Back in February, British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor filed a lawsuit against Kendrick Lamar and SZA regarding their "All The Stars" music video off the Black Panther soundtrack. Viktor argued that, although she denied Marvel's requests to use her work, the Dave Meyers-directed clip utilized prints that bared a striking resemblance to her iconography. Today, Pitchfork reports that the suit has been settled, and all claims have been dismissed.

Last week, a mysterious SZA project under the name "Sister Solana" surfaced online, with features from Kendrick Lamar dubbed as "King Kenny." SZA later dismissed the album as leaked material from 2015, and it was swiftly removed from streaming platforms. She did, however, promise that new music is coming soon, and later deleted all posts on her Instagram.
