Kendrick Lamar Joins The Weeknd on New Track “Pray for Me,” Off ‘Black Panther: The Album’
Fresh off his big night at the 2018 Grammys, Kendrick Lamar is back in music mode. He's putting the finishing touches on the Black Panther: The Album to be exact. Today (Feb. 2), we get "Pray for Me," his collab with The Weeknd, a song off the upcoming project.
Abel takes charge on the new Matt Schaeffer, Cardo, Cubeat, and Sounwave-produced cut, which has an uptempo club feel, driven by steadily-paced drums. "Who gon’ pray for me? Take my pain for me? Save my soul for me? ‘Cause I’m alone you see,” he delivers.
K. Dot tackles the track spitting, "Life a living hell, puddles of blood in the streets/Shooters on top of the building, government aiding relief/Earthquake, the body drop, the ground breaks/The poor one with smoke lungs and Scarface/Who need a hero? (hero)/You need a hero, look in the mirror, there go he, hero."
The TDE rapper's involvement in the soundtrack was announced last month, after being teased in the video for "Love." The soundtrack will feature Kendrick, Mozzy, Travis Scott, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul, Anderson .Paak, Jay Rock, Future and more. The collection is slated to drop on Feb. 9.
