What is love? That’s a question that’s been posed countless times over the ages, and one with as many potential answers as there are people to ask it. (It’s also the title of a song by Haddaway, but that’s not important right now.) On new single Somebody Loves You, Dice Raw‘s first DJBooth feature since last summer’s Rear Window, the Philly representative takes a stab at defining what that four-letter word means to him. Beatsmith Khari Mateen provides an understated, keyboard-laced instrumental to back the artist’s poetic reflections, and DMV crooner Raheem DeVaughn does his thing on the chorus. An official video by Jason Nardis and Faheem Beyah (debuted in January, prior to the cut’s selection as a single) rounds out the package. Available now on iTunes, Somebody Loves You is slated for inclusion on a forthcoming, currently-unscheduled/untitled street album from Dice Raw.
