Lila Iké’s first musical reveal of 2022 is the powerful new single and video “True Love,” out today (Mar 31) via In.Digg.Nation Collective/RCA Records.
“True Love” is a love letter to herself. The song (produced by Natural High Music) and video (directed by Ayana Riviére) encourages us to choose love even through the darkest times.
Lila explains the song’s evolution and meaning.
“True Love is a song that I freestyled almost a year ago. At the time I was in a very emotional space and feeling a bit low in energy due to everything happening with the pandemic. I wanted to find a way to turn what I was feeling into a piece that would give others, who may be feeling the same, some hope. The most beautiful thing about this song is that a year later, I’m realizing this song was a personal love letter to my future self on healing and dealing with everything I’m experiencing at the moment. I hope it reaches everyone who needs this energy right now and that it gives them as much light as it gives me,” she states.
