SINGLE REVIEW: Kendrick Lamar feat. SZA – All The Stars
There’s no point even trying to fight it, Kendrick Lamar is one of the biggest names in Hip-Hop right now. With a constant string of hits and a ridiculously loyal and growing fanbase the Californian rapper has begun to rival the likes of Drake, Kanye West and Jay-Z. He’s just been announced as the curator for the upcoming Black Panther movie soundtrack and to celebrate he’s dropped the first single which features hip-hops most exciting newcomer SZA. “All The Stars” is a pulsating synth meets hip-hop track that delivers a polished production and a slick hook that will have you vibing instantly. Kendrick leads the verses with a vocal distortion that you would expect to hear on a Daft Punk track before giving his usual polished rap delivery. But it is SZA who really steals the show on this track. Her hook is STRONG and provides the big euphoric moment this song needed. “This may be the night that my dreams might let me know. All the stars are closer”. It’s very cinematic and will have you throwing you arms in the air and wanting to dance. It really is just produced very well but you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Marvel movie soundtrack to be honest.
