After being teased in his latest music video, we know what Kendrick Lamar’s contribution to the Black Panther soundtrack will be.
Lamar and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, are set to curate and produce Black Panther: The Album.
The album will feature music from and inspired by the film including the lead single, “All The Stars,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and labelmate SZA, which was released Thursday.
Lamar and Tiffith will collaborate with Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film.
This collaboration represents the first time in Marvel Cinematic Universe history that Marvel Studios will integrate multiple original recordings created specifically for the film.
Lamar was apparently hand-picked by Coogler for this first film music collaboration. Coogler said, “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.”
Lamar said: “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. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”
