The dangerously anticipated Black Panther film starring Hollywood’s most sought-after melanin kings and queens is right around the corner, but a few gems from the soundtrack have already arrived.
Thanks to the musical project’s executive producer and Top Dawg Entertainment rap marvel Kendrick Lamar, the full tracklist is here as well, as revealed in a tweet on Wednesday (January 31). The rest of TDE is squadded up on Black Panther The Album, with names like SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul standing out and softer voices like Jorja Smith, Zacari and The Weeknd making their appearances. But despite all signs seeming to have pointed to a Beyoncé appearance, the Lemonade songstress is nowhere to be found on the features list.
And now the BeyHive is having a nervous breakdown all over the internet.
See the powerful soundtrack lineup and the reactions from Queen Bey fans below.

Hello My Loves, Kendrick Lamar executive produced the Black Panther Soundtrack and Beyoncé`s name is no where to be found on the tracklist but James Black is on the soundtrack twice. Why is that?
