    Kendrick Lamar is number one on the Billboard 200. His new album, Damn., set the 2017 record for most sales in a week, selling 603,000 equivalent album units. That's the most units earned by an album in a single week since Drake's Views debuted at number one with 1.04 million in units back in May of 2016. Drake previously held the top spot for 2017 with 505,000 units after he released More Life.

    DAMN. marks Kendrick's third consecutive number one album. Last year's untitled unmastered top the charts as well as 2015's To Pimp A Butterfly. DAMN. also set a new week sales record for Kendrick.

    Not being one to rest on his laurels, Lamar followed up his set at Coachella this weekend by announcing a summer tour. The tour will begin July 12th in Phoenix, Arizona, and find the rapper traveling across North America hitting many of the major cities, including Houston, New York, and Chicago. The concert series will come to a conclusion with a hometown show at Los Angeles' STAPLES Center on August 6.

    Tickets for the Damn. tour go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 28th at Ticketmaster, with an American Express pre-sale starting Tuesday, April 25th. If it wasn't clear already, it seems as if 2017's summer, and maybe beyond, is going to belong to Kendrick.
