Year, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, are set to curate and produce “Black Panther: The Album.” The album will feature music from and inspired by Marvel Studios’ Black Panther film including the lead single, “All The Stars,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and label mate SZA, produced by Sounwave.
Lamar and Tiffith will collaborate with Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film. This will mark the first time that Lamar, whom Rolling Stone dubbed “the greatest rapper alive,” will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture.
This collaboration represents the first time in Marvel Cinematic Universe history that Marvel Studios will integrate multiple original recordings created specifically for the film.
Lamar was hand-picked by Coogler for this first film music collaboration. “I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film. I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store,” said Coogler.
