This has undeniably been an impeccable year for Kendrick Lamar. Since gifting fans with his third studio album, DAMN., the Compton emcee has gone on to produce a handful of riveting visuals, gone platinum twice, and achieved his first No. 1 single with "HUMBLE."
And now it appears as though K. Dot has earned yet another accolade for the standout track.
According to a new report, "HUMBLE" is the first rap song this year to break one million pure sales sans streaming. The Mike WiLL Made-It production is also Kendrick's highest-charting single of his career as a lead artist —"Swimming Pools" peaked at No. 17.

The lead single is also the highest-debuting rap song on the Hot 100 since Eminem's "Not Afraid" debuted at No. 1 in 2010.
