Babes Wodumo, The Weeknd, Sjava and More Appear on Kendrick Lamar-Produced 'Black Panther' Soundtrack

February can't get here soon enough.

'Black Panther' hits theaters in just a couple weeks, and we seriously cannot wait. But, before then, we have the Kendrick Lamar and TDE-produced soundtrack to look forward to.

The multiple grammy-winning rapper shared the cover art and 14-song tracklist for the project on Wednesday, and it's filled with features from some of our favorite artists.

South African artist Babes Wodumo appears on the track "Redemption" along with frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator Zacari. South African soul singer Sjava will also appear on the album as well as Yugen Blakrok and Saudi.

The album also features The Weeknd, Sza, Travis Scott, Future, James Blake, 2 Chainz, Jorja Smith and other big name artists, including TDE label mates Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q.

To put it quite simply, the tracklist is fire, and it's pretty cool to see that artists from the continent are well represented.

Kendrick Lamar released the soundtrack's lead single "All the Stars" earlier this month. Hear it below.

Black Panther the Album drops on February 9, just a week before the film's release. This is about to be the best Black History Month ever!
