Artist Information:

Kendrick Lamar is a well-known American rapper and composer, hailing from Compton, California. Kendrick began to break to the music scene after a set of mixtapes in the early part of his career. His first commercial and solo album was released in 2011; the title of the album was *Section.80*. He often discusses social issues and personal struggles of his own life. The artist has won several accolades, including many Grammys. His lyric style is detailed storylines and strong messages. Kendrick has worked with several A-list musicians and is considered one of the best rappers. And his rapping style includes many elements of the sub-genre, often styled with jazz, funk, and spoken word poetry.

Annotations and Meaning:

The track I Feel Something full of deep emotion and personal struggle. "I'm up and down, I'm unenthused" is one of the first lines of the song and says so much about where he is emotionally, probably in leaving TDE and pressure to continue music output. Line means that Kendrick has been battling with his feelings and expectations. The following line is, "Happy then I'm paralyzed by other moods", meaning that Kendrick's happy moments tend to be negated by moods of depression. In a second, he turns to the point of being paralyzed by bad mood. It shows how quickly his emotional state can change. "To see there's an exit is impossible / Chasin' worry, chasin' program / Distorted the ways of the world again" are the lines that tell us how to be entrapped and always worried. Through the metaphor, this could symbolize unrealistic beauty standards in the fashion industry, which is pointed out in the song's connection to a CHANEL fashion show. This perfectionism gives rise to one's distorted self-image and an infinite worry over one's appearance. Quite repetitively, both Kendrick and Imani Selina let loose the chorus: "There's a hold on me, and it strengthens / There's a troubled spirit, hard to explain, yeah, yeah / I feel somethin', I feel somethin'." Again, this repetition reinforces the firm grip of emotions while explaining that their spirits are troubled inexplicably. Both reverence and pain indicate the complexity of the emotional experiences. This feature underlines the complexity of experiences connected with the track. Imani Selina in the same Chanel fashion show complemented the voice of Kendrick in beautiful harmony. Finally, Imani Selina, a new signee to pgLang, brings her experiences and perspectives into the fold, which only broadens the meaning of the song.

I Feel Something Song Lyrics

I Feel Something by Kendrick Lamar


[Featuring Imani Selina]

I'm up and down, I'm unenthused
Happy then I'm paralyzed by other moods
Temporary pleasures runnin' out of fuel
To see there's an exit is impossible
Chasin' worry, chasin' program
Distorted the ways of the world again
Good decisions, wishin' I knew more of them
Concepts of you and who I am

There's a hold on me, and it strengthens
There's a troubled spirit, hard to explain, yeah, yeah
I feel somethin', I feel somethin'
Sometimes reverence (Huh)
Sometimes pain (Huh)
Sometimes both of them, it's hard to explain, yeah, yeah
I feel somethin', I feel somethin'

Kendrick Lamar feat. Imani Selina]
There's a hold on me, and it strengthens
There's a troubled spirit, hard to explain, yeah, yeah
I feel somethin', I feel somethin'
Sometimes reverence (Huh)
Sometimes pain (Huh)
Sometimes both of them, it's hard to explain, yeah, yeah
I feel somethin', I feel somethin'
