Kendrick Lamar's Damn single "Humble" is now the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. The track knocked Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" from the top spot, rising from No. 3 to No. 1 on the chart dated May 6. "Humble" marks Lamar's second Hot 100 No. 1 and his first ever as a lead artist. Lamar's second Damn single "DNA" also entered the charts at No. 4.
Producer Mike Will Made-It celebrated the news with a quick tweet Monday:
Damn gave Lamar the biggest chart debut of 2017, Billboard reported this weekend. The album entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with 603,000 equivalent album units. After dropping the massive "Humble" video at the end of March, Lamar shared the cameo-filled "DNA" video a few short weeks later. The video, which also features appearances from Brocky Marciano and fellow Top Dawg artist Schoolboy Q, stars the original Kung Fu Kenny: Don Cheadle.
Early Monday, Lamar announced the 17-date Damn Tour. Lamar has enlisted D.R.A.M. and "Goosebumps" collaborator Travis Scott as openers for the North American run, which kicks off in Phoenix July 12 and closes in Los Angeles Aug. 6. Following an early access period for American Express card holders from April 25 to 27, tickets will go on sale to the general public April 28.
