We’re just a few weeks away from experiencing Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and with Rihanna having just dropped the first single to the soundtrack “Lift Me Up” just last week, we’re now getting the full track listing for the album inspired by the highly anticipated film.
According to Pitchfork, the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack will be coming in at 19 cuts deep and feature artists from a few genres including the likes of Stormzy, Snow Tha Product featuring E-40, Alemán, Calle x Vida and many others. Wanting to combine a few cultures on a single soundtrack, the people behind the Wakanda Forever soundtrack knew how important it was to create a sound to match the picture that Coogler is blessing us with later this month.
Director Ryan Coogler, composer Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis (chief creative officer at Def Jam), and Dave Jordan produced the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack album. “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice,” Göransson said in a statement. “If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”
We. Can’t. Wait. For the film or the soundtrack to be honest… mostly the film though. Just sayin.’
