Kendrick Lamar is on top once again

2015 has proven to be a year of first’s for Kendrick Lamar, and the good times for the Compton emcee just keep on rolling. At this year’s Grammy Awards, Kendrick snagged his first two Grammy Awards for his hit single “i,” after infamously going 0-for-7 at the 2014 show. The very next month, his sophomore album, To Pimp A Butterfly, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of over 320,000–Kendrick’s first chart-topper. His debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, went platinum but bowed at the #2 spot to, ironically enough, Taylor Swift‘s Red in 2012.


Today, Kendrick’s hit another milestone: #1 hit. Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video–which features two verses from Kendrick, and cameos from Grey’s Anatomy‘s Ellen Pompeo, Law and Order: SVU‘s Mariska Hargitay, Zoe Kravitz, Selena Gomez and more–became an international sensation when it debuted at last Sunday’s Billboard Awards, and now it’s the biggest song in the country. “Bad Blood,” pushed Wiz Khalifa‘s nostalgic “See You Again,” out of the top spot, and subsequently, Fetty Wap‘s break out hit “Trap Queen” falls to #3.


Congrats to Taylor Swift as well, who has notched her 4th #1 single with “Bad Blood.”
