Kendrick Lamar Reveals Tracklist & Release Date For “Black Panther” Soundtrack

On January 29, Marvel Studios hosted an early premiere of Black Panther ahead of its February 16 United States release. One of the most anticipated films of 2018, the superhero flick is bound to be a blockbuster success, thanks in no small part to its cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker are just a few of the megawatt names attached.

Much like the 2016 Black superhero-inspired Netflix series Luke Cage, Black Panther has cinephiles and Hip-Hop heads alike excited due to a soundtrack bubbling with Rap talent. As previously reported by Ambrosia For Heads, Kendrick Lamar (and, by extension, T.D.E.) will serve as executive producer on the film’s soundtrack, which is buoyed by “All the Stars,” his collaboration featuring SZA. Today (January 31), Kendrick shared the full details of the soundtrack’s track listing and release date on Twitter:

The official soundtrack album arrives February 9, and the track list (and featured artists) follows:

Kendrick Lamar – “Black Panther”
Kendrick Lamar, SZA – “All the Stars”
ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Saudi – “X”
Khalid, Swae Lee – “The Ways”
