Kendrick Lamar, SZA – All The Stars

Love, let's talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer


Tell me what you gon' do to me
Confrontation ain't nothin' new to me
You can bring a bullet, bring a sword, bring a morgue
But you can't bring the truth to me
F*** you and all your expectations
I don't even want your congratulations
I recognize your false confidence
And calculated promises all in your conversation
I hate people that feel entitled
Look at me crazy 'cause I ain't invite you
Oh, you important?
You the moral to the story? You endorsin'?
Motherf***, I don't even like you
Corrupt a man's heart with a gift
That's how you find out who you dealin' with
A small percentage who I'm buildin' with
I want the credit if I'm losin' or I'm winnin'
On my momma, that's the realest shit

Love, let's talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer

Skin covered in ego
Get to talkin', I get involved, like a rebound
No control, no off switch
And the way that you bringin' me down
It's a turn on, get it away from me
Know you mean wrong, keep away from me
And it's all wrong, get it away from me, yeah
I, I just cry for no reason
I just pray for no reason
I just thank for the life, for the day
For the hours and another life breathin'
I did it all 'cause it feel good
You could live it all if you feel bad
Better live your life, we were runnin' out of time

Love, let's talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
This may be the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer
All the stars are closer

Interpretation of All The Stars

The film Black Panther started in cinemas in February 2018 with a peculiarity in film history: it is the first film with African-American superheroes in the title role. The soundtrack includes 14 tracks, including All The Stars by Kendrick Lamar feat. SZA. The music video by All The Stars picks up on the theme of the film and yet manages to be perceived as an independent work. The video contains contexts of Egyptian mythology, African culture and Afrofuturism and combines African aesthetics with superhero depictions. Kendrick raps about conflicts that need to be overcome. He takes the position of the movie hero. The music video captures the zeitgeist of African culture and mentality. The rhythmic sounds indicate the hope and hopelessness in relationships.


The song begins with a hypnotic beat that brings the listener closer to the confusing and nebulous nature of love. Kendrick's distorted voice starts the chorus, with thoughtful questions that repeat themselves throughout the song: "Is it anything and everything you hoped for? Or do the feeling haunt you?" SZA joins in, answering Kendrick's pessimism in a chorus of hope and expectation. "This may be the night that my dreams might let me know. All the stars are closer".


The voices and lyrical styles of Kendrick and SZA complement each other effortlessly. The harshness and authority in his verses is balanced by her angelic and dreamy sounds. Together, they deal with issues such as inflated egos, social expectations, emotionally abusive relationships that have no apparent escape, and ending love that was doomed to failure from the start. The range of emotions buried in this song is manifold.
