Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Black Panther: The Album​​’ is streaming now

It features SZA, The Weeknd, Vince Staples, Anderson .Paak, and loads of other guests.

Alongside Top Dawg Entertainment’s head honcho Anthony Tiffith, Kendrick Lamar has curated the soundtrack for new film Black Panther. Showing in UK cinemas this week, the superhero movie is based on the Marvel comic of the same name.

Kendrick’s soundtrack, ‘Black Panther: The Album’ is streaming now, and as you’d expect from the musical heavyweight, it’s filled with huge guest spots. SZA, Anderson .Paak, The Weeknd, Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd, Schoolboy Q, Vince Staples, Future, and Khalid all feature. Additionally, Kendrick is credited as a composer or lyricist on virtually every track.

Earlier this week Kendrick shared the video for ‘All the Stars’ - his collaboration with SZA.
