"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever": Doja Cat, The Weeknd And Other Singers Could Work On The Soundtrack

On the occasion of Disney Investor Day, President of Marvel Studios - Kevin Feige has revealed some interesting details on the development of the sequel to Black Panther, which is titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Accordingly, he has officially confirmed that T'Challa will not be played by a new actor out of respect for the late Chadwick Boseman, and that the film will continue to explore the world and characters of Wakanda that were introduced to the audience in the 2018 movie.

The filming of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was interrupted to allow Letitia Wright (Shuri) to fully recover from the injury that occurred a few months ago which, apparently, was more serious than expected. After the accident, Wright moved to London where she underwent extensive physical therapy while production continued without her. According to reports, director Ryan Coogler already shot all possible material that did not involve her character. However, due to the difficulty of moving forward without the actress being physically present on the set, Marvel Studios has decided to organize a new plan of filming that will begin in late January in Atlanta and, needless to say, will include the participation of the actress.
According to what was reported exclusively by Metro, Marvel Studios will soon invite Doja Cat, The Weeknd, Solange and Stormzy to take part in shaping the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and it seems that "there’s talk of a few of them making cameos but that’s still being discussed".
In particular, according to an insider, rapper and singer Doja Cat "is one of the artists who is in line to perform on the soundtrack because of her South African heritage", while "The Weeknd, Solange and Stormzy are also being considered as the producers want a wide range of smash hit artists to make this soundtrack bigger than the first."

Metro's source added that Canadian rapper Tory Lanez also was "‘in the running" to work on the album but most likely won't get involved after the accusation relating to Megan Thee Stallion a few months ago. Alternatively, the team would be considering collaborating with emerging R&B artists Giveon and Brent Faiyaz.
Last but not least, the film's storyline has been completed despite all the rumors in recent months, and the producers of Marvel Studios have started looking for singers and artists who could write the soundtrack for the movie.
"They’ve finalized the storyline so have started courting artists to start writing songs with it in mind," the source revealed. "The first soundtrack was a major part of the first movie’s success so having stars like Doja, The Weeknd & Solange on the second will be a huge look."
Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled to hit theaters on November 11, 2022. The movie will star Letitia Wright as Shuri, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M'Baku, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Michaela Coel as Aneka, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, Tenoch Huerta as Namor and Mabel Cadena as Namora.
