Kendrick hit the track running with a mile-a-minute flow. His super quotable wordplay already launched countless social media posts and captions.
"I'm an honorary Beyhive
Let's see why them diamonds don't be fly, they all CGI
You better get it off your chest like breast reduction
If she stressed over you, she stressed for nothin'"

The Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers rapper dropped some timely bars about the wave of AI infiltrating music. He went high-tech for the face-swapping visuals for "The Heart Part 5." However, Kendrick is still incomparable to computers.
"Hold up, wait a minute
Even AI gotta practice clonin' Kendrick
The double entendre, the encore remnants
I bop like tin men, the opps need ten men"

This is the third album in a row that the Grammy winners collaborated together. Kendrick first brought the heat to Beyoncé's "Freedom" on her 2016 Lemonade album. Then their epic BET Awards performance shut the stage down with flood and fire.

In 2019, Bey and Kendrick floated on "Nile" for The Lion King: The Gift. Their vocals blended into sonic serenity again. The mellow track transcends the diaspora, claiming connections to both Bey's spiritual side and African ancestry. Fortunately, the dynamic duo is back to making magic.
