"Humble" has reached the number 1 spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart. Fans are all over social media posting about the song. Others are just a little pissed about Kendrick Lamar's potential miss of the mark.
According to Billboard, "Humble" is by far the biggest song that Kendrick Lamar has ever released. This is his 45th chart hit but it is his first chart-topper. The song is part of his upcoming album that will be out on Friday, April 14.
Kendrick Lamar seems to be enjoying the spotlight as he has raked in about 49.8 million streams from the United States alone. 15.6 million listeners were from YouTube fans. However, what really helped get it on the top spot of the chart was the 111,000 people who downloaded "Humble."
While Kendrick Lamar is busy campaigning for his upcoming album, others are busy throwing stones. The rapper has been slammed for allegedly missing the mark on the music video of "Humble." It appears that some fans are into dissecting the message of the award-winning rapper's song.
In the video, there are other things to notice. First, there's Kendrick Lamar acting as the Young Pope, the rapper passing around the Grey Poupon, and others. However, some fans pointed out that there was something wrong with the scene beside Carter Kim, a 21-year-old model.
According to ELLE, fans noted that Kim wasn't supposed to be the model used for personifying a "natural" beauty. Kendrick Lamar is actually pointing out in his song that he prefers someone with less make up on. This is notable through the video's highlights on Kim's stretch marks.
The outlet spoke with Carter Kim regarding her take on the new issue of debate online. She admitted that the matter is "frustrating." Some fans have noted that the model in Kendrick Lamar's new video has fake hair. The truth is, Kim is African-American but she's also Asian.
Kendrick Lamar has yet to officially release his side on the issue about his new music video. "Humble" continues to prove its point while loyal fans of the rapper push to make the numbers count.© 2018 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
