'Black Panther' Is the Top Album on iTunes

'Why would they do this?

He said: "'It's an ethical issue, because what the whole film purports is that it's about black empowerment, African excellence-that's the whole concept of the story", Robinson told the New York Times. She points out the irony that a film that's been widely praised for its use of African culture is now allegedly stealing work from African artist.

In an interview, Viktor said she cared about the principle more than compensation, explaining: "Cultural appropriation is something that continually happens to African-American artists, and I want to make a stand".

Preceding the release of Marvel's first new superhero movie of the year was Kendrick Lamar's fifth studio album, Black Panther.

On Feb. 6, website Okay Africa posted in their breakdown of the aforementioned music video, "The work and influence of British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor can be clearly spotted".

Kendrick Lamar tweeted Sunday that he was thankful for the opportunity to be behind the soundtrack, but has yet to comment on these allegations.

Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station) directed Black Panther, which sees T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) ruling the kingdom of Wakanda following his father's death in Captain America: Civil War as threats from within arise. This album is not only for the highly anticipated Marvel film Black Panther but also the album and mood for the rest of Black History Month.

She is demanding a public apology as well as a licensing fee for the appearance of the "Constellation" series geometric designs as the background of a room where Lamar walks among models decked out in gold.

Viktor and her lawyer claim that the video copied the style of her Constellations series. The flute-filled Travis Scott feature "Big Shot" is fine if forgettable, and "Pray For Me", Lamar's collaboration with The Weeknd - although suitably anthemic and undeniably accessible - feels like a half-baked attempt to replicate one of the weaker tracks from the Canadian singer's 2016 album Starboy. She expressed that she was not seeking compensation as much as she was seeking acknowledgement.
