Black Panther song: "Redemption Interlude" and "Redemption"
Like a number of artists featured on the Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick Lamar has worked with Zacari before, and clearly the two have a special relationship, as every collaboration between the singer and the hip-hop star comes out beautifully. The two musicians first worked together on the song “Love” from Lamar’s massive DAMN. album, which served as the third official single from the collection. “Love” stalled just one position shy of breaking into the top 10, and it still stands as Zacari’s only chart appearance. His own tunes are a fun mix of R&B and dance, and though he hasn’t posted a new song on Spotify since 2015, he’s been building a fanbase underground for the past few years. –Hugh McIntyre
