Believe it or not, it’s been nearly five years since rapper/singer 6LACK released his sophomore album East Atlanta Love Letter. He’s seemingly been everywhere since, with him popping up as a featured guest on the tracks of more than a few of his peers and even releasing his EP 6pc Hot back in 2020. He’s ready to step back into album mode now, however, announcing that his newest project Since I Had A Lover will bow this month and dropping the set’s title track as its lead single.

“Since I Had A Lover” finds the performer reflecting the ways in which love has changed his life. With a lingering guitar providing the main melody, he goes into them in detail. “Since I have a lover, no more lonely nights / The type of love that you supply, can’t televise," he sings during the song’s second verse. “Don’t need advice, plus you my vice, like what I like / You light my fire, you get me high, reach a new height.”

For the song’s music video, he further illustrates this point. We see him falling from a gray, stormy sky into an empty house. However, as soon as he opens the door, the world takes on color. He eventually strolls down the street to see a world full of love and life. It’s enough to eventually make him levitate and float through the sky as he sings.

“‘Since I Have A Lover,’ the title track, is the highs of having a healthy love, compressed into song format. It’s a note to self, that I’m no longer who I was or where I was, and that there’s a bigger purpose starting to reveal itself in the things I create,” 6LACK said in a press release. “We are simply pushing love, because it’s needed. The verses are short and serve as a moment of acknowledgment for how I feel, and the chorus is less of a lyric and more of a feeling. It’s an exhale, it’s relief, it’s trust, it’s happiness, it’s surreal.”
