Thursday night, Kendrick Lamar dropped off the gorgeous music video for his Damn track "Love" featuring Zacari. The reception for the video, which was directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies, seemed pretty positive.
Folks really want to cop the “Lovely” merchandise that was featured in the visuals.
Some savvy music video consumers noticed that the visuals contained a quick hint that new Kendrick music is on the way.
At around the 1:54 mark a clapperboard enters the frame. The words "B.Panther Soundtrack Coming Soon" are written on it. It would then seem that Kendrick Lamar will have a hand in the soundtrack for the upcoming Ryan Coogler-directed Marvel film, Black Panther. The movie has a star-studded cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker.
It looks like Kendrick might be joining Vince Staples, whose song "BagBak" is featured in a trailer for Black Panther, for the film's soundtrack. Some new Kendrick Lamar music is always a good thing. Staples and Lamar previously collaborated on the track "Yeah Right" off Vince's second studio album Big Fish Theory.
Black Panther will hit theaters on Feb. 16.
