Kendrick Lamar joins Beyoncé on the remix of her ‘Renaissance’ smash hit ‘America Has a Problem.’ The surprise collaboration, released on Friday (May 19) finds Lamar touching on recent internet topics including AI technology and Billboard’s controversial 50 Greatest Rappers Of All Time List, which had him at number two.
“Even Billboard, they know, after Hov, rightfully so,” raps Kendrick.
The former Top Dawg Entertainment rapper also brags about being “an honorary Beyhive” on the four minutes and 20 seconds-long track.
The duo have previously collaborated on “Freedom” from 2016’s “Lemonade” and “Nile” from “The Lion King: The Gift.” Lamar released his first album in five years, “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers,” last year, winning the Grammy for best rap album. “The Heart Part 5” also won for rap performance and rap song.
“Renaissance” also won big at the 2023 Grammys, with “Break My Soul” winning dance/electronic recording, “Plastic Off the Sofa” taking home traditional R&B performance and “Cuff It” earning R&B song of the year.
Beyoncé is currently on her Renaissance World Tour, which Forbes reports could earn the Crazy In Love singer over $2 billion, making it the highest-grossing tour of all time. The tour kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10 and is scheduled to run through major European and North American cities before climaxing at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans on September 27.
