The eligibility time frame for the 60th Annual Grammy Award nominations ends on September 30. With that date approaching, conversations about potential contenders for top categories – like Album Of The Year – are starting to heat up.

Kendrick Lamar continues to make himself a frontrunner for the AOTY honor. The Compton artist’s Damn is not only one of the best-reviewed projects of 2017, the double platinum LP is a huge commercial success as well.

Damn spent four non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200. Kendrick’s latest body of work has also remained within the Top 5 on the chart for 20 straight weeks.

The album hosts the Top 20 songs “DNA,” “Loyalty,” “Element,” and “Humble.” The latter track hit #1 on the Hot 100.
