Lauren Porter Feb, 20, 2018

In case you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a blockbuster Marvel film in theaters called Black Panther and we just can’t stop talking about it. 

Along with the star-studded cast including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kulaaya and a host of others, there are beautiful costumes from Oscar-nominated designer Ruth Carter and an amazing original soundtrack by Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE). 

In this episode of ESSENCE Now’s “We Need to Talk About…”, editors Lauren Porter and Sydney Scott break down their faves from “Black Panther, The Album” and argue for the 14-track project’s best song.
