'Black Panther' soundtrack makes history on the music charts

In addition to setting records at the box office, Black Panther is making history on the music charts. The Kendrick Lamar-produced soundtrack enters the Billboard 200 at No. 1, even though Billboard’s sales tracking week ended Feb. 15 — the day before the movie opened in theaters. Now that the movie is out (and is the No. 1 film in the country), the soundtrack is a lock to hold at No. 1 next week.
