Kendrick Lamar resumed his chart dominance this week, after all of the tracks from his fifth studio album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, according to Chart Data.
According to Billboard, Kendrick had four singles debut in the Top 10. After “N95” debuted at No. 3, “Die Hard” at No. 5, “Silent Hill” at No. 7, and “United In Grief” at No. 8, Kendrick becomes the seventh artist to achieve the feat, following Drake, Bad Bunny, Lil Wayne, Future, Juice WRLD, and J. Cole.
Lamar now has four top ten entries on the Hot 100, bringing his total to 12. “Humble” (No. 1), “DNA” (No. 4), “All The Stars” (No. 7) and “Pray For Me” (No. 8) were among his earlier top ten successes (No. 7). Lil Wayne (“Mona Lisa”), Taylor Swift (“Bad Blood”), Maroon 5 (“Don’t Wanna Know”), and ASAP Rocky (“Fuckin Problems”) all featured the Compton rapper as a featured guest on top 10 hits.
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick’s fourth consecutive No. 1 album and the largest release week of 2022 so far, was announced barely a week ago. Last week, the album debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 list, with 295,500 equivalent album units sold in its first week of release.
