The wait is over
Kendrick Lamar has released DAMN., his anticipated follow-up to 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly. You can listen to it via Spotify and Apple Music below.
The album features U2 – yes, that U2 – Rihanna and Zacari. Many originally presumed the record would arrive last Friday, with Lamar teasing the date 7 April in his March-released standalone track The Heart Part 4. Instead, on that day we got link a pre-order link and a list of credits listing BADBADNOTGOOD, DJ Dahi, the Alchemist, 9th Wonder and more. What’s more, The Fader‘s spot that a certain J. Blake could well be James Blake has also been confirmed.
DAMN. includes the track Humble, the lead single which arrived 30 March with a gripping, kinetic video directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies.
