“You can’t fake energy and you can’t hide love,” raps Philly’s Dell-P at the oepning of his new single “Here For It” — and it’s clear he’s not trying to hide anything with this one.

The song finds producer Donnie Boy chopping up classic soul records while singer-songwriter Wil Guice delivers a smooth hook, and Dell waxes poetic on romance from the most personal perspective there is: “They say art imitates life so I wrote this song to honor my beautiful fiancé @zainalove, I love you baby!!” he wrote on Instagram.

Guice’s melodic refrain on “Here For It” draws comparisons to celebrated Black women — Nina Simone, Rosa Parks, Michelle Obama, and Coretta Scott King — as well as famous Black couples — “you’re the Ruby to my Ossie Davis” is a particularly sweet line.

Clever as the hook is, Dell’s bars are the heart of the song — they’re sharp and commanding while also being loving and sensitive, and have a hell of a cadence: “Class and sincerity, you got a lot of it / My diamond, it’s obvious, you define what a goddess is.”

Dell-P says that “Here For It” is the first taste of the new album he’s releasing on Juneteenth; his last album, Make Emceeing Great Again, made our Philly 100 list last year. Take a listen below, and stay tuned to his IG for more updates.
