Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN has arrived!
After releasing lead single ‘Humble’ just a few weeks ago, then following up with the release date announcement, Kendrick Lamar debuts his new album DAMN. The album consists of 14 tracks, but the song titles don’t give a lot away and are mostly monosyllabic, referencing seven deadly sin-style emotions like “Lust,” “Pride” and “Fear,” closing with the song titled “Duckworth” – Kendrick’s surname.
The artwork is really intriguing and a world away from the White House tableau on the cover of To Pimp a Butterfly. The word DAMN. is emblazoned in flat red, serif lettering and doesn’t even fit properly within the square. Kendrick looks dazed in a straightforward portrait of him in a white tee next to a wall and the Parental Advisory logo is positioned awkwardly.
The album features guest appearances from Rihanna and U2 with production credits for BADBADNOTGOOD, Mike WiLL-Made It, DJ Dahi, Sounwave, 9th Wonder, the Alchemist, Greg Kurstin, and a “J. Blake.”
