No reason to be humble today! Kendrick Lamar's new hit album DAMN. is dominating the Billboard Hot 100 charts with every single song on the album charting! The widespread critically-acclaimed album demolished Drake's opening week sales by nearly 100,000 units, and it is the number one album in the country. The cherry on top is its debut single "Humble" also being number one.
Lamar is winning through a virtually unattainable feat: he has achieved mass interest not just in his singles, but in his entire album, from beginning to end. Each and every one of the thirteen tracks have left enough of an impression to hit the coveted chart.
If you need proof that the album's songs are surrounded by hype and buzz, look no further than Twitter, a direct reflection:

There's no sign of Kendrick slowing down, either. Lamar will be hitting the road with Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. this summer for the live tour and a direct extension of DAMN.
