KENDRICK LAMAR, SZA – ‘All The Stars’ (Single Review)
“Love, let’s talk about love. Is it anything and everything you hoped for? Or do the feeling haunt you? I know the feeling haunt you…”
All The Stars is the new single collab by American rapper Kendrick Lamar and American RnB singer-songwriter SZA. The hit was produced/curated by Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Anthony Tiffith as a release for the upcoming Black Panther movie soundtrack. Since its release on January 4th, the audio clip on YouTube has racked up over eight million views and counting.
“This may be the night that my dreams might let me know all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer…”
Although we have seen these two particular artists collaborate countless times in the past, this four-minute track is quite simply a banging hit! With an eclectic, melodic electro production backing Lamar’s smooth rap and SZA’s sweet vocals, the track is rhythmic, catchy and full of soul with Lamar and SZA’s names written all over it!
“Tell me what you gon’ do to me, confrontation ain’t nothin’ new to me. You can bring a bullet, bring a sword, bring a morgue but you can’t bring the truth to me…”
2017 was a HUGE year for both Kendrick Lamar and SZA, both releasing albums (DAMN for Lamar and debut album, CTRL for SZA) with Grammy nominations already knocking at their doors, BUT 2018 is finally here and these two artists – both smashing their music charts respectively – have truly delivered with this track. What the rest of 2018 has in store for Kendrick Lamar and SZA, no one knows but if 2017 has anything to say, I dare say 2018 is going to be massive for their music.
All The Stars, Kendrick Lamar and SZA. Go check it out!
