Kendrick Lamar will be producing and curating the Black Panther movie soundtrack along with TDE’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. Marvel Studios announced the news about Lamar being apart of the team that brings the Black Panther film alive. The first single by Kendrick and label mate SZA, “All The Stars”, was released with the news.
The director of the movie, Ryan Coogler, reached out personally to Kendrick to work on the project. In a press release Coogler says, “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.”
The collaboration is the first time Kendrick will be writing, performing, producing, and curating music for a film and one at a large scale like this. It is Marvel’s first soundtrack that will have original music.
“The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture,” Lamar said the release. “I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.” Top Dawg added, “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”
Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, and the soundtrack is due out February 9. A tracklist for the Black Panther movie soundtrack has yet to be announced.
