True God has been one of the most-consistent suite song creators over the years. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on many of these suite songs in his career’s infancy. Over the past decade, his abilities have grown to the point he can take a concept and just run wild with it, either through rapping or singing.
His latest Soul Revival 5 single, “Elusive Love,” continues this trend.
Over a beat that chops up a familiar sample, True spends the first half of the song lamenting over some of his lost relationships–even dedicating a verse to how he wishes his relationship with his child’s mother could’ve gone. Over the second half of the song, True goes smooth and sexy and talks about the ways he can make a woman fall for him. That is done while he still acknowledges his faults when discussing love. Essentially, he’s a man who wants love and wants to love. However, he knows that it’s harder than just saying “I want love.” Because of this, he’s stuck speaking on lost loves and hoping for the best every time he goes on a date–but expecting the worst.
The song is amazing in its breakdowns, so check it out below and support dope music in all its forms.
