Track of the Day #30: Kendrick Lamar – ‘ELEMENT.’

This is one of the best tracks from an album that will be near the top of every Album of the Year list come December. This song is all about the James Blake produced beat, the piano hook switches the beat away from the steady and determined flow of the verses. This chilled piano hook contrasts the violent, erotic imagery of the lyrics, creating one of the most interesting moments on DAMN.
