It’s no secret that Black Panther is going to be the biggest Marvel movie ever. From trailers, music, the cast and more, the hype for the Ryan Coogler directed film has reached a fever pitch. Now with only a week left until the film hits theaters, another aspect of the film has garnered incredible buzz: the film’s soundtrack, helmed by none other than Grammy-Award winner Kendrick Lamar.
The much anticipated Black Panther soundtrack arrived late last night and it is an all-out banger! Clocking in a 14 tracks, Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment didn’t spare any expense in crafting one of the year’s best releases. The album features TDE’s heavy hitters: Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul along with the likes of Travis Scott, Future, James Blake, Anderson .Paak, SOB x RBE, Mozzy, Vince Staples, Jorja Smith, Khalid, The Weeknd and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.
Naturally, Twitter came with high praise for the new album.
