Kendrick Lamar Announces New Album, “DAMN.” Featuring Rihanna & U2

Kendrick Lamar’s new album was widely rumored to be released on April 7th. The date was suggested from “The Heart Part 4,” the fourth installment from the series. Closing the song, he warns, “Y’all got ‘til April the 7th to get y’all shit together.” Fans mistook the date mentioned as the release date for the hotly-anticipated album. Instead, a pre-order went to iTunes on Thursday night revealing the official date, April 14th. 

Moments ago, the Compton native officially unveiled the title and tracklist for the follow-up to last year’s “untitled.” Simply titled “Damn.,” the 14-track set features two superstar guests, Rihanna (“LOYALTY”) and U2 (“XXX”). It also includes the effort’s lead single, “Humble.”

Who's ready for Friday?
