Kendrick Lamar Expected to Score His Third Number One with Damn.

Although the week isn’t over yet, and Kendrick’s DAMN. [Explicit] has already broken a bunch of Spotify records, he’s expected to debut at number one on the Billboard 200. He is expecting to break the previous debut by Drake’s More Life of 505,000 total units.

Damn. has already become one of the most critically acclaimed albums on Metacritic, and will likely hold the number one spot on the Billboard 200. There’s also a high chance he can dethrone Ed Sheeran off of the Hot 100 that he has been ruling for 12 weeks.

DAMN. Kendrick Lamar Just Broke a Bunch of Records!

Kendrick Lamar’s new album DAMN. was released on Friday & in the past day or so he’s smashed multiple Spotify records already with more expected as the week runs out.

Drake Casually Breaks A Bunch of Records In a Week

Drake’s newest album More Life has been on a record smashing roll since its release last week. Not only did he break the previous Spotify records for the most streamed album in a day, and most streamed artist in a day(both recently set by Ed Sheeran), but he broke two Billboard records as well.

Drake now holds the title for the most hits on the Billboard Hot 100, passing the previous record holder and friend Lil Wayne. With his new album More Life, which is sitting happily at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, all 22 tracks plus 2 others of Drake’s combine to also break his previous record for the most simultaneous entries on the Hot 100 with 24 tracks.

All of this within the same month that Nicki Minaj broke the record for most entries among women.

Drake recently said that he wanted to be seen as more than a rapper, and rather a “pop star like Michael Jackson.” I think with Drake’s vision, drive, and general likability, he’s on his way. There hasn’t been anyone else like him whose been able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time, especially while being so young. With Drake as a driving force, the future of music looks bright.
