Kendrick Lamar fans have been starving for new music from the young legend for a while now. His last huge record that he put out was “All The Stars” with SZA in 2018 which was released on the “Black Panther” movie soundtrack in 2018.
His last solo studio album was his fourth one, “DAMN,” back in April 2017. There has been no hints as to when a new project will be out so in the meantime, fans are reminiscing with older ones.
‘DAMN’ Has Been On Billboard 200 Chart For 200 Weeks Now
When DAMN was first released in 2017, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It also went on to win a Pulitzer Prize. It currently stands at 3x platinum status by the RIAA in the US as well.
At the rate that Lamar is going with his music hiatus, it could get more platinum certifications in 2021 as well.
‘DAMN’ Had Some Of The Biggest Hits Of 2017
Lamar was really in mainstream status with “DAMN” for sure. This album featured some of the best songs of 2017 such as the singles “Love” featuring Rihanna, “Humble” “DNA,” and “Love” feat. Zacari. Loyalty is 2x platinum, “Humble” is 7x platinum, Love is 4x platinum, and “DNA” is 3x platinum.
Many believe that DAMN is Lamar’s best album to date but there are other debates regarding this topic as well as he his previous two albums were highly successful as well.
Kendrick Arguably Has Four Classic Albums
As fans ponder on when Lamar will finally deliver his fifth studio album, they continue to discuss which album he’s released so far is his best so far. Many agree that all four so far have been classics overall.
Lamar‘s first album was “Section.80” in 2011, “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City” in 2013, “To Pimp A Butterfly” in 2015, and then, “DAMN” in 2017. Commonly, fans let the debate come down to GKMC, TPAB, or DAMN. Section.80 still remains a very underrated project by Lamar.
Kendrick Is Part Of A Very Talented Record Label At Top Dawg Entertainment
Lamar also comes from a record label in Top Dawg Entertainment, which is based in Los Angeles. He’s been with TDE for over a decade now. Fans have seen them produce very solid artists such as SZA, Reason, ScHoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul. SZA seems to be the star for them lately though as she’s been making noise with singles that are doing very well on the charts. These include”Hit Different” feat. Ty Dolla $ign from September and “Good Days,” which was released on Christmas Day.
