AceShowbiz - "Black Panther" is just days away from hitting theaters across the United States, and Kendrick Lamar hypes it up with a music video for the lead track off the soundtrack album. The California-born spitter unveiled the visuals for "All the Stars" featuring SZA on Tuesday, February 6.
Directed by Dave Meyers and the little homies, the African-inspired clip begins with Kendrick surfing through a crowd of people before joining a group of children standing in front of a statue. There is also a scene where Kendrick dons a chic black shearling jacket while roaming around a snowy forest with a pack of actual black panthers.
SZA also makes an appearance in the nearly-four-minute clip. Teaming her pair of red trousers with a taffeta bustier, the songstress sings and dances amidst a cosmic vision of flaming stars. "This may be the night that my dreams might let me know," she sings. "All the stars approach you, all the stars approach you, all the stars approach you."
Produced by Kendrick and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith, the soundtrack to the Marvel superhero movie is due out on February 9. In late last month, Kendrick revealed the full track list of the album which includes collaborations with Vince Staples, The Weeknd and Travis Scott (II). Last week, he premiered his Weeknd-assisted track entitled "Pray for Me”.
"Marvel Studio's 'Black Panther' is amazing, from its cast to its director," the "Love." rapper said in a statement regarding his involvement in the soundtrack. "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 Ryan [Ryan Coogler] and Marvel's vision."
"Black Panther" is due out across the nation on February 16. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the movie stars Chadwick Boseman as the titular superhero and Lupita Nyong'o among others.
