2017 has been more than a good year for Kendrick Lamar. After his album DAMN. got certified platinum barely two months after its release, and the artist bagging six awards at the VMAs, while also leading nods at the BET Awards, K. Dot has now added yet another achievement to his ever-growing list.
Nearly six months after the release of DAMN., Kendrick Lamar’s fourth studio album, “HUMBLE.” is currently the second most streamed song of the year, according to Hits Daily Double. The number of YTD (year-to-date) audio streams for the DAMN. single stands at 465,231,000.
The top spot on the chart went to Puerto Rican acts Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito.”
“DNA.” (#15), “LOVE.” (#27), “LOYALTY.” (#39) and “ELEMENT.” (#48) are also featured on Hits Daily Double’s YTD Top 50 Audio Streams chart. With five songs on the list, the Compton MC is also the artist with the most singles on that particular chart.
The news was shared on social media by the official Twitter account for Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), K. Dot’s label.
