Carson’s Pick of the Week: The Weeknd ft Kendrick Lamar ‘Pray For Me’

February 17, 2018

When The Weeknd got the chance to be part of the Black Panther soundtrack, curated and co-produced by Kendrick Lamar for Marvel’s first movie with a black superhero as the lead character, he took the job.

‘Pray For Me’ lays sonically with The Weeknd’s Daft Punk-influenced Starboy era music. Lyrically, the song confronts the challenges that come with the role of protector, humanizing the superhero and those who wager their lives for the sake of peace, safety, and justice.
