Lecrae Drops “Blessings”, Explains Almost Not Naming it That

Lecrae’s new single “Blessings” featuring Ty Dolla Sign is finally here after a bunch of buzz was built over the past week or so. He spoke with HipHopDX and explained how the name “Blessings” might be redundant,

“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.”

He is of course speaking of Chance the Rapper’s song “Blessings” which has become a huge hit thanks to multiple television performances, including on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show.

Describing more of what motivated the song, he went on to say,

“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.”
