Lecrae enlists R&B/pop star Tori Kelly for his hopeful new song “I’ll Find You.” The rapper drops the track today (June 9) as a message for anyone lost at the moment. As Tori holds down the hook on the Frank E-produced beat, Lecrae raps about how his relationship with God has kept him steady and focused even through the toughest of times.
“They say ‘Don’t get bitter, get better’/I’m working on switching them letters/But tell God I’ma need a whole lot of hope keeping it together/I’m smilin’ in everyone’s face/I’m cryin’ whenever they leave the room/They don’t know the battle I face/They don’t understand what I’m going through,” spits Lecrae in the first verse.
The Reach Records founder has always put his faith at the forefront of his rhymes, which has resulted in independent success for years now, but this year has proven to be his best yet so far. The Grammy Award winner linked up with Ty Dolla $ign earlier in 2017 for the single “Blessings,” which is currently a Top 10 single on Urban Radio. Now with “I’ll Find You” showing off his pop versatility, Lecrae will likely garner even more well-deserved exposure.
Both “Blessings” and “I’ll Find You” are set to be featured on Lecrae’s forthcoming major label debut album under Columbia Records arriving later this year.
