After revealing the artwork for his ‘i’ single last week Kendrick has today released the single out to the masses. Kendrick grabs LA producer Rahki for the production which includes a sample from Isley Brothers’ classic ‘That Lady’. The long awaited sophomore album from Kendrick is on it’s way. As for the single it’s not what I was expecting, it has a very radio friendly sound, an infectious hook and a mellow yet very creative beat. It’s a clever record in my opinion with the power to take Kendrick’s appeal to the next level, if there is one that is.
Imagine Dragons has a great album on their hands, with the infectious single as “Radioactive” was, it definitely deserved a remix.

Check out the performance which can be found after the jump.
