Five years after the release of his sophomore album, East Atlanta Love Letter, 6LACK swoops back into the R&B sphere with his new single, “Since I Have a Lover.”
In the video by Andrew Donoho, 6LACK floats through Atlanta while embarking on a reflective journey about his newfound love. “Feel like a million bucks or somethin’/ Feel like we need to be up to somethin’/ Not tryna press my luck or nothin’/Don’t wanna love you just for fun,” he sings in the first verse.

6LACK’s third album, Since I Have a Lover, will drop March 24 via LVRN / Interscope Records. Fans can pre-order the album here. In 2018, East Atlanta Love Letter enjoyed success after netting a top three entry on the Billboard 200 upon its debut.

Or, as Yachty says with a mischievous smile: “I […]
