“IYKYK” is a play on the popular online acronym, meaning “if you know you know." The lyrics are meant to inspire listeners to find their identity in their relationship with Christ. “This song is not just for young people; we’re all faced with what culture celebrates – whether it’s status, wealth, or relationships. We’ve found that all of those things are temporary, but God’s promises are eternal,” says Davide Mutendji of ELEVATION RHYTHM.
ELEVATION RHYTHM is the sound of Elevation YTH, the youth ministry of Elevation Church. Formed in 2019, ELEVATION RHYTHM believes in writing and recording songs to engage hearts and bring a new cadence of hope to the current generation. Their song Never Walk Away claimed the #1 spot on Billboard's Christian Music Hot AC/CHR chart.
Their latest single IYKYK is about trusting in the big picture that the Lord is at work in your life right now, even if you can't see the details. "It is not HOW you know. It is not WHAT you know. It is WHO you know."
