Kendrick Lamar dropped new song "The Heart Part 4" overnight, just hours after teasing fans with a cryptic post on Instagram. The track sees Kendrick aim shots at Donald Trump, among others, and stake his claim as being "the greatest rapper alive." Kendrick goes on to hint that a new album could be dropping soon by closing the track with, "Y'all got til April the 7th to get your shit together."
The song also features an uncredited appearance from Khalid. The simple vocal part, essentially a series of "oohs," appears during the intro. Khalid announced the news via Twitter shortly after "The Heart Part 4" hit streaming services.
I'm so honored to have been apart of this. I can't believe that my voice is on a Kendrick song. This is insane. pic.twitter.com/2OJjlO4vJ4— Khalid (@thegreatkhalid) 24 March 2017
