Why on earth are U2 doing a song with Lemar? wasn't he on the UK version of xfactor or popstars?

I remember his song "if theres any justice in this world you would be my guy and I would be your girl"

if you are being legit, than I really feel for you matey.

If it does turn out to be a sample, I've changed my prediction from Bullet to ISHFWILF

All my mates hyped for it who love Kendrick but arent big on U2, predicted Bullet cause i could see that going off but will see. Initially when i saw them on the writing credits i thought it would be a sample but now that they are actually listed as featuring i think they will play a much larger role..

Lebron James was listening to a few songs off the album in his Instagram story just under an hour ago. Looks like he stopped before he got to the U2 song though. Overall it sounds less jazzy than TPAB so far.

That's not what Kendrick fans said. Apparently they compiled all the clips into a YouTube video and it sounds like James did listen to part of the U2 track as Bono could be heard singing (per the fans). I haven't listened to it so I can't confirm.

Edit: just listened to it, I don't hear Bono's voice at all. Maybe he did preview the track just not U2's part of it.

Yea, I don't think Lebron played the U2 song.

This is an unfair generalization, but not sure I trust Kendrick fans to pick out Bono's voice lol I listened a few times with headphones directly from his Instagram. Some songs perfectly overlap a few instagram story sections but they're not always smooth transitions.

1st song is: Element (according to Lebron's caption)

2nd song: Feel (easily discerned from the lyrics)

Next song on the tracklist is Loyalty Ft. Rihanna but the third song in the clip starts with some singing (definitely non-Bono/Rihanna singing): "Love's gonna get you killed. A price (??) gonna be the death of you and you and me and you and you and me..." So maybe Lebron skipped ahead to the song called Love. After that intro, the next section is where a beat starts and Kendrick sings (/w some background vocals, think it's just multi-layered Kendrick though). The bass distorts the music so much here you can't clearly hear the music but there's nothing to signify it's the Edge playing the two repeating notes.

Anyway, it's the afternoon before a long weekend and I'm bored at work.

My guess, for some reason, is Stateless.

I watched the Lebron video, but I don't think I heard any Bono on it. Glad to hear a taste of it. Definitely a bit of a departure from TPAB, and it just makes me all the more excited to hear the album as soon as I can!

I agree with you. I think James intentionally skipped U2's track, probably to keep the hype going for it. Nothing I heard of that clip suggests any U2 involvement, not even a sample.

... lament all you want about the yutes and the culture,  but they couldn't buy that kind of exposure (though I guess technically they sorta did).

U2 don't need exposure. What do they think will happen? A bunch of teenagers will hear this song and jump on the U2 bandwagon so they can wait til they're out of college for a new album to come out?

How else would u2 grow their fan base?

Grow their fan base? I'm pretty sure they're like the most well-known band in existence.

I just graduated high school. Not one student in school knew who u2 was until one day someone started complaining where some songs came from. Next thing you know, all the kids around me we're on twitter messaging Tim Cook to remove the entire thing. That's the only thing they know about u2. And because of that people I talked to didn't even care to give their older material a chance. And the fact u2 doesn't get big radio play on the Pop stations like KISS FM doesn't help them grow with younger crowds since most don't listen to rock stations. I knew quite a lot of people who either have no clue who they are or won't even give them a chance because of apple.

I'm in Los Angeles and my class size was 1200 of a 4500 student school

It will be much more so once they are dead or otherwise retired, but I think U2 will be one of those bands kids "discover" around college age going forward, the way that my late 90's classmates would get into Pink Floyd, the Beatles, etc.

Exactly.

I know lots of high school kids, most of whom don't deserve U2. Shhhh, s'ok. Just listen to bubblegum pop or rappers bragging about their penises, and when you grow up and develop actual taste, you'll figure it out.

After all, I don't waste good bourbon on people who just want to get $h!t-faced on Coors Lite.
