Black Panther earned a whopping eight nominations at this year's Grammy Awards for its soundtrack compiled by hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar. Though it ended up winning two awards in the form of "Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media" and "Best Rap Performance," the soundtrack fell short in the other six categories it was nominated for including "Album of the Year."
Shortly after Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour" was tapped as "Album of the Year," Black Panther fans instantly took to social media to voice their opinions on why the soundtrack for the Ryan Coogler-helmed flick deserved to win.
Black Panther: The Album debuted at the top position on the Billboard 200 with upwards of 154,000 equivalent album units in its first week available last year. At the height of its popularity, the soundtrack had eight songs on the Billboard Hot 100, including the Grammy-nominated "All the Stars" by Kendrick Lamar and SZA.
"All the Stars" ended up peaking at the seventh slot on the Hot 100 on the chart released March 3rd, 2018.
Black Panther is now available for streaming on Netflix. Upcoming Marvel movies set for release this year include Captain Marvel on March 8th, Avengers: Endgame on April 26th, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th.

anyway congratulations to the Black Panther album for winning album of the year at the 61st grammy awards— sak (@mochimminyg) February 11, 2019
I feel bad for The Black Panther Soundtrack. They put together a really dope album and "All The Stars" wins the Grammy & Academy Award any other year there isn't a A STAR IS BORN remake and monster like "Shallow".— Sam Spade (@MrJustinPowell) February 11, 2019
You can justify a Post Malone W. You can’t prove to me how Kacey gets that award. That was Black Panther’s grammy they stole.
I would have loved to see Cardi take it too— I Talk Music & Music Accessories (@Its_Tribblez) February 11, 2019
Black Panther’s soundtrack not winning a Grammy is a scam— baldie 🐝 (@angel_gxt) February 11, 2019
Absolutely right. I stupidly assumed that it would win because it was supposed to. It was the perfect ending to Black Panther. The judging committee should be ashamed. They know Mac Miller should've got that Grammy as well.— 💜🐘♈ravenbabe321♈🐘💜 (@ravenbabe321) February 11, 2019
So this Kacey Musty shawty really came in here and won...who is she cause...BlackPanther was definitely in the category #Grammy— Ashia (@cocopebbles_8) February 11, 2019
Can someone from the @RecordingAcad explain how Black Panther didn’t win with all those amazing artists? Everyone got to eat except @kendricklamar apparently. Congrats on the #BestRapPerformance, though you deserved more.— DevinGuempel (@DevinGuempel) February 11, 2019
