It is BLACK HISTORY MONTH and the highly anticipated movie of the year, Black Panther, will be released this Friday, February 16, 2018. The soundtrack, which has 14 tracks, was co-produced and co-written by 12-time Grammy winner, Kendrick Lamar and was released on Friday February 9, 2018.
Several of the tracks include vocals from different artists such as SZA, Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd, Khalid, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q, among others. Three tracks were already released prior to the entire soundtrack and those are All The Stars, King’s Dead and Pray For Me.
I’ve seen a few YouTubers review the soundtrack and I decided that I should get it myself and give it a listen. I knew of the songs that were already released but I never really listened to them. King’s Dead was one of the songs Kendrick did during his 2018 Grammy performance.
If you’re not sure at which part in his melody he performed this song, it was at that moment where the dancers clothed in red were falling down. I listened to All The Stars when the music video was released. And I will say that it is a pretty good visual, especially since it’s pretty centered around Africa (even though Wakanda is a fictional African country).
Overall the beats are very nice. There are a few slow tracks like The Ways where I can picture this song being played at like a kind of romantic part or maybe one of the ending credits song. Opps sounds almost like a speed chase kinda thing but it’s fast pace so it’s not necessarily going to be for a speed chase but probably for a high action scene.
If you do get the soundtrack, you’ll realize that at least 5 songs have his name as a main artist. The rest, Kendrick provides “behind the scenes” vocal. It is a really good soundtrack for the movie. The beats, the transitions, the vocals and the lyrics are all really superb and I can’t wait to hear them in the movie on Friday.
So that’s it for today. I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think about the soundtrack if you decide to listen to all of it. Make sure you go see Black Panther coming to a theater near you this Friday February 16. And Happy Black History Month.
