Clocking in at almost-four minutes, "All the Stars" finds the TDE acts offering the attitude atop sleek production from Al Shux & Soundwave. While K. Dot keeps the energy strong with confrontational bars about perseverance, it's SZA's pop-charged chorus that really brings the track full circle. "This may be the night that my dreams might let me know/ All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer," she croons during the pulsating hook.
"Marvel Studios' Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture," Lamar said in a press release. "I'm truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel's vision."
Expect more from the Black Panther soundtrack in the coming weeks as the film opens nationwide on February 16. It stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett.
