18 Popular Songs You Forgot Were Originally Written for Movies
“All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA, Black Panther
Black Panther was an instant phenomenon upon its release. Before it even hit theaters, though, its soundtrack, which comes from rapper Kendrick Lamar, was already proving formidable. Every song on the album is great, but “All the Stars” is the standout track.
It plays over the movie’s credits, and with good reason. It has a beauty that sticks with you, and Kendrick’s verses are excellent. The power vocals form SZA feel perfectly in-step with the world that Black Panther created. One of the year’s best films deserved a soundtrack that could match it, and with help from Kendrick Lamar, it found one.
