“Black Panther” isn’t just a hit in movie theaters.
The soundtrack album featuring “Pray for Me,” the monster hit from Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd, is number 1 today. The album sold 50,000 copies in downloads and CDs but get this– another 100,000 from streaming. The total is 156,000 copies.
The album has five or six more hits on it, too, with Khalid, SZA, and other artists– so look for it to have staying power during the movie’s lifetime in theaters.
Kendrick and SZA’s “All the Stars” is already the number 3 streamed song in the country.
