AceShowbiz - Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd will join forces once again. After their collaboration on "Sidewalks", K-Dot and the R'n'B singer will reunite for a collaboration off the upcoming "Black Panther" soundtrack, which is produced by K-Dot and Anthony "Top Dawg" fifth.
The Weeknd first teased the said collaboration to his followers on Instagram, sharing a picture of the comic book version of the superhero without a caption. An insider later confirmed to Complex that the two musicians are slated to collab on a song together on the album. However, it's still unclear what their collaboration will be called or when it will drop.
As mentioned above, K-Dot and The Weeknd have previously collaborated on "Sidewalks", one of the tracks off the Canadian singer's latest album "Starboy". The track was a huge hit among fans of the musicians, with many saying that it is the best track off the album.
Talking about his collaboration with the rapper, The Weeknd called the rapper "a genius." He said, "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."
"Black Panther" soundtrack album is scheduled for a February 9 release, while the movie is set to hit theaters on February 16. Prior to the album's release, K-Dot shared two tracks off the album. They were "All the Stars" featuring SZA and "King's Dead" featuring Jay Rock and Future. K-Dot also teased a Vince Staples-assisted track in the latest trailer for the movie. Around the 55-second mark, viewers could hear Vince spitting his bars.
