West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar has topped the UK album charts this week, with his latest record To Pimp A Butterfly. Lamar surprised many with the early release on March 16, as the album was originally scheduled for release a week later on March 23. However, the album was made available early via iTunes and Spotify to the delight of fans. To Pimp A Butterfly is the follow up album to Lamar’s 2012 major label debut Good Kid, MAAD City, which also saw great success in the UK. To Pimp A Butterfly has also charted at #1 in Australia and New Zealand, with the album predicted to chart at the top of the US Billboard Album chart next week.
