Kendrick Lamar released his fourth studio album, DAMN. to a shower of accolades and sales.
The album seated itself straight to number one in the US charts, and had the highest single-week sales than any other album this year.
To say it did well would be a gross understatement.
Lamar’s mum had the sweetest response to her son’s success.
And it involved lots of emojis.
