Kendrick Lamar took his flair for the dramatic to a new level earlier this year when he included “We Cry Together,” a five-minute argument between himself and Taylour Paige starring as a couple, on his album both expected. Mr. Morale and Big Steps. Unless you’re some kind of masochist, you probably haven’t revisited this song much since; it fell 81 spots after its first week on the Hot 100, from No. 16 to No. 97. But Lamar somehow thought that wasn’t enough, so he shot a whole “short film” around it. him in March 2020, now available as a music video.
