Behind the Song "ILYSM" Feat. Trip Lee

How It Happened

I was driving to Houston at the end of 3 week long tour in Texas and I felt inspired to write so I asked my team to put on some music they had in their catalog for me to free-style to. When I heard this track It was what we call a skeleton which just means it had no post production yet and was basic but I know how to hear the end result and I like to be very involved in the production anyway. After being on this tour my heart was so full of Gods love after meeting people every night and getting to share my story and pray with them. The lyric "I love you so much" came out of that place.

The Song

In my journey so far I have faced heartbreak, tragedy, abandonment, fear, and many more terrible things but God has always been there for me and has never turned His love away. That's why I love Him so much. Where I come from people claim they would die for you when they love you like family, but the only one who has ever died for me is Jesus and I have done nothing to deserve that kind of grace. Nonetheless, it is freely given every day. I love God so much and most days it can feel like me and Him against the world.

PSALM 9:10
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
— English Standard Version (ESV)
