An artist’s dream is to have a project last years. Some last decades, for Kendrick Lamar, he accomplished something quite extraordinary this week. His album “DAMN” continues to remain on the Billboard 200 charts for over 200 weeks. It is no surprise that the album did good, the project really captured a generation of listeners.
Personally, I remember when DAMN came out while I was in College. You heard his album from the streets, from peoples’ cars, and at ALL the parties. It is quite astonishing to see the success of this project and it is not surprising to find out that it is continuing to exceed expectations.
HipHopDX reported that the Kendrick album has been in the billboard 200 ever since its release in April 2017. After 200 consecutive weeks, the album is set to break another record where it will officially be 4 years in the billboard charts.
With these kind of numbers, you start to think that the rapper is has plenty of comfort in releasing a new album. Anything from Kendrick is sure to be successful, although no one knows when his next release will be, some say that we should expect something this year.
