With Kendrick seemingly releasing his next studio album ‘DAMN.’ this Friday, including collaborations with U2 (ok???) and Rihanna (obvs) let’s look back at Kendrick’s 5 best tracks (in no particular order) so far.
Coming in fairly early on in Kendrick’s incredible ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ album, ‘King Kunta’ has an infectious bass groove and a great spoken/sung callback thing going on with his backing singers on the track. By the time you hear the next pop, the funk shall be within you.
An upbeat cut from TPAB, ‘Alright’ features some of the best bars King K has to offer, especially on tbe incredible run towards the end of the track.
Untitled 07 levitate
For what was essentially a B Sides collection, ‘untitled unmastered’ had some great tracks on it. Untitled 07 levitate was the single taken from this collection, and the strongest track of the lot.
One of Kendrick’s most pop-friendly, upbeat tracks, the 2014 single ‘i’ was later featured on ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ as a live version, which brings even more energy to the song.
The Blacker The Berry
Perhaps Kendrick’s most obviously politically charged track, ‘The Blacker The Berry’ was another stand out song from TPAB, with the Grammy performance of this song pushing it up to another level.
