According to the HDD's Song Revenue Chart, which is powered by music consumption tracking company BuzzAngle Music, for the sales week ending April 26, the 14 tracks that make up Lamar's acclaimed new album DAMN. generated a whopping $2,145,175 in sales and stream revenue.

By itself, "HUMBLE.," the album's lead single and Lamar's first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, generated $326,366 in revenue during the seven-day tracking period, of which $250,321 was from streams and $76,045 was from digital sales, while "DNA." ($280,481), "ELEMENT." ($184,321), "LOYALTY." ($181,378) and "LOVE." ($173,105) round out the top five.
