about

After the release of the self titled debut, Sheff's Kitchen, Knell Rashad & Kenju return after a brief hiatus with chill but catchy, Is This Love. ITL is the first single from their upcoming mixtape, Notes to Self and features the sultry, soul vocals of Ryan. Knell Rashad delivers rhymes about learning to love the life you live regardless of your circumstances, while pushing past the romanticized idea of love. Kenju joins Mello Music Group/QN5 Music recording artist, Substantial on engineering duties and leaves the production to Oklahoma producer, WizKid Beats. The result is a mellow banger one can easily fall in love with.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Life is a hopeless romance but I never learned to dance/
or to steal hearts just to take chance
never sweet talk a bitter trance we thinking love at first glance/
then words deny the advance
now acting out of character got righteous Villain saving you/
when evil heroes after you for vanity of our nature
from the other side of anger I pull a peace on war/
feeling safer in the danger know what I'm dying for
I suffer because I love her follow me through the Scriptures/
not really a lot to offer just time to rhyme proper
seeing life as a metaphor we in a psychiatric ward/
dumping my pills I seek the Lord
seeing no change within this world so
living in the love i find leaving me absent in my mind so circumstances can't confine
liberty is what I define

Chorus:
Is this love
I don’t know letting it go just to be sure
and if you comes back it’s real in fact
you can feel that you can feel that

Verse 2:
Feeling deserted, following heart through places inverted/
so bottoms up now views distorted so we depart
playing Frank Costello corrupting art/
all things were beautiful before we thought
we wouldn't surely die from seeds of doubt/
check the fruits rotten apples all we brought
thought it was knowledge but that ain't what we sought/
could've been love but that's what we lost
now back to romance ignoring flaws
just let it be while breaking the laws/
of physics won't force it moving you in awe
giving you the effects when God is the cause/
making this all possible though I'm beyond your logical/
to hear this through your optical working in olfactories to
make sure you smell success soon
the fresh air ain't typical in our nature it's mystical/
to follow God to the love that he knows

Chorus:
Is this love
I don’t know letting it go just to be sure
and if you comes back it’s real in fact
you can feel that you can feel that

Verse 3
Life is relation check the correlation/
temptation and sedation deception and stagnation
love is my inspiration no limitations
Psycholinguistic the language is prolific/
lost in the poetic sublime describes the method
telekinetic move you to the essence/
welcome to soul sessions respect the aesthetics
beautiful features tame the wildest creatures/
but the lust in us fiend for hourglass figures
leaving no time for gentlemanly gestures/
of coarse chivalry died for short lived pleasures
I'll follow love into forever avoiding the detours/
no evasive maneuvers heading straight for the future
traveling through gray matter hoping I don't lose you/
following my Savior to the heart of the matter
for the transplant I can't wait to see you greater

Chorus:
Is this love
I don’t know letting it go just to be sure
and if you comes back it’s real in fact
you can feel that you can feel that

Bridge:
What is love
can somebody tell me that
is it fake or is it real in fact
I want to know, I want to know, I want to know
What is love
can somebody tell me that
is it real or is it fake in fact
I want to know, I want to know, I want to know
