Kendrick Lamar's new album is the first to top the charts with "pimp" in its title.

Kendrick Lamar’s sophomore album, To Pimp A Butterfly, has just set another record… kinda.

According to Billboard, To Pimp A Butterfly is the first album with “pimp” in its title to be No. 1 on the charts. Previously, the highest charting album was Pimpalation by Pimp C, which landed him a No. 3 spot in 2006.

If you’re unaware, To Pimp A Butterfly set a Spotify record the day after it dropped for most streams in 24 hours at 9.8 million, breaking Drake’s IYRTITL & then his very own. It reportedly moved an estimated 365k units in the opening week as well.

We’ll continue to update you with more record breaking stats as time goes on.
