Kendrick Lamar is curating the original soundtrack for Marvel's next superhero installment, Black Panther.
Don't worry, I'll wait for you to calm down.
OK - so here's the album's first song (titled "All the Stars") by Lamar and SZA, to help you relax:
I'm not sure that calmed anyone down, to be honest.
After suggesting such news in his “LOVE.” video, it's now been revealed that director Ryan Coogler handpicked Lamar and the rapper's Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony Tiffith to both assemble and produce Black Panther's music. This should come as no surprise to any who've been paying attention, as the first trailers for Coogler's picture featured songs like “Legend Has It” by Run the Jewels and “BagBak” from Vince Staples.
You can pre-order the OST here (for less than $10), but the other artists and songs have yet to be released (though with Lamar at the controls, it's doubtful we have to worry about quality). Maybe the tunes will help you get through until February 16th, when Black Panther hits theaters.
