People immediately freaked out when Kendrick revealed on April 11 that the “Work” singer would be featured on one of the tracks. “Rihanna & Kendrick Lamar’s LOYALTY is coming to slay iTunes, Streaming, charts, radios, GRAMMYs, etc etc,” one enthusiastic fan tweeted. “Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar collabo. What more could you ask for?” another echoed. We have to agree! That being said, there was a fair share of jokes and memes, too. What else could you expect from the Internet?
Here’s the full DAMN tracklisting:
6. “LOYALTY.” feat. Rihanna
11. “XXX.” feat. U2
Kendrick has said very little publicly about DAMN, but he did reveal in an interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine that he was in a very different place than his previous album when it came to creating the new record, which he considers “very urgent.” “Been thinking about my little brothers. One little brother, he bigger than me, he’s 22. Another brother, he just turned 11. Family,” he said in the interview. “I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. To Pimp a Butterfly was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore.”
