In addition to Rihanna’s contribution ‘Lift Me Up‘, which was co-written with Tems (who, separately, has a cover of ‘No Woman No Cry’), the official soundtrack also features songs by Fireboy DML, Ckay, E-40 and Rema.

The soundtrack album has been produced by the film’s director Ryan Coogler along with the composer Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis (chief creative officer at Def Jam) and Dave Jordan.

Göransson said in a statement [via Pitchfork]: “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story.

“Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”

The soundtrack for the 2018 movie featured music by Kendrick Lamar, SZA, The Weeknd, Anderson .Paak, Jorja Smith, James Blake and more.
