Today I’ll be answering the question “Why does Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” music video start differently from the audio track?”.
If you’re aware of the album “Damn.” then that’s where you’ve heard of this single before.
It gained mass popularity and made the likes of being used in the NBA Finals, 2K, and other honors that popular songs get.
But let’s talk more about the music video “Humble.”
Why does Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” music video start differently from the audio track?
To help the song make more sense. Damn, was an album that was made to be listened forward and backward. With that said, it furthers the narrative of Kendrick’s videos being known as pieces of art. Also, Kendrick Lamar kept the motto of “Damned if I Do, and Damned if I Don’t” in mind. With that comes putting all of your best ideas out there. And lastly, with the influence of mixedbyali, it helped finalize the piece of art we know as Humble today.
It Goes Both Ways
Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” was meant to be played forward and backward.
Kendrick’s videos = cinematic experiences
Historically speaking, Kendrick’s been known to make music videos that are considered masterpieces.
Yes, each one.
Thank you MixedbyAli
MixedbyAli is a producer and engineer that’s had a massive amount of influence on the creativity of Kendrick Lamar.
“Damned if I Do, Damned if I Don’t”
This is the concept, or motto better yet that Kendrick has admitted had an influence on the album.
With that said, that motto was applied to Humble because he wanted to get out all creative thoughts.
It appeared to pay off with having memorable scenes that gathered the attention of over 877 million views only 5 years ago.
