The wait is over! After releasing 2 songs over the past 3 weeks, Kendrick Lamar has announced that his new album will be called DAMN.. To help get fans ready for the release of the record, Kendrick has unveiled the album’s official cover art and tracklisting.

Consisting of 14 tracks, the album will feature guest appearances from Rihanna and U2:

1. “BLOOD.”
2. “DNA.”
3. “YAH.”
5. “FEEL.”
6. “LOYALTY.” feat. Rihanna
7. “PRIDE.”
8. “HUMBLE.”
9. “LUST.”
10. “LOVE.”
11. “XXX.” feat. U2
12. “FEAR.”
13. “GOD.”

Damn is due for release on this Friday, April 14, by Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope Records and Top Dawg Entertainment. The album’s official lead single, HUMBLE., was released in March 30 and managed to debut at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. HUMBLE. serves as Kendrick’s fourth Top 10 single and his first as a lead artist. On the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, the song managed to reach #1.

Just like his last album, 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly, and after listening to HUMBLE., I am expecting DAMN. to be very political and hard-hitting. With the presidential election and more black women and men being killed by police, I know that Kendrick is going to be one of the driving voices in music this year.

A little favor...
