Not Like You

“Not Like You” came about on the hottest day of the Summer. Seriously, it was one of those days where it felt like the AC didn’t even make a difference. I was hanging out with a group of friends at the beach and we started to talk about relationships (and lack thereof *cough cough*). Specifically, how crazy it is when someone genuinely blows you away and sets the bar so high to the point where you become 100% focused on them and everyone else kind of pales in comparison.

Not to sound like an expired fortune cookie or anything, but when you happen to cross paths with someone that makes you feel this way, go for it. Don’t wait, overthink, or play out a bunch of scenarios that may or may not end up taking place in your head. Don’t miss your shot and let this person slip away. That’s what the song is about for me.

The Video

For the video, I wanted to shoot a fun performance video that showcases different parts of Toronto during the Summer. When most people think of the Toronto or Canada, they normally picture it covered in snow, maybe the occasional igloo, or polar bear running around (seriously, that would be terrifying). I wanted to show the city off and make a visual that meshed with the warm, happy, and lovey feel of the song.

Lyrics

Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
I’m talking bout us
I’m talking bout you
They say it ain’t love but I know it ain’t true
Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
But they’re not like you

Now, tell ya friends to skip town
This weekend we bout to get down
You like, always make me smile
They like, 30 day free trial
Yup, and you never ask for nothin’ from me
They ain’t even good enough to be your understudy
Where ya at, want you wit me till the end
I was never good at math but you’re a twenty out of 10

Yup, okay that’s cool. They come close but they’re not quite you.
They’re look cool but I’m just like who?
Cause they’re not like you

Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
I’m talking bout us
I’m talking bout you
They say it ain’t love but I know it ain’t true
Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
But they’re not like you

Can’t lose, got no rivals
You’re iTunes and your friend’s like Tidal
Who can hate when you’re always lookin’ pretty and
Mini cooper waist booty like a mini van
Put his number in the trashcan
My snapchats last longer than your last man
I wanna kiss you everyday of every year
If you ever need a tribute, I’ll be first to volunteer

Yup, okay that’s cool. They come close but they’re not quite you.
They’re look cool but I’m just like who?
Cause they’re not like you

Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
I’m talking bout us
I’m talking bout you
They say it ain’t love but I know it ain’t true
Yeah, they might look cute
But they’re not like you
But they’re not like you
