Two of the most prominent young voices on today’s music scene have a prestigious accolade to add to their growing lists of accomplishments.
Hip-hop superstar Kendrick Lamar and R&B starlet SZA were among the names announced as nominees in the 2019 Golden Globe Awards Best Original Song category early Thursday morning.
The Top Dawg Entertainment labelmates teamed up earlier this year for the platinum-selling single, “All The Stars,” which is the second featured song on the Black Panther soundtrack. Lamar himself was reportedly hand-picked by the film’s director, Ryan Coogler, to serve as the soundtrack’s executive producer.
The Golden Globe nomination is the first for both Lamar and SZA, who first performed the song live earlier this year at Coachella. The visual for the track was released in early February and has garnered over 178 million views on YouTube to date.
Black Panther also earned two additional Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Original Score.
Congratulations to Kendrick and SZA!
