For their fourth cinematic collaboration, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Coogler and Göransson set about creating an innovative soundscape where Göransson says, “The songs and the score are one.” Both artists have talked about this approach since their days attending the USC Film School, and it finally became a reality with them Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

In what became an enormous labor of love, Göransson spent over 2500 hours recording the score and soundtrack – which involved six studios, across three continents and five countries. During the film, the audience will hear over 250 musicians, two orchestras, two choirs and over 40 singers.

Coogler was closely involved in creating the music for the film, from co-writing lyrics on Rihanna’s track “Lift Me Up” to suggesting a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” performed by the singer/songwriter of Nigeria Tems and along with Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” for the movie’s viral trailer.

Göransson said, “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be a whole song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from mourning to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the film. That was the intention.”

Given that the story was inspired by Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures, recording sessions were set up in Lagos, Nigeria, and Mexico City, Mexico, as well as Abbey Road Studios in London. Producers worked with popular Lagos artists including Tems, who has become a bedrock of musical innovation. Additionally, the soundtrack features new rappers and artists from Mexico City including rapper Pat Boy, who raps entirely in Mayan.

While in Mexico City, Göransson worked closely with music archaeologist Alejandro Rojas to explore and research Mayan music. Attention was paid to instruments native to Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures when creating the soundscape.
