After dropping two of the best albums of 2017 with DAMN. and Ctrl, respectively, Kendrick Lamar and SZA kickstart the new year in the best way possible by teaming up for a new song. “All the Stars” isn’t necessarily a precursor to what the TDE pair have in store for us in 2018; instead, it’s the first release from the upcoming Black Panther soundtrack, which Kendrick will “curate and produce” alongside Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture,” Kendrick said in a statement. “I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.” Black Panther hits theaters on February 16.
