KSI makes a return to music after his 2020 debut album ‘Dissimulation.’ The new single, titled “Really Love,” also features singer Craig David and producer Digital Farm Animals. A music video was released along with the single.
The social media superstar, KSI is making a solid shift into the music industry with his debut studio album and his follow-up album. On ‘Dissimulation’ album, KSI collaborated with some big names in the industry such as Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, Jeremih, Trippie Redd, Lil Baby, Rick Ross, and Rich the Kid. So, we can expect a whole lot more collaborations on his upcoming second studio album.
On “Really Love,” KSI and Craig David try to figure out these feelings they have about a particular woman. Is this love? Or are they overthinking and analyzing these feelings? It’s always tricky.

In the first verse of the song, KSI drops some facts about his social media presence. He claims that there is always plenty of views around him. This is true, as he has racked up over 22 million subscribers on his official YouTube channel KSI, and his personal account ‘JJ Olatunji‘ raking over 10 million subscribers. His Twitter account has over 6 million followers and his Instagram presence with over 8.5 million followers. So, plenty of views all around him.
KSI also compares him to Muhammad Ali, widely regarded as the greatest boxer of all time. KSI himself has had a hand in boxing, and most famously had a fight with another popular social media personality, Logan Paul. KSI won the fight making his boxing record 1-0-0.
In the second verse of the song, KSI namedrops a few celebrities. He shouts out to “Wrecking Ball” song by Miley Cyrus, Stormi Webster the daughter of Kylie Jenner, and the popular sci-fi movie ‘E.T.‘
The theme of the song, stemming from the chorus of the song, does not really match with that of the verses by KSI. But rhythmically, it all works. And KSI has yet another popping track.
