Blessings (feat. Ty Dolla $ign) (Single) [edit]
by Lecrae | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: January 27, 2017
 

Lecrae is taking a shot at radio with his new single, “Blessings,” that drops tomorrow (January 27). After more than a decade in the industry, the Atlanta MC has hustled his way through the independent scene often carrying the sometimes-dreaded title of “Christian rapper.” But perhaps that label is what will make his version of “Blessings” stand out, as he explained to HipHopDX before his show at The Roxy on Wednesday (January 25).

“I get to change the narrative a little bit, let people see some of the behind-the-scenes of what I mean when I say it and my perspective,” Lecrae says. “My thing is just like I always tell people before you complain, be grateful you got breath to complain with, just appreciate the little things. Just the small blessings that you just have. You woke up, you can walk and you’re alive. We lost people last year, so just all those little things.”

The track features Ty Dolla $ign, who Lecrae met at SXSW through mutual connections around the time he was crafting the first Church Clothes mixtape four years ago. The Los Angeles artist appears on another song of the same name that was part of HipHopDX’s Best Albums of 2016, Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book. Not to mention Big Sean’s “Blessings,” which peaked at #28 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list in 2015. But Lecrae knew “Blessings” was the right name for his song.

“We already had the song in the can. I remember because we were actually working out here and we had the song in the can and then Chance’s project came out and I was like, ‘Dang,’” he says. “But it was like, man, we could have called it ‘Count It Up,’ or something like that, but I felt like it took away from that whole moment, so it was kinda like, man, it’s all love. A good song, everybody you move on. I’m just gonna troll America.”
