Black Panther, set to be released on February 16, is already one of the most anticipated movies of 2018.
As we get closer to the date, Marvel has announced that Grammy Award-winning artiste Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment CEO, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith will curate and produce “Black Panther: The Album” with music from and inspired by the Marvel Studios film “Black Panther.”
Kendrick Lamar and label mate SZA teamed up for lead single “All the Stars” from the upcoming soundtrack.
Lamar was picked for the project by director Ryan Coogler, who said in the statement, “I am honoured 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 revealed, “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 honoured to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan [Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”
Top Dawg added, “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”
Recall that a Nigerian Sci-Fi author had also announced that she will be writing a 3-part story for the movie for Marvel.
