Adding on to the other accomplishment that his album DAMN. was the highest-selling debut week of 2017 thus far, the hits keep on coming for one Kendrick Lamar Duckworth.

After nailing the highest debut for a rap single in over five years, Kung Fu Kenny’s “HUMBLE.” has become his first solo chart-topping single on the Billboard Hot 100 foe the week ending on dated May 6th, supplanting Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.” But, that song won’t be the only track from the album that will be on the charts.

Kendrick’s second single, “DNA.,” will debut at No. 4 on the Hot 100, giving Kendrick two of the top five songs on the chart.

Kendrick reached the top of the mountain back in 2015, as a feature on Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.”

“HUMBLE.” is also number one on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart, where it’s been for three weeks, having been streamed 67.4 million times in the week ending April 20th. That number is also the second-biggest streaming week for a song of all time, only behind Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” (with 103 million), but leap-frogging Adele’s “Hello” (with 61.6 million).

Catch Kendrick perform all of these songs and more on his DAMN Tour with D.R.A.M. and Travi$ Scott.
