Kendrick Lamar Teases ‘Black Panther’ Soundtrack in ‘Love’ Music Video


The California-born rapper teases his involvement in the movie in a scene that features a clapperboard which has the words, ‘B.Panther Soundtrack Coming Soon,’ written on it.

Yesterday, Kendrick Lamar premiered music video for “Love” featuring Zacari. While the Dave Meyers-directed clip looks like a normal music video at first glance, it appears that the rapper drops a few hints on the clip. Among them is his involvement in the upcoming Marvel superhero movie “Black Panther”.

At around the 01:54 mark, a clapperboard enters the frame. The words “B.Panther Soundtrack Coming Soon” are written on it. Some fans soon noticed the hint and shared it on social media, posting a picture of the said scene.

“As if the movie couldn’t get any blacker, Kendrick Lamar essentially confirmed that he is involved with the ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack. I love it,” a fan tweeted. Another wrote, “BLACK PANTHER SOUNDTRACK COMING SOON! Did you all see @kendricklamar’s visual for #LOVE? It’s so soft and pretty. Lovely, re-watching over and over.”

Another hint that Kendrick appears to drop on the clip is his fiancee Whitney Alford’s pregnancy. In one of the scenes, the rapper is seen sitting down in the middle of a room full of ladies, one of whom has her hands cupped around a baby bump. In that scene, unfortunately, viewers cannot see the face of the mystery woman.

But at the 02:47 mark, viewers get to see the identity of the pregnant woman, who bears a striking resemblance to Whitney. Many fans speculate on her pregnancy as Kendrick is known to share details about his personal life in his creative works.

Kendrick and Whitney started dating back when they were still in high school and got engaged in 2015. The 30-year-old rapper announced his engagement during his appearance on Power 105.1’s “Breakfast Club”. When asked about his engagement rumors, he simply answered, “Yeah, yeah, definitely.. I’m loyal to the soil.” The radio hosts then extended their congratulations, and Kendrick said, “I apperciate that.”
