‘Black Panther’ Album Has Reached Number 1 On iTunes

Black Panther Chadwick Bosmeman Marvel TIMEThe Black Panther soundtrack album has been met with critical praise and has now skyrocketed to the top of the iTunes charts.

The album, which was curated by Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Anthony Tiffith, is the first time Marvel has ever created a soundtrack for any of their films. The duo worked alongside director Ryan Coogler to perfectly curate an album that would hit all the right beats of the film.

Released this past Friday, a week before the film’s debut, the soundtrack has overtaken The Greatest Showman‘s soundtrack. The Hugh Jackman-led The Greatest Showman was at the top of the charts ever since it was released, but has clearly been overthrown by Marvel’s first musical effort. Behind The Greatest Showman is the soundtrack for the recently released Fifty Shades Freed. 

With hype for Black Panther growing every day, the album is sure to stay at the top of the charts for a while, especially after the movie is released into the wild.
