Recently, Toronto’s enigmatic new artist, IshGotGlo, released a captivating, slow-burning R&B track entitled “Idea of Us,” produced by the prodigious Dimi. The track is accompanied by a visually striking, cinematic music video that adds to the overall impact of the release.
Recently, we had the opportunity to engage in an interview with IshGotGlo, delving into the underlying themes of his latest release, “Idea of Us.” He imparted that the song is premised on the notion of one’s romantic partner not truly feeling love, but instead being enamored with the idea of being in a relationship. This subject matter is relatable to many individuals currently embroiled in “flings” or “situationships,” as it addresses the theme of commitment-related issues.
The track boasts a memorable refrain that intones, “she ain’t in love, she just in love with the idea of us,” which seamlessly segues into compelling verses set to the seductive, slow-burning production of Dimi.
