Here’s how to listen to Kendrick Lamar’s epic Black Panther soundtrack online

The Black Panther movie has been long in the making, with Wesley Snipes first tossing his name into the hat to play the lead as far back as 1992. Now, in 2018, it’s finally here – as is a killer soundtrack courtesy of Kendrick Lamar. Here’s how to listen to it online.

Black Panther is a major character in the Marvel Universe and the new film is garnering rave reviews. The starring role is played by Chadwick Boseman, with a supporting cast of well-known actors such as Michael B. Jordan (Creed) and Daniel Kaluuya (of 2017’s Oscar-nominated hit Get Out).

But the cream on top of the production has to be Kendrick Lamar’s soundtrack, with his writing credits listed on all 14 songs and vocals on five of them. The vibrant, pulsating soundtrack features old favourite guests of Lamar’s, such as SZA, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Future, Jay Rock and Zacari.

Other entries come from James Blake, Anderson Paak and The Weeknd. Vince Staples’ track in particular knocks it out the park, with ‘Opps’ featuring his trademark laid back yet high-energy vibe.

Lamar has complimented the film, calling it ‘amazing’, while record label Top Dawg Entertainment said the collaboration with Black Panther made ‘perfect sense’.
