Tori Kelly Lends A 'Pop' Hand To Lecrae, Listen To "I'll Find You".
Anybody who knows me will know that I can’t wait for Tori Kelly to release her second album (rumor has it the album is coming out later this year), I loved 2015’s “Unbreakable Smile” so much and I love Tori, so this new collaboration she has recorded with rapper Lecrae, “I’ll Find You”, will do to calm my nerves and anxiety in a certain level until Tori’s album two first single is officially released.
“I’ll Find You”, released on all digital platforms yesterday, will be featured on Lecrae’s eighth studio album, which he will release in the upcoming months via Reach Records.
Don’t know who Lecrae is? What if I told you his last album, 2014’s “Anomaly”, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200? Interested now? He is one talented rapper, one that doesn’t rap about sex, drugs, and money, and I completely recommend you to check him out on Spotify or Apple Music. You won’t be disappointed by what you will discover.
“I’ll Find You” is Lecrae’s first collaboration ever with a pop artist, Tori Kelly in this case, and this could mean that Lecrae is thinking about trying to reach a new group of listeners and radio formats with his forthcoming album. We will see. But I would totally approve. If he promises to keep on including meaningful lyrics to his raps, and just invites pop artists to sing some parts of his new songs, and that will make more people find out about him and connect with his must-heard, noteworthy music, then so be it; get those pop collaborations, man! A whole new world of opportunities awaits. Can you imagine playing on Top 40 radios thanks to the Tori Kelly feature? That would be amazing.
On “I’ll Find You”, Lecrae has shared:
“Life is a precious gift. A gift we often take for granted until it is threatened. Pain can be a haunting reminder to appreciate every waking moment. So we wrote a song to share our hope in the midst of that pain. At the time of this song’s composition, some of our loved ones were battling cancer. We wanted to encourage them to hold on and tell them we are here waiting, hoping, praying, and fighting with them. Some have been released from their pain forever, others are still fighting. Hold on…”
Tori’s angelic vocals make the loving, “I’m there for you when you’re down, and don’t you try to even think bad things” lyrics of “I’ll Find You” resonate even more with you.
This is one beautiful peaceful rap-song song.
