Every Song on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Damn.’ Album Lands on Billboard Hot 100
Kendrick Lamar is having a good week. How good? Well, his latest album, titled, DAMN., just opened up with the highest-selling first week of 2017 and he's no more than two days removed from landing his highest-charting single to date. Now, we've found out that every single track on the album has landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Seriously.
Landing a few spots behind the suddenly ubiquitous No. 1 hit "Humble" is "DNA" at No. 4 on the chart, while the Rihanna-assisted "Loyalty" has landed in the top 15 (14). "Element" (16), "Love" (18), "Yah" (32), "XXX" (33), "Feel" (35), "Pride" (37), "Lust" (42), "Fear" (50), "Blood" (54), "God" (58) and "Duckworth" (63) all land in the top 70.
There's never an objective way to say "this album bumps," but having your entire project chart on the Billboard Hot 100 is the next best thing. It's an accomplishment that hardly even feels believable, but if you listened to DAMN., you're probably not that surprised. Then again, it's a lot more common to see this happen with albums nowadays, as the proliferation of streaming increases by the day.
The project combines all the best elements of K. Dot's music—hard-hitting lyricism, musical versatility and potent streams of uninhibited emotion. It's that combination that's got plenty of people hurling all sorts of praise in the rapper's direction, and Kenny doesn't plan on losing any momentum.
Yesterday (April 24), Kung Fun Kenny unveiled the official dates for his forthcoming DAMN. tour, which will see D.R.A.M. and Travis Scott come along for the ride when it begins a 17-city trek on July 12.
It's hard to imagine Kendrick getting even bigger than he is, but after he's done with his summer tour, who knows?
