On February 2, "Pray for Me" by Lamar and The Weeknd was released as the album's third single. , Coogler had previously met with musician Kendrick Lamar and Anthony Tiffith of Top Dawg Entertainment to discuss each other's work and the potential for them to collaborate on a project.  Sounwave praised Marvel for giving Top Dawg Entertainment creative control over the album and for Coogler's initial decision to combine the Black Panther character with Lamar's music. Johnston praised the album, alongside the film, as "the ultimate celebration of black excellence.
 Music videos for each of the remixes were also released to Marvel Music's Vevo channel on YouTube.  Matt Miller of Esquire said the album was a "stunning moment in film history ... an absolute milestone", feeling that the fact that "these topics can even be breached on a [Disney] platform like this seems like progress might be possible. The 14-track soundtrack, produced by Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment CEO, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, features guest appearances from fellow TDE signees like SZA, Jay Rock, Ab Soul, as well as popular acts like The Weeknd, Khalid, and James Blake. Coogler felt the album became its own piece of art rather than just a tie-in to the film. Views on YouTube are spread across owned and earned clocking over 6M views over 48-hours. He went on tour with Senegalese musician Baaba Maal, and recorded performances by Maal and other African musicians for use in the score.  After Senegal, Göransson went to South Africa and spent a week at the International Library of African Music in Grahamstown listening to thousands of recordings of music from different African tribes, and recording music on hundreds of instruments that "don't really exist anymore." Several times, Marvel executives questioned whether the score was leaning too close to traditional Western music only to have Göransson explain that the music they were questioning was recorded by traditional musicians in Africa and that it had simply been coopted by Western culture from Africa. Atlantic Records president Kevin Weaver said that "when the right music is aligned to the right media, especially with these new means of music distribution, primarily streaming, it's created a whole new world for soundtracks that didn't previously exist."  Shortly after, a new trailer for the film featured "Opps" by Lamar and Vince Staples.
 This "ancestral theme" also serves as a theme for the relationship between T'Challa and Killmonger, with a broken down, "tiny piece" of the string motif heard in Killmonger's theme to show that "it's all related in a way, just as [the characters] are related by blood"; Göransson actually developed this familial theme for all the characters from the Killmonger flute motif, using part of the music originated by Ba. " Göransson then returned to Los Angeles where he planned to combine the African music he had discovered with his usual orchestral and modern production techniques to create the final score. It was praised by many critics as a milestone for film soundtracks due to its ideas and lyrics, but it was considered by some to be weaker than his solo work. He noted that a lot of the artists who collaborated on the soundtrack did so without knowing what the film was, agreeing to work with Lamar rather than on a tie-in to Black Panther. Göransson's score was released as Black Panther (Original Score) by Hollywood Records on February 16, and received praise for being unique among Marvel Cinematic Universe scores due to its authentic African elements and thematic material, though the album presentation was criticized as too long. Black Panther: The Album looks on track to sell 100,000 units by the end of the week, no small feat in an era where music consumption is down.Earning the top spot will make it only the second soundtrack of the year to accomplish such a feat, with The Greatest Showman naturally claiming the previous spot.  Luke Martin of Fortitude Magazine said the score "blows other Marvel soundtracks out of the water", calling it "rich" in African sounds that help it add "gravity to every aspect of the story, rooted in an emotional context."
, Andy Kellman gave the soundtrack four stars out of five for AllMusic, calling it an "unprecedented convergence of the mainstream film industry with an uncompromising musician thriving commercially and artistically." Sounwave described these two months as the most vital during the making of the album.  Göransson recorded many different elements of the score at Baal's studio in Senegal, including Baal himself for his part in the "Wakanda" song. Last week, “Insecure” star Issa Rae shared an epic reaction to seeing Black Panther at its world premiere.  SOB x RBE had been approached by Lamar's manager Dave Free, and found that Lamar had extensively researched the group. I'm so grateful".  Jonathan Broxton for Movie Music UK credited Göransson for his research and commitment to faithfully conveying African music in the score, rather than just using "indeterminate ethnic drumming"; he suggested that this could be "all for nothing if the final score doesn't act as a good and appropriate film score in its own right", but "Thankfully, Göransson's composing chops are strong, and as a result the score for Black Panther soars."
 Lamar contacted singer Khalid while he was performing with Lorde in Norway, and asked if he wanted to work on the project.
Göransson worked with several other artists to create the remixes.  Other themes composed for the film include one for T'Challa's sister Shuri, which was played on a balafon, and one for the Dora Milaje warriors, consisting of a group of Senegalese women 'yipping' which Coogler described as a "chu chu" sound.
The piano then transitions to strings to show the suffering the character has endured, inspired by the works of Johann Sebastian Bach.  Writing for Vice, Robert Christgau called the music "sneakily experimental pop-rap" and credited Lamar for "marking every [song] with a verse or chorus or hook defined by the least regal of the great rap flows, unassumingly slurred while making every word count".  Ba's performance revolved around a root note that Göransson gave him, and included singing, screaming, and laughing into the flute as he played it, with one of the words screamed being "Killmonger". For Talking “S**t” + Rejecting Verzuz Challenge, "There's nothing better than some friendly trolling between Busta/Tip" -Cyrus, DaBaby’s 10 Most Successful Songs Of 2020 – SOHH Far, "Baby has become a certified rap heavyweight and is getting his props!" He called this presentation a shame, feeling that the score had the potential to earn a four star (out of five) score but in reality deserved two stars due to the album length. A huge component for the upcoming flick’s massive popularity is how much social media attention it has received. Dot’s new Black Panther The Album‘s monstrous first-week sales projects have surfaced.
, Göransson had initially approached the score with the idea that music in Wakanda could be anything due to its being a fictional country, but discovered that "music from Africa is a language" used for storytelling, with every instrument and different musical rhythm given meaning, and wanted to ensure that this was reflected since the country is still clearly in Africa.
A particularly important group for Coogler was SOB x RBE, who come from the San Francisco Bay Area where Coogler grew up. " Larry Bartleet also gave the album four stars in his review for NME. Black Panther: The Album serves both purposes well.  He noted that Göransson took Marvel outside of their comfort zone on the film, but they were willing to defer to him after all of the research he did. He did think it was close to being "overly lengthy" on album, but felt the music overcame this in its "dynamic and vibrant" textures, combining Hollywood heroism with authentic Senegalese music to become a score that Wilson felt could not be accused of lacking in personality as other MCU scores have been.  After completing work on the album, Lamar praised the producers and artists who worked with him on it for allowing him to "execute a sound for the soundtrack". He said that the film is set in the modern day rather than the time the character was first introduced to comics, and "we want the whole soundtrack to sound like that too. Because of the film's set release schedule, Lamar had less time to work on the album than he usually would. " Alex Petridis of The Guardian called the soundtrack "an enjoyable interstitial release rather than an essential one" but noted that this could be due to the high standards set by Lamar's previous work.  The latter was supported by a female choir from London. #IssaRae with the #BlackPanther co-sign pt 1, A post shared by SOHH (@sohhdotcom) on Jan 30, 2018 at 12:50pm PST, A post shared by SOHH (@sohhdotcom) on Jan 30, 2018 at 12:52pm PST, Black PantherBlack Panther The AlbumKendrick LamarTop Dawg Entertainment.
