With a little over a month left until the highly anticipated Black Panther film, TDE’s Kendrick Lamar & SZA team up for the soundtrack’s lead single, “All the Stars.”
Kendrick hinted at his work with the Black Panther film when the movie’s titled appeared on a clapperboard in his “LOVE.” video. Sonically, the track leans more towards SZA’s discography yet, Kendrick still lays down a solid 16, as expected, touching on his dislike of entitled individuals. SZA handles the hook and also lays down a verse of her own quickly discussing a toxic love she struggles to detach herself from.
K. Dot & SZA collaborations have come sporadically throughout their careers, previously working together on SZA’s “Babylon,” “Doves in the Wind,” Jay Rock’s “Easy Bake,” and Kendrick’s “Untitled 04 | 08.14.2014.”
Stay tuned for the complete soundtrack, produced Kendrick and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, set to drop together with film, premiering Feb. 16th.
