Kendrick Lamar's new single "HUMBLE.," the first off his forthcoming fourth studio album due out this Friday, is set to debut at No. 2 on this week's Billboard Hot 100 when the chart is published on Tuesday (April 11).

While the record likely won't find a home on anyone's list of Kendrick Lamar's best songs of all-time, "HUMBLE.," produced by Mike WiLL Made-It, is now the highest-charting single of Lamar's career as a lead artist—"Swimming Pools" peaked at No. 17—and the highest-debuting rap song on the Hot 100 since Eminem's "Not Afraid" debuted at No. 1 in 2010.

"HUMBLE." is Kendrick's third single to reach the top 25 of the Hot 100, joining the aforementioned "Swimming Pools" and the recently-released, non-album single "The Heart Part 4."
