On Tuesday, Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment dropped the first music video from their soundtrack for Black Panther. The video for the song “All The Stars,” which features Lamar along with SZA, has been blowing up with over 6.6 million views as of this writing.
That’s because both the song and the accompanying video are truly works of art.
Prior to that we’d only caught bits and pieces of the Black Panther soundtrack through a few of the trailers like the “Rise” TV Spot…
As well as the “Pray” teaser…
On Thursday, Marvel dropped another video on social media that features a little more of the tremendous music that we will get to enjoy when the film finally premieres on February 16th.
Kendrick Lamar, TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, and director Ryan Coogler put their heads together for this album of music from and inspired by Black Panther. Along with TDE stars SZA, ScHoolBoy Q, and Jay Rock, the trio pulled artists from across the hip-hop spectrum. Future, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, and Vince Staples mingle with Sacramento spitter Mozzy and Bay Area crew SOB X RBE. The Weeknd, Jorja Smith, and Khalid represent R&B’s shining guard. And Kendrick destroys the five songs he’s featured on. Marrying sound and vision, a movement and a movie, Black Panther taps into Kendrick’s and T’Challa’s revolutionary spirit.
Give it a listen below.
