Well, DAMN. Kendrick Lamar continues to make noise with his third major label album, which has spawned some of the year’s biggest hits.
The first of those smashes is “HUMBLE.” which is the second-most streamed song of 2017 behind Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” according to HITS Daily Double. But that’s just the start for K-Dot’s impressive year.
