Tune in and turn up

Sure, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. just beat Drake’s More Life as the largest debut of 2017, but more importantly, his mom think it’s his best album yet. Posting a screenshot of a text on Instagram, Kendrick’s mom uses no less than 19 emoji to express her love for her son’s most recent album. See for yourself below why Mama Lamar thinks “this cd is bombbbb!”

Aside from producing one of the greatest screenshots of all time, this weekend was a big one for K Dot. Nielsen Music revealed that DAMN. earned 603,000 equivalent album units in its opening week, with 353,000 of those being albums sold. Kendrick Lamar has dethroned Drake’s previous record of 2017, surpassing More Life’s 505,000 equivalent units in its opening week.

Recently, the rapper sat down with Zane Lowe during the first weekend of Coachella for an in-depth interview about his most recent album. And while K Dot’s mom is clearly his biggest fan, LeBron James comes in at a close second, as he’s apparently been listening to DAMN. on repeat.
