Itching for more Kendrick Lamar? Well, thanks to the Australian pop songstress, Sia, we have some new bars from the Compton wordsmith. Last night (Sept. 5), she liberated her poignant banger, “The Greatest,” alongside a video sans Lamar.
Even though Kendrick’s verse isn’t long, his verse packs enough punch and fervor for everyone to enjoy. “I transform with pressure, I’m hands-on with effort / I fell twice before, my bounce back was special / Letdowns will get you, and the critics will test you / But the strongest survive, another scar may bless you,” he raps.
This year has been a busy one for Kendrick. After unearthing his 8-track EP Untitled Unmastered earlier this year, K.Dot has been beyond consistent on features. From Beyonce’s “Freedom” to DJ Khaled’s “Holy Key,” K.Dot has obliterated every single appearance with gusto. Recently, he also made appearances on Travis Scott’s “Goosebumps” and his TDE brother, Isaiah Rashad’s “Wat’s Wrong.”
There’s no word as to whether this track is simply a loosie, or if this will live on Sia’s next album. Either way, consider this a major win for everybody. Take a listen to the track featuring Kendrick Lamar, and also, check out the video without him below. Purchase it on ITunes.
