Kendrick Lamar has released the first single off his upcoming sophomore album. Produced by Rakhi, “i” samples “Who’s That Lady” by The Isley Brothers—incidentally, Lamar’s own song talks more about self-love than the romantic kind. This song is a departure from good kid, m.A.A.d city, with the rapper taking a much groovier, up-tempo and uplifting approach with his lyrics.
Kendrick Lamar surprised us with something completely different. Head over to his Soundcloud account to hear the song for yourself.
