Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” Hits Unbelievable Billboard Record! Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” has hit an unbelievable Billboard record. The album continues to be a main-stay on the Billboard 200 charts, where it has remained ever since it was released.
For an album to have staying power, in this era of instant gratification, during which projects are churned out at a break-neck pace, is a quality many artists would desire for their albums. For this reason, Kendrick Lamar is widely regarded as a generational artist who is capable of penning challenging prose at the same time shaping and steering the cultural sound.
Even as many of his fans eagerly await the release of his new album, it’s evident that DAMN has yet to fade away from the people’s consciousness.
So much so that the album has been a main-stay on the Billboard 200 charts for a staggering 200 consecutive weeks, as reported by HipHopDX. Which points out the fact that it has been present since its release in April 2017. It has climbed up and down throughout the years but never has it to left the charts entirely.
Should the album remain on the Top 200 for another 5 weeks, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN will have officially spent 4 years straight on the charts. It’s no wonder that the California native has chosen to take his time in releasing a new album. That said, it’s clear his next project will instantly make itself at home on the charts upon its eventual release.
