With nine days to go for the worlwide release of Marvel's latest superhero film Black Panther, Kendrick Lamar and SZA have released a visually stunning music video for 'All the Stars.'

The lead single from the Ryan Coogler-directed movie's soundtrack, 'All the Stars' finds the rapper perched on a boat among a sea of people and walk through a forest fittingly filled with black panthers as SZA dances in front of a cosmic background. The video is filled with lush African-inspired visual imagery and shares the aesthetic of Black Panther's fictional nation of Wakanda.

SZA's vocals outshine even Kendrick's on the song especially as the R&B songstress sings and spins around among the stars singing the catchy chorus: "All the stars approach you, all the stars approach you, all the stars approach you."

The video was directed by Dave Meyers and the little homies.

Curated and produced by Kendrick, TDE, and the label’s CEO Anthony 'Top Dawg' Tiffith, the Black Panther soundtrack album is set to drop on 9 February. The album also features other artists like Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Future, Anderson .Paak, 2 Chainz and Vince Staples.

The movie stars Chadwick Boseman as T‘Challa, the titular hero, and also features Lupita Nyong‘o, Daniel Kaluuya, Michael B Jordan, Danai Gurira and Angela Bassett.

Black Panther, out in theatres on 16 February, has earned rave early reviews with many lauding it as "the best Marvel movie so far, by far."
