Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) have finally released the tracklist for Black Panther.
It was announced earlier this month that the rapper and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith would curate the soundtrack for the highly-anticipated film, working with director Ryan Coogler to create music specific to the film.
Lamar tweeted the tracklist along with the soundtrack’s release date, Feb. 9, on Wednesday and fans went wild.
The soundtrack features TDE artists SZA, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q along with Future, Jorja Smith, Khalid, and Vince Staples.
The announcement comes after Lamar’s stellar Grammy-opening performance, which featured U2 and Dave Chappelle. The rapper took home four awards during the ceremony, including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for “Humble.”
Coogler said of his decision to work with Lamar and TDE for the soundtrack, “I am honored 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.”
Neither can we.
