Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd have released ‘Pray For Me’, their collaboration for the forthcoming Black Panther soundtrack, which can be heard here.
The classy and futuristic Pray For Me kicks off with The Weeknd’s silky vocals, before a huge flow directly leads into Lamar’s flow on the second verse.
As uDiscover Music already reported, Lamar is not only featured on Pray For Me, but he is also producing the entire Marvel soundtrack, as well as collaborating with SZA on ‘All The Stars’, and ‘King’s Dead’.
The record features also features plenty of other big names, including Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott.
However, as uDiscover also previously reported, that rumours that Beyoncé would feature after she wore Black Panther-themed accessories to the Grammys are unfounded.
Earlier this week, Black Panther made its debut in Los Angeles, and early reaction indicates that Marvel have another huge hit on their hands.
As soon as the review embargo dropped, critics wasted no time in heaping huge praise on Black Panther. The comic book adaptation recently premiered in Los Angeles and stars Chadwick Boseman as King T’Challa, the beleaguered leader of the fictional kingdom of Wakanda. Some critics have even hailed the film as Marvel’s greatest movie to date.
“Black Panther is the best MCU movie ever. I was blown away from start to finish and I’m not even being biased. This was by far the best marvel movie to date. Thank you, Ryan Coogler!” Twitter account Geeks Of Colour wrote.
Fandango’s Erik Davis said: “Black Panther is exceptional – the James Bond of the MCU. You’ve seen nothing like this in a superhero movie – it’s bold, beautiful & intense, but there’s a depth & spiritualness that is unlike anything Marvel has ever done. It’s 100% African & it is dope.”
Black Panther is due to arrive in cinemas on 12 February.
