We’re about as hyped for the Kendrick Lamar-curated Black Panther: The Album as we are for the movie itself — and that’s saying a lot. K.Dot took to Twitter today to show off both the album’s enigmatic T’Challa claw pendant necklace-flossing cover and the full tracklist/participating artists:


BLACK PANTHER – Kendrick Lamar

ALL THE STARS – Kendrick Lamar & SZA

X – ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz & Saudi

THE WAYS – Khalid & Swae Lee

OPPS – Vince Staples & Yugen Blakrok

I AM – Jorja Smith


BLOODY WATERS – Ab-soul, Anderson Paak & James Blake

KING’S DEAD – Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future & James Blake


REDEMPTION – Zacari & Babes Wodumo

SEASONS – Mozzy, Sjava & Reason

BIG SHOT – Kendrick Lamar & Travis Scott

PRAY FOR ME – The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar

Although the exclusion of “Legend Has It” by Run the Jewels, heard in the first Black Panther trailer is a bit disappointing, the record still boasts more than a few artists that have us ready to head nod.

Schoolboy Q? Anderson Paak? A sure-to-be smooth ditty from Khalid & Swae Lee? The Weekend x Kendrick Lamar? All signs are pointing towards Black Panther: The Album being a worthy companion to the film and then some; the album drops on February 9th on digital formats and February 16th for physicals.
