Channel described the inspiration behind “Hate I’m in Love:”
“I was looking for a record to write to, about my love affair with lust. That’s like an oxymoron to say I ‘love’ my lust, but I wanted something to evoke how strong the pull of my flesh is, especially in seasons of doubt.”
The music video adds a little humor to the serious issue of hating sin. The visuals and concept to the video help reel you in and keep your attention. Channel explained the concept to the visuals as:
“The effort is to show people we’re all in this fight together and that I struggle just like you do. The world offers us so many things, but it’s important that Jesus is our main focus.”
Channel credits Moore, Tatum, Dixon and Perez for helping him articulate the concept in a relatable way.
