18/05/2022: “Count Me Out” by Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar returns! 

When you compare his latest album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, with his earlier works, Lamar’s maturity as an artist is clear.

He was never one to shy away from difficult topics, but takes it to the next level here. 

‘Count Me Out’ explores growth – specifically Kendrick’s growth beyond someone else, and his pride in proving them wrong. 

And of all the songs on the album, this, for me, is the catchiest. The production is rich and ominous. It carries you along. But still, it showcases a range of styles, from the soft, choral beginning to the rabble rousing end.
