After waiting five years, Kendrick Lamar fans are celebrating the news of a new album dropping next month.
Lamar tweeted a link to his Oklama website Monday revealing that his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, will be released May 13. This will be his final release on Top Dawg Entertainment, and follows his 2017 release, DAMN., which won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Music and was RIAA-certified triple-Platinum. It includes the number-one hit “Humble,” and “Loyalty,” featuring Rihanna.
Following a long recording hiatus, the 14-time Grammy winner was featured in October 2021 on Busta Rhymes’ song “Look Over Your Shoulder” before joining his cousin, Baby Keem, on “Range Brothers” and “Family Ties.”
The Compton, California MC may perform some of his new music when he closes the Rolling Loud Miami festival on Sunday, July 24. In February, Kendrick performed with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Eminem and Mary J. Blige during halftime of Super Bowl 56 at Sofi Stadium in Englewood, California.
