Marvel’s Black Panther is one of the most highly anticipated movies for 2018 and the soundtrack is already gearing up to be just as incredible!

The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar have dropped their collaboration from the soundtrack called ‘Pray For Me’.

Kendrick revealed the full track list for The Black Panther: The Album on his Twitter, which features collaborations with Khalid, SZA, 2 Chainz, Future, Travis $cott and more.

 

 

We could kind of see The Weeknd’s involvement with the movie coming because just a few weeks ago he posted the following to his Instagram page,

Kendrick also teased his involvement with Black Panther in the music video for his song, ‘Love’.

 

 

He would then go on to confirm that he was producing the movie’s soundtrack and he and SZA teamed up for the first single, ‘All The Stars’.

 

 

Kendrick would have this to say about the movie, “Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director…The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside [director Ryan Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”

In the past, The Weeknd has praised King Kendrick saying, “He’s a genius…I played him songs, the ‘Starboy’ theme, of course, which he incorporated into his verse. He would just walk around, we had food, and he’s writing his verse in his head. He’d go to his phone, look at it a few, put it back in, start walking around. He then at one point went into the studio booth, closed the door, and I could hear him yelling his verse.”

 

 

The two also collaborated on the song, ‘Sidewalks’ which appeared on The Weeknd’s Starboy album.

 

 

Black Panther: The Album is set to be released on February 9th, and the movie will hit theaters on the 16th.
