For those already anxious for a To Pimp a Butterfly follow-up from Kendrick Lamar, good news: He debuted a new song on The Tonight Show Thursday night. “Untitled 2” clocks in at around five minutes long, and explores Lamar’s backstory and his relationship with America.

Lamar’s emotion builds throughout the song and reaches its triumphant peak at the end, as Lamar repeats, “You ain’t gotta tell me that I’m the one,” and finishes with, “Yes, I’m the one.”
