Kendrick Lamar and SZA are African royalty and shine with all the stars, in the regally sleek and stunning new Dave Meyers and the little homies, co-directed video for their Black Panther collaboration, All the Stars.
The Grammy-winning team behind HUMBLE., LOYALTY. and so many other Kendrick visuals, once again bringing truly great stunning imagery inspired by the upcoming highly-anticipated Marvel superhero film, to bring the record truly to life.
As the stunning new clip, which was premiered earlier today through Vevo, shows that the TDE stars are not only Hip-Hop royalty, but African royalty as well. King Kendrick being hoisted above a crowd of supporters and even later sitting on his thrown, as a sea of tribal dancers surround him in the Kingdom of Wakanda. Which is the fictional home of the Black Panther, based off of Africa. K-Dot even walking with literal black panthers at one point.
While the regally stunning visual also finds SZA literally singing and dancing among a sea of shining stars and galaxies in her stunningly colorful purple and red African-inspired dresses, before later herself also being joined by tribal dancers. She then transitions into blue and white and green African-inspired clothing, as she joins the dancers in an African-inspired like jungle.
The latter part of the clip finding both Lamar and SZA in literal gold royalty, in an elaborately-decorated gold pool, which sees her in a very regally stunning gold one-piece swimsuit and K-Dot in a white shirt and black pants with a mostly gold African-inspired headscarf. The African and Black Panther-inspired theme of the very stunning visual playing out till the very end and that you have to see to believe.
The collaboration being one of the many star-studded features inspired by the highly-anticipated Black Panther film, which is due in theatres next Friday, Feb. 16th. While the actual Kendrick, TDE and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, curated and produced soundtrack, Black Panther: The Album, which this song/visual is from is due this Friday Feb. 9th.
