U2 Is Featured on Kendrick Lamar’s New Album

Well, this is interesting.

Today, Kendrick Lamar released the cover of his upcoming album, expected to drop on Friday.

And along with a track listing, it also revealed a somewhat surprising collaboration: The song titled “XXX” features U2.

Many of the song titles seem to be references to either vices (“Lust,” “Pride,” “Fear”) or virtues (“Humble,” Loyalty,” “Love”). There’s even a song called “God.” The album, title D*mn, also features a collaboration with Rihanna. 

Last month, the rapper revealed to The New York Times that spirituality would be a major part of the record.

He said,


“To Pimp a Butterfly” was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore. We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.
