Kendrick Lamar along with Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and Top Dawg Entertainment have since announced their part in curating and producing Black Panther: The Album. The first single, “All The Stars,” featuring K-Dot and SZA was released today (January 4).
“This may be the night that my dreams might let me know all the stars are closer,” sings SZA before K-Dot follows up with his verse. “Tell me what you gon’ do to me,” he raps. “Confrontation ain’t nothin’ new to me / You can bring a bullet, bring a sword, bring a morgue / But you can’t bring the truth to me.”
Commissioning a soundtrack full of original content is a first for Marvel. K-dot is also embarking on a new endeavor with the project as well and he was hand selected by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. “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,” said Coogler. “I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store.”
Check out the single below. Stay tuned for Black Panther in theatres February 16.
