It's been an eventful couple of weeks for Kendrick Lamar fans. After teasing what was thought to be an album release date in new track 'The Heart Part 4'  (it turned out to be the preorder date), and dropping video for single 'HUMBLE.', Kendrick announced an official date for the album's release (April 14, ICYMI) and writing credits. Now, the Compton rapper has also revealed the record's artwork and official tracklist. 

DAMN., Lamar's fourth studio album, will not feature the aforementioned "The Heart Part 4." But it will include "HUMBLE." (which was just revealed as his most successful song to date), as well as 13 other tracks. Not predicted by many, however, is the album's list of collaborators. Though DAMN.'s writing credits, revealed last week, included nods to BADBADNOTGOOD and James Blake, the record's actual features are: Rihanna (cool), U2 (wait), and that's it (sorry?).
