The Weeknd teams with Kendrick Lamar on “Pray for Me,” a song from the upcoming project, ‘Black Panther: The Album.’
Over mystical, synth-driven production from Matt Schaeffer, Cardo, Cubeatz, and Sounwave, Abel searches for understanding with transporting vocals. “Tell me, who’s gon see me for myself / When this life is all I know,” he sings.
“Pray For Me” notably marks the second collaboration between The Weeknd and Lamar, following “Sidewalks” from the former’s multi-platinum, chart-dominating 2016 opus, Starboy [XO/Republic Records].
‘Black Panther: The Album’ is curated and produced by Lamar, TDE, and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, and features appearances from SZA, Jorja Smith, Anderson.Paak, Future, ScHoolboy Q, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Khalid, Swae Lee, Vince Staples, Jay Rock, James Blake, and more.
