Kendrick Lamar is out with his latest project, “Untitled Unmastered,” which is now available on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and Tidal.
While Tidal poorly released Rihana’s “ANTI,” Spotify revealed Lamar’s new album on Thursday night. The release holds no option to listen to the music.
According to The Verge, Spotify leaked the album info on Thursday. It included the name of the album, the vague track list of eight songs featuring the word “untitled” along with a list of dates ranging from “05.28.2013” to “2014-2016.”
It is still unknown whether the leak was accidental on behalf of Lamar’s management or it was a mistake made by Spotify.
However, on Thursday night, the album became obtainable for purchase on iTunes.
The predecessor of the new album, “To Pimp A Butterfly,” was a bearer of social commentary, woven with neo-G Funk, jazz licks and wounded sax, says Independent.
The backbone of “To Pimp A Butterfly” was a mantra that said, “I remember you was conflicted, misusing your influence….”
The album earned Lamar five Grammy awards last month. During the event Lamar delivered a legendary performance of “The Blacker The Berry” and “Alright”, which paved the album as one of the most significant works in modern hip-hop.
Days before the Grammy Awards, LL Cool J predicted upon Lamar’s performance in the Grammy. “Kendrick Lamar’s gonna do something very controversial,” LL Cool J said in an interview.
“I got a chamber of material from the album that I was in love where the sample clearances or something as simple as deadline kept it off the album,” Lamar said in a recent interview with 2 Dope Boyz.
“But I think probably close to ten songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform that didn’t make the cut.”
The new 38-minute album will be released on the streaming site on Friday via Aftermath, Interscope, and Top Dawg Entertainment, says Spotify.
