‘IDK You Yet’ fits the lifestyles of many people all over the globe, in quarantine. With online dating site memberships increased by 700%, human life based on being social and intimacy. “I need you now, but I don’t know you yet because lately, it’s been hard…”

Moving along to ask the valid question “How can you miss someone you’ve never seen?”, the emerging Pop singer pulls at our heartstrings as the deep lyrics play out. What I like about well-written songs that dive deep into the psychology of a person, is that you can relate, feel like you aren’t alone after hearing the track, or feel closer to someone who identifies with what the record coveys. As the artist says on the song, he only has half of a heart. I don’t believe having half of a heart to give is abnormal. I think it’s weird when the person you love doesn’t know they aren’t getting all of you. Be like Alexander 23, and be upfront. I believe if the person understands where you are with your “Virgil” heart, you may gain a lover who will be able to love you unconditionally.
