Rapper Kendrick Lamar has released a new single track ‘The Heart Part 5’ just days before the release of his new album.
The 34-year-old artist will release his latest album Mr Morale & The Big Steppers on Friday, May 13th.
‘The Heart Part 5’ was released with a music video in which the rapper’s face changes into several deep fakes. Some of them are OJ Simpson, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, Kobe Bryant, Kanye West and Nipsey Hussle.

Kendrick Lamar releases new single ‘The Heart Part 5’ with music video.
The music video for ‘The Heart Part 5’ was directed by Dave Free and Kendrick Lamar.
Lamar’s song lyrics begin to line up at the same time as the person he resembles in the music video.
For example, when he’s Kanye West the song talks about bipolar disorder, while when he turns into Nipsey Hussle he sings about murder. Hussle was shot and killed in 2019.
The song is ‘I am. All together.’
Beach Noise, which included Matt Schaeffer, Johnny Kosich and Jake Kosich, served as the producer for Heart Part 5.
On the other hand, Kyle Miller and Bekon played instruments on the latest tracks.
‘The Heart Part 5’ is said to be a sample of Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Want You’.
‘Part 5’ is the latest track in Rama’s long series of singles entitled ‘The Heart’. Artists usually delete tracks before sharing a much broader project.

One of the fans said, ‘Kendrick is undefeated and has his own league.’
The second user said, ‘There are artists who pay more than 6 digits for the Marvin Gaye sample. So that’s all Kendrick Lamar uses as a comeback.’
A fan shared his feelings about Lamar’s latest track on Twitter. The tweets start with ‘I’m doing this for the culture’ and end with ‘I’m doing this for the culture’. The song hits hard.’
The Compton-born musician has maintained a low profile since releasing his acclaimed album Damn in 2017.
