Lamar is once again riding high on the New Zealand charts with his #2 hit soundtrack album Black Panther: The Album including collaborations with SZA (“All the Stars”) and The Weeknd (“Pray for Me’)– both top 5 hits.
Lamar has just been awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for his album DAMN. – marking the first time a rap artist has won this coveted accolade.
Having recently taken the DAMN. tour across the UK and Europe, set lists were formed from Kendrick Lamar’s multi-Platinum selling catalogue, including good kid, m.A.A.d city (2012) – featuring ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’, and ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’ – To Pimp A Butterfly (2015) – featuring ‘King Kunta’, ‘Alright’, ‘i’ – and compilation album untitled unmastered.
Kendrick Lamar’s fourth studio album DAMN. solidified his standing as one of the world’s best artists. Featuring the huge singles ‘Loyalty’ (feat. Rihanna), ‘Love’ (feat. Zacari) and ‘Humble’. DAMN. became Kendrick’s third album to surpass 1 million album sales in the US (joining To Pimp A Butterfly and good kid, m.A.A.d city.) and earned him a staggering five GRAMMY Award wins from a total of seven nominations.
With 13 billion Spotify streams, 12 Grammy awards, and over 6 million album sales worldwide, Kendrick Lamar has an incredible reach that surpasses a lot of his peers. He was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME Magazine and in the best 10 rappers of all time by Billboard, amongst other accolades, including being handed the keys to the city of his hometown of Compton, California by its Mayor. Lamar most recently curated and produced the soundtrack for Marvel Studios blockbuster Black Panther, which he worked on during the DAMN. tour in the United States last year.
