As we wait for word on whether rapper Kendrick Lamar will drop a new album this year, the “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” rapper has shared the lyric video for “i” — his inspiring and uplifting single from that much-anticipated LP. Directed by Christian San Jose, the lyric video for the track rides along on a sample from the Isley Brothers’ 1973 soul hit “That Lady.” The video features dozens of people making that two-handed heart symbol along with footage of Lamar performing onstage.

The real highlight and star of the video however goes to the lyrics. If the rapper’s super fast pace and striking imagery as well as impressive rhymes made it difficult to keep up with, this video puts the spotlight back on Lamar’s words. “Dreams of reality’s peace / Blow steam in the face of the beast / The sky could fall down, the wind could cry now / The strong in me, I still smile,” Lamar raps on the track.

As he works on a follow-up to his 2012 breakthrough LP good kid, m.A.A.d city, that may or may not be done in time for a 2014 release, this single takes on a happier, lighter and fun mood as compared to Lamar’s previous works including “Swimming Pools,” “Poetic Justice,” and “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

Check out the lyric video for “i” below.
