Okay, now I’m really starting to think Kendrick Lamar is about to drop a new album next week. In case you were in a coma last week, Kendrick Lamar lit the internet on fire Thursday night by releasing “The Heart Part 4,” a fiery track where he dropped a threat at the end: “Y’all got ’til April the 7th to get y’all shit together.” At the time, I was under the impression we would get a lead single, but my theory was just shot down as the TDE representative has just released the music video for a brand new song, “HUMBLE.”
Compared to last week’s offering, “HUMBLE.” is a very different beast, with an unexpectedly simple beat accompanied by some braggadocio. I won’t lie, it was a little off-putting at first, but the more I listen to the song, the more I love it. It’s been a long time since we’ve heard Kenny sound this fun and charismatic on a track, so even if this is just a one-off, I can still get behind “HUMBLE.” as a promotional single. With April 7th only a week away at this point, it won’t be long before we find out just what K. Dot’s been cooking up. For all we know, it may just be an album announcement, though I’m sure that would prove to be a massive disappointment for fans of Kendrick.
