"Feel the Love" is a song by American hip hop duo Kids See Ghosts, composed of Kanye West and Kid Cudi, released as the first track off their eponymous debut album Kids See Ghosts (2018). The song includes a feature from American rapper Pusha T. The verse is rapped by Pusha T, West makes gun noises and Cudi sings the chorus. The song appears in the 2018 Xbox commercial 'Jumping'.

Background[edit]

Pusha T's feature on "Feel the Love" was recorded less than ten hours before the release of the album.[1] Coming before any verses from Kids See Ghosts, his appearance stands as the album's first verse.[2]

Composition[edit]

The song features a verse from rapper Pusha T.

Pusha T has the only full verse on the track.[2] West contributes gun noises to it, which are reminiscent of his nonsensical performance on the single "Lift Yourself".[3][4][5] Kid Cudi sings "I can still feel the love" on the chorus.[2] The song is the only one on the album that includes no references to religion.[3]

The song was released on June 8, 2018 as part of Kids See Ghosts.[6] On the day of the album's release, multiple tracks were mislabeled on streaming services, including "Feel the Love", which was mislabeled as the third track on the album, "4th Dimension".[7][8]
