2018’s king and queen of music just came together in beautiful harmony for All the Stars, the lead track from yet-to-be-released Black Panther OST. Full of soaring synths and vocals from Top Dawg labelmates Kendrick and SZA, the lyrics span love, dreams and inspiration. The former has written, produced and curated the entire soundtrack -- a first for both parties, as Marvel, it seems, have never before featured entirely original recordings in their films.
Eagle-eyed fans saw the whole thing coming of course, after Kendrick snuck in a second-long teaser in his recent video for DAMN. track, Love. Yep, at 1:54 a clapperboard spells it all out with the words “B.Panther Soundtrack Coming Soon.” The much-anticipated film, due out in February, will star Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o and all signs are pointing to it being totally awesome.
“Marvel Studio’s Black Panther is amazing -- from its cast to its director,” Kendrick said in a statement. “The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan [the director] and Marvel’s vision.”
