Black Panther's Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd get synth-heavy soundtrack single

Check out Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd's new song "Pray for Me" and the Black Panther: The Album tracklist below.

Black Panther: The Album (as well as Black Panther, the film) makes landfall next Friday (February 9th).

Kendrick is credited as the disc's executive producer.

"Pray For Me", produced by Sounwave, CuBeatz, Cardo and Matt Schaeffer, sounds like a bonus track off Weeknd's 2016 album Starboy: futuristic and fast-paced. "Who gon' pray for me?/Take my pain for me?/Save my soul for me?/Cause I'm alone, you see", the singer croons.

The Weeknd kicks off the song with haunting vocals: "I'm always ready for a war again, Go down that road again, It's all the same, I'm always ready to take a life again, You know I'll ride again". The album will features guest appearances from 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, Future, Travis Scott, Vince Staples, Khalid, ScHoolboy Q, and more.

Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong'o, opens nationwide February 16 from Marvel Studios and Disney, parent company of ABC News.

The middle-of-the-road results will likely prove inconsequential for a projected box office behemoth like Black Panther, but for listeners, it's a game of diminishing returns.
