After initially teasing the track back in April, Lecrae releases a visual for his song “Wheels Up.” This track marks the first collaboration with California singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy. “Wheels Up” is about Lecrae’s thankfulness for his success and his restoration through problematic times.
In the video, Lecrae is in a flight, alluding to the song’s title and him “taking off.” He raps earnestly about almost losing hope but then relying on God:
“Lord God, please loosen up my grasp, I been brokenhearted, mind departed, stopped and started, lost my hope and lost my way. I let my lust done bring destruction, no discussion with the God who gave me grace. 5:46 in the morning, mind still turning, God had to bring me back.”
Last month, Lecrae dropped his tenth studio LP Restoration via Reach Records. The 14-track project sees additional appearances from YK Osiris, Marc E. Bassy, John Legend, Jozzy, Kirk Franklin, DaniLeigh, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Gwen Bunn. In other news, Lecrae is also releasing his second book, I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion, But Found My Faith on Oct. 13th.
