If there's an upcoming movie we're terribly excited to see, it's Black Panther. Not only has the Marvel superhero phenomenon taken over the fashion world, but it's quickly taking over the world of music as well, releasing a star-studded soundtrack that has rightfully captured our attention. And speaking of the film's soundtrack, Kendrick Lamar and SZA just dropped the first music video for its lead single "All the Stars."
Directed by Dave Meyers ("Loyalty," "Drew Barrymore") & the little homies, the clip features Lamar navigating through a world that appears both biblical and otherworldly before venturing out into other rich colorscapes. It's the Africa that has always existed: gorgeous, rich, and powerful.
The clip also gave us some stand-out fashion moments, much like the looks we saw on the Black Panther purple carpet. Several extras don traditional African garments like the dashiki paired with ankle-length pants and Converse All-Stars. Others in the vid wear intricate head wraps and African tribal makeup in feather-embellished ensembles. All the while, SZA twirls throughout a flurry of stars (Van Gogh could never), before serving up an iconic pop diva/laying-on-the-floor look for her delivery of the song's second verse.
But why go on? See it all for yourself, below.
