Black Panther: The Album is a damn good album. Period. Not just a great soundtrack. Not just a few cool songs played over the end credits of a superhero movie, but an award worthy, from front to back masterpiece.
Kendrick Lamar curated/produced and contributed to all 14 tracks on the album. Lamar was asked to contribute a few songs for the soundtrack and promptly returned to burn the house down with the help of his friends and Top Dawg Entertainment labelmates.
If Black Panther is half as good as the soundtrack then it's safe to say the bar has been raised for superhero movies and movie soundtracks in general.
