However, the title of the track is not known yet.

Talking about his collaboration with Lamar, The Weeknd called him “a genius.”

He said: “I played him songs, the ‘Starboy’ theme, of course, which he incorporated into his verse. He would just walk around, we had food and he’s writing his verse in his head. He’d go to his phone, look at it a few, put it back in, start walking around. He then at one point went into the studio booth, closed the door and I could hear him yelling his verse.”

“Black Panther” soundtrack album is scheduled for a February 9 release, while the movie is set to open in India on February 16.
