Kendrick Lamar Tops Hot 100 With ‘HUMBLE.’

Published: Monday 24th Apr 2017 by Sam

Kendrick Lamar has the masses saying ‘DAMN’ for more reasons than one this week.

The Hip-Hop force earned the year’s highest album sales debut with the LP and now has cause for celebration with its latest single ‘HUMBLE.’

For, in climbing #3-#1 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, the track has become K. Dot’s second song to reach the top of the tally. Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood (Remix)’ being the first.

In doing so, it uproots Ed Sheeran’s monster smash ‘Shape Of You’ – which logged 12 non-consecutive weeks at #1.

So how did Lamar pull off the feat?

‘HUMBLE.’ increased a colossal 56% in streaming to amass a US one week total of 67.4 million Stateside streams. It also wracked up 56,000 US downloads.

Elsewhere on the chart, the TDE star earned the week’s highest new entry with fellow ‘DAMN’ track ‘DNA’ (#4).

We’re still getting our life to the ‘HUMBLE.’ video. Watch the Dave Myers production below…

    • Danzou April 24, 2017

      • Kwinzy April 24, 2017

        Nah I ain’t forget all them HITS actually charted within the top 20. Don’t ever compare a king to a clown, one actually has rap classics under his belt AND A NUMBER ONE. FOH. Don’t @ me unless ya tall enough to ride the rollercoaster. Ya cancelled.

      • Danzou April 24, 2017

        dont @ me unless you manly enough to quit chrpin like a bird on the internet h**. steady comin’ for a woman cuz u bend over like one. that CLOWN that u referring to has sold more than all the n***** that are competing with her so shut yo h** ass up.

      • Kwinzy April 24, 2017

        I’m finna drop kick yo little person built ass off dem stilts. Baby Jadakiss swears he’s brave in these grape juice streets Ha! Ease up. THAT CLOWN ain’t got any rap relevance to even hold a torch to a Top 5 rapper like Kendrick. Vanilla Ice, MC hammer and Nelly sold more albums than all the n***** competing with Nicki right now too….your point? To be the queen of rap you gotta actually rap. Your opinion is NULL & VOID. Young Money is washed. Ya vex cuz Kenny did it the right way, never sold out and still got mad props.

      • Danzou April 24, 2017

        so now numbers matter? lol pick a side you f**. you don’t like rap nor hip hop NOR nicki and you’re mad that she’s LITERALLY the highest selling female rapper to date? even BEFORE streaming? most chart entries? only time that doesn’t matter is when YOU wanna prove your gay ass point ho ass n****. take the d*** out your mouth before you speak to me again.

      • Kwinzy April 24, 2017

        Ole head & shoulders no neck having nicca. Shorter than Gary Coleman head ass. I could fit ya little ass in my duffel you leprechaun. Stay out grown ppl’s business. I actually spent my hard earn coin on Damn. You don’t know me! So get a ladder and keep reaching.

      • Danzou April 24, 2017

    Not Kendrick Lamar getting a second #1 hit before Onickel. ? Onickel’s singles are flopping too. The dollar tree barbiez are really having a bad year.

    • Danzou April 24, 2017


  15. Bravo!! April 25, 2017

    I want to know is it better to stream or buy your artist music?? Rihanna pure albums sells was bad, but streaming she sold unit. Beyonce pure sells Was high, but streaming not so good. And I know beyonce wasn’t available on every streaming platform.
