Ever since the initial Black Panther trailer was released to Run The Jewel’s ‘Legend Has It,’ fans —myself included — were ecstatic to find out what the future soundtrack for T’Challa’s first solo outing could look like.
We’ve known for weeks that Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar — along with his record label Top Dawg Entertainment — would be producing the soundtrack for Ryan Coogler‘s MCU debut.
Now, the rapper has taken to Twitter to share the entire tracklist for the impending soundtrack release.

The fourteen-song soundtrack features many of today’s top hip-hop artists including The Weeknd and 2 Chainz.
Kendrick himself appears five of the tracks — including ‘King’s Dead’ and ‘Pray For Me,’ both of which have already been released.
Notably absent from the tracklist, however, are the songs we heard in the first two Black Panther trailers — Run The Jewel‘s ‘Legend Has It’ and Vince Staples’ ‘BagBak,’ although Staples appears on the tracklist alongside Yugen Blakrok on ‘Opps.’
In case you’ve missed out, here are the three things that have been released from the soundtrack:
‘All The Stars’ – Kendrick Lamar, SZA
‘King’s Dead’ – Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, James Blake
‘Pray For Me’ – The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar
Black Panther: The Album is set for release via Interscope Records on Friday, February 9 while the movie itself comes out a week later.
