Marvel's Black Panther Soundtrack

Katelyn Day, Staff Writer

Ever since Marvel’s biggest movie Black Panther hit theatres mid February, it has received a plethora of outstanding reviews.

To go along with the outstanding movie as a whole, another aspect of the film to receive high praise is the movie’s soundtrack. The soundtrack is primarily focused on African American musicians, due to the background of the film as a whole.

The biggest artist featured is rapper Kendrick Lamar with songs: “Black Panther,” “All The Stars” (featuring SZA), “King’s Dead” (featuring Jay Rock, Future, and James Blake), “Big Shot” with Travis Scott, and “Pray For Me” (featuring The Weeknd).

The album includes other artists such as Grammy nominee Khalid (featuring Swae Lee) in the song “The Ways,” and Vince Staples’ “Opps” with Yugen Blakrok.

There are other interludes such as “I Am” by Jorja Smith, “Paramedic!” by SOB X RBE, Zacari in “Redemption,” Mozzy, Sjava, and Reason in “Seasons” and lastly “Bloody Waters” by Ab-Soul, Anderson Paak, and James Blake.  

With the movie being primarily African American actors, the soundtrack included African American artists as well. The soundtrack has received many great reviews and the tracks truly fit with the theme of Black Panther as a whole.
