Kendrick Lamar’s new song “HUMBLE.” has become his highest charting solo single to date, as Billboardreports. It debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100, selling 111,000 downloads during its first week and being streamed 49.8 million times. “HUMBLE.” marks Kendrick’s first appearance as a solo artist in the top 10, although he had previously charted at No. 1 with an appearance on Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” and appeared in the top 10 with Maroon 5 on “Don’t Wanna Know” and with Drake and 2 Chainz on A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin Problems.” “HUMBLE.” was edged out by Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” for the No. 1 spot, where it has been for its 11th week straight.
“HUMBLE.” is set to appear on Lamar’s new album, which is out April 14 and allegedly features contributions from U2, BADBADNOTGOOD, and more. The release of “HUMBLE.” followed another new song, “The Heart Part 4,” a week prior.
