Sunday Mood: I’m absolutely in love with the gorgeous song “All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA.
The track is a stylistic departure for Lamar. It is highly melodic, with lush sweeping synths and orchestration, set to a captivating dance beat.

The song bars consist of mesmerizing and powerful lyrics about duplicity and betrayal:

The music video for the song is positively stunning!

Initially, I intended to describe the imagery displayed in the video, but the visuals are so complex and filled with such extraordinary cultural beauty, I thought it would be best to simply watch & experience the visually breathtaking music video personally and form your own option.

However, be prepare to be amazed!

We were so enamored by the visuals displayed in Kendrick Lamar’s “All The Stars” music video that we were inspired.

In celebration of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever we decided to pay homage to the stunning imagery with our editorial “Color Me Beautiful”.

Lyrics: “All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA

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

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

Fuck 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 endorsing?
Motherfucker, 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 building with
I want the credit if I’m losing or I’m winning

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? (Haunt)
I know the feeling haunt you (Haunt)

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 sound wrong, get it away from me, yeah
I ain’t just cry for no reason

I ain’t just pray for no reason
I just thank for the life, for the days, for the hours
And another life breathin’
I did it all ’cause it feel good

You’d leave it all if it feel bad
Better live your life
We were running out of time
Love, let’s talk about love
