Earlier this morning, Kendrick Lamar unveiled the cover and full track list for his next album DAMN. Perhaps the most surprising bit of news that came with the reveal is the revelation that U2 nabbed a feature on the record. The Irish rock group show up on a track titled “XXX,” which features production work from Mike Will Made-It.
Needless to say the idea of one of the biggest bands in recorded history pairing up in a support role to lend an assist to one of the most lyrically adept MCs of all-time got a lot of people on the Internet very stirred up.
Some people were excited by the news.
Others weren’t as thrilled by U2’s presence.
Others wondered what the album might do for U2’s reputation coming after the firestorm they sparked when they tried to include their last album Songs Of Innocence on everyone’s iPhone.
While some wondered at the budget implications.
After weeks of crazy anticipation, Kendrick’s next album Damn is set to drop this Friday. Check out the full track list below, which also includes a guest verse from Rihanna.
