Hidden Meanings Behind Kendrick Lamar’s The Heart Part 5 Music Video Explained – Latest News Today
A breakdown of all the things you missed in the newest music video and song by Kendrick Lamar, the single “The Heart Part 5” from his upcoming studio album, Mr.Morale and the Big Steppers.
“The Heart Part 5” is the fifth installment of Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart” series of tracks. It serves as a promotional single for Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers, Lamar’s fifth studio album, and is his first solo material since his 2017 album DAMN.
The track’s existence was first teased on April 19, 2022, when Lamar’s website, oklama.com, was updated with a page entitled “theheart.” This page linked to a large amount of draggable tan folders with one black folder, which was labeled “important,” being hidden within the mass of folders.
On May 7, 2022, the song was accidentally teased by Spotify through an updated description for the “This is Kendrick Lamar” playlist, but the description was quickly taken down minutes later.
On May 8, 2022, the song was officially released alongside the music video.
In the music video, Kendrick raps in front of a red wall and, using deepfake technology, makes several transformations into famous black figures such as Kanye West, Nipsey Hussle, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, O.J. Simpson and Kobe Bryant.
