Black Panther is busy snatching souls across America, and the Marvel film isn't even officially out yet in theaters. From the star-studded Hollywood premiere to campaigns around the country funding black children in economically poor communities the opportunity to go see the movie in theaters, Ryan Coogler's flick is on its way to being the film of 2018. And its soundtrack could very well be the album of 2018 as well.

Today, Kendrick Lamar and SZA released a stunning visual for their song "All the Stars." The song is one of 14 produced by Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment for Black Panther The Album, the film's official soundtrack. The video begins with Lamar in a boat riding atop a sea of outreached arms. A thunderstorm rages on, and we transition to a removed galaxy in the shape of Africa. Once we zoom in, we see SZA dancing in the midst of ethereal stars as they becomes immersed in an African village where Kendrick watches locals dance and bombs blast overhead until he decides to wander into a desolate forest. The tree stumps are bare, and yes, actual black panthers charge forward with him.

Take in the full visual for "All The Stars," directed by Dave Meyers & the little homies, in all its brilliance below.
