Released in October 2012, Kendrick’s major-label debut was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and earned him four Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year. It spawned hits including “Swimming Pools (Drank),” “Poetic Justice,” and “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
It’s been three years since Kendrick’s last album, 2017’s DAMN., but the wait for new music may soon be over. “Stay patient king Kendrick will return soon,” TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith teased last month.
The Pulitzer Prize winner was set to headline Glastonbury this year before the festival was canceled due to the coronavirus. He also remains focused on family life. He and his fiancée, Whitney Alford, welcomed a daughter last July.
