    The full tracklist for Kendrick Lamar's Black Panther soundtrack album was revealed a few days ago and now K Dot has dropped a new song with The Weeknd ahead of the release date next Friday. Taking on the role of curator and producer for the album, Kendrick has recruited a star-studded lineup, already releasing "All Of The Stars" with SZA and "King's Dead" with Jay Rock, Future, and James Blake over the past month.

    "Pray For Me" features The Weeknd vocalizing over a minimalist beat, not far removed from the sound of his 2016 single "Starboy". Kendrick pops up briefly to deliver a verse, solid as ever, but the track is undoubtedly a Weeknd song featuring Kendrick. The beat is dark and minimalist, with menacing detuned 808s, but the swelling synths in the chorus add a real 80s cinematic feel, and it's not hard to imagine this one playing as the credits roll.

    The full soundtrack will be available next Friday, February 9th, with Black Panther arriving in theaters the following week on February 16th. Kendrick will feature on five of the album's fourteen tracks and you can see the full list of contributors in the tracklist below.
