We didn't get a new album from Kendrick Lamar or SZA this year, but they released one of the hottest songs in 2018, "All The Stars." The song was released as the first single from Top Dawg & Kendrick-curated Black Panther: Album. The two TDE artists were then sued by an artist who accused them of tearing up his work for the song's music video. Even though there are legal battles, they get things done before the holidays.

According to The Blast, Lina Iris Viktor reached an agreement with the artists involved in the "All The Stars" lawsuit to cancel the case. Court documents filed on December 21 revealed that all claims against Kendrick and SZA and other parties had been dismissed.

Viktor accused Kendrick Lamar and SZA of tearing off his artwork, "Constellations I," "Constellation II" and "Constellation III," in the "All The Stars" video for "Black Panther." permission to use it after the film producer asked permission to use artwork for the film. He claimed they were asking if he would make new artwork for films as an alternative. He said he refused their request on both occasions. However, they allegedly tried to re-create his work and he demanded copyright infringement.
