Kendrick Lamar Lands First US #1 With Humble; Announces Summer Tour

Recommended Posts

Finally, Ed is dethroned.


Kendrick Lamar officially has the number one song in America.



After a seemingly unstoppable reign from Ed Sheeran with Shape Of You, the Compton rapper has finally landed atop the Billboard Hot 100 with HUMBLE.

Despite his considerable star power, Humble is Lamar's first #1 single as a solo artist. He did reach the top spot as a feature on Taylor Swift's Bad Blood back in 2015. Kendrick's latest album, DAMN., is also sitting in the top spot.

Lamar is widely regarded as this generation's best rapper, for his ability to seamlessly combine social commentary with insanely catchy beats and an extremely technical flow, as well as his penchant for working well outside his genre (example: a song on his current album features U2).

In other chart news, the very brief absence of any female artists in the top ten was ended by newcomer Alessia Cara with Stay. A Justin Bieber cameo also sees Daddy Yankee's single Despacito zoom into the top ten, giving Yankee and Luis Fonsi their first top ten hit ever (for anyone wondering, Gasolina only peaked at #32).

While he celebrates his first #1, Kendrick fans had another reason to celebrate as the rapper announced a string of summer shows, with Travis Scott and D.R.A.M coming along for the ride:




Kendrick's latest single DNA also entered the top 10 at #4.
