In The Que: "Black Panther: The Album" music review

February 13, 2018

Throughout the years, we have seen plenty of great movies, with great soundtracks. But, it seems like the good soundtrack days have faded away. Some of my top soundtracks are from the movies Juice, Friday, Boyz N the Hood, Bulworth, Boomerang, Belly and more. Let's not speak too soon, because Top Dawg Entertainment is in charge of the soundtrack for the new Black Panther movie. Let's see what they can cook up.

Black Panther: The Album is the soundtrack for the new Black Panther movie. It features an all-star roster consisting of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, 2 Chainz, Khalid, Swae Lee, Vince Staples, Future, The Weeknd, Travis Scott and many more. The first single off Black Panther: The Album is the Kendrick Lamar and SZA collaboration titled All The Stars. Sounwave, and Al Shux produced this track. I think this one might receive a Grammy nomination. The song X has the bounce that you are looking for. With Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and Schoolboy Q you can't go wrong. "Are you on ten yet", is the question Kendrick ask in the hook. My answer would be most definitely. I'm probably on eleven. Let your ears hear this one. Pray For Me is the second single off Black Panther: The Album. The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar beautifully murder this song. It reminds me of the song Starboy by The Weeknd. Doc Mckinney, and Frank Dukes produced this masterpiece. It's should receive a Grammy nomination as well.

Production credits goes to SounWave, Kendrick Lamar, !llmind, Al Shux, BadBadNotGood, Ludwig Göransson, DJ Dahi, Cubeatz, Robin Hannibal, Mike Will Made-It, Teddy Walters, Hykeem Carter, Scribz Riley, Kurtis Mckenzie, Cardo, Frank Dukes and Matt Schaeffer. They all did an incredible job. This right here, should set the standard for future soundtracks.
