New Music: Kendrick Lamar – ‘i’

King Kendrick is back. Nearly two years after releasing his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, TDE’s golden child returns to the mic with his anthemic new single “i.” Over a sample of the Isley Brothers’ ’70s classic “That Lady,” produced by Rahki, K-Dot spreads an uplifting message of self-love and acceptance.

“Everybody lack confidence, how many times my potential was anonymous? / How many times the city makin’ me promises, so I promise this / I love myself,” he declares.

Kendrick’s sophomore album is due later this year featuring production from Dr. Dre and TDE’s in-house producers Digi+Phonics.

“There was a lot left out of good kid—it could have been a 30-track album,” he told Rolling Stone. “There are a few new [songs] that can tie in with what I was talking about.”
