How do I feel about the new Kendrick Lamar album, Damn. ?
“If I didn’t ride blade on curb, would you still (love me?)
If I minimize my net worth, would you still (love me?)
Keep it a hundred, I’d rather you trust me than to (love me)
Keep it a whole one hund’: don’t got you, I got nothin’“
Don’t the lyrics just make you blush. My answer to those questions are, YES I would still love you. I am not shallow. But this isn’t about me.
In my opinion, there is no better song than one that makes you feel it on the inside.
I must admit I listened to Damn. about 5 times to discover my true feelings and reaction. Initially, I enjoyed specific singles individually such as: Loyalty ft. Rihanna, Love ft. Zacari, and DNA. Though, I struggled to listened to Damn. completely from beginning to end.
“Love” especially captured my heart. The embodiment of the lyrics makes me yearn for a love I have not experienced yet. Perfect for Summer Romance 😉
I decided I had to open my mind to enjoy the entire worth of the album. To do so, I had a GENIUS idea! Why not listen to it while cleaning? So I did. Sadly, I still could not go through the album without skipping through songs. Though, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Tracks such as: Fear, GOD., and Feel do not capture my SOUL, but I can admire the production.
The production/quality of beats and instrumentals were superb! XXX ft. U2 made my heart come out of my chest. My inner band geek was completely fulfilled by the rhythmic patterns and spooky hollow background.
