Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Damn’ LP Boasts 5 of the Most-Streamed Songs of 2017
There’s no question that Kendrick Lamar is having a fantastic year. His latest album, Damn, is doing numbers sales-wise, but his songs are getting major streams as well.
According to HITS Daily Double, “Humble” is the second most-streamed song of 2017 behind Luis and Daddy Yankee’s red-hot track, “Despacito.” But that’s all. K.Dot has four more tunes that are earning major streams as well.
On the Top 50 Audio Streams list (via Rap-Up), Lamar has “DNA” (No. 15), “Love” featuring Zacari (No. 27), “Loyalty” with Rihanna (No. 39), and “Element” (No. 48), for a combined total of five songs in the top 50.
Now that's Damn impressive. Speaking of which, Lamar's project is the most-streamed album this year with over 2 million SPS, thus far. Drake’s More Life trails at No. 2 with just under 2 million SPS.
Next up for Lamar is a speaking gig. The Compton rhymer is the keynote speaker at the annual Forbes Under 30 Summit, which will take place at Boston’s City Hall Plaza on Tuesday (Oct. 3).
“Kendrick Lamar is the voice of the under-30 generation, and we can’t wait to hear more from him,“ said Forbes' Senior Editor Media and Entertainment Zack O’Malley Greenburg.
