Kendrick Lamar Teases Black Panther Soundtrack Clue In "LOVE." Video
Can February hurry and get here already?
The TDE family dropped visuals to our favorite tracks Thursday (Dec.), with Kendrick Lamar giving us a hint about his role in the Black Panther soundtrack.
In the "LOVE." video, Kendrick and co-director Dave Meyers cleverly place a clapperboard at the 1:54 mark reading, "“B.Panther soundtrack coming soon.”
Back in July, Lamar's track "DNA." was used in the second teaser for the Ryan Coogler-directed film, a decision the entire cast supported. "As soon as I heard it on his album for the first time I said, 'They should use that song,'" Chadwick Boseman said during Comic-Con. "I just thought it would fit. I didn't know if they'd do it or not, but I thought it was perfect."
Coogler also felt Lamar words on the track were fitting for the world of Wakanda. "The lyrics are amazing -- a lot of Kendrick's are," Coogler said. "It's actually oddly literal for our trailer's purposes -- and I think a lot of the cultural things we're dealing with in Wakanda are in the zeitgeist in the African American community."
We're glad everyone is on board for a Kendrick-filled soundtrack. Other acts on the soundtrack include Vince Staples and a remix of Gil Scott Heron's "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
