The hotly-anticipated Black Panther soundtrack is out now. As uDiscover Music recently reported, Kendrick Lamar has curated and produced the soundtrack album to Marvel Studios’ Black Panther movie along with Anthony ‘Top Dawg’ Tiffith.
In addition to the previously released ‘All the Stars’ and ‘King’s Dead,’ Black Panther: The Album includes three more new songs with Lamar involvement: ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Big Shot’ (with Travis Scott), and ‘Pray For Me’ (with The Weeknd). Other notable contributors include James Blake (with Ab-Soul and Anderson .Paak), Vince Staples, Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, Schoolboy Q, and Sacramento rapper Mozzy, whom Lamar shouted out during his Best Rap Album acceptance speech.
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Kendrick Lamar said. “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 [director] Ryan [Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”
The record features plenty of big names, including Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott. However, rumours that Beyoncé would feature after she wore Black Panther-themed accessories to the Grammys proved to be unfounded.
The full tracklist for the Black Panther Soundtrack is as follows:

Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Saudi: ‘X’
