When I first heard Kendrick Lamar’s “i”, I didn’t immediately like it as I have many of his songs. It felt too different and I guess maybe overly positive and upbeat. It took me a long time to finally see how good it actually is. This declaration of love for himself is also a suggestion of creating a positive outlook in life especially when things seem dire and uncertain. The instrumentals on the song is also a standout with its soulful mood.
The music video above shows Kendrick dancing throughout the street with a crowd of people behind him mimicking his dance moves. Check it out.
