Kendrick and SZA released the first visual for the Black Panther soundtrack. The video was directed by Dave Myers & the little homies, who have directed all the videos for Kendrick’s Damn. album thus far.
A lot of times when a music video is made for a song from a movie soundtrack, its usually just filled with clips of the movie. However, Dave Myers & the little homies did not take that shortcut and created a visual that kept with the spirit of Black Panther will its African influences, but still is able to stand as a video on its own.
My favorite scene is the gold room. It definitely plays a trick with the eyes will all the layers, and you aren’t sure what is physical and what is digital.
