Sean released the song, titled "Deep Reverence," after responding to a fan on Twitter who asked for it.

In the track's second verse, Sean reflects on reaching out to Kendrick Lamar, a topic he previously discussed on Pull Up with Joe Budden earlier this year. Here, Sean chalks up any assumptions of an ongoing "Control"-inspired feud with Kendrick to miscommunication and ego:
"After what happened to Nipsey I reached out to Kendrick
It wasn't even no real issues there to begin with
Lack of communication and wrong information
From people fueled by their ego
It's like mixin' flames with diesel"
"Deep Reverence" will be featured on Sean's upcoming fifth studio album, Detroit 2. On Monday afternoon, Sean announced that the I Decided follow-up will be out on September 4 and shared its official cover art. Sean's last album—featuring collabs with Jeremih, Eminem, and Migos—debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

"Detroit, to me, is home but I feel like it's more than just a city, you know?" Sean previously said of Detroit 2, which marks a sequel of sorts to his 2012 mixtape Detroit. "It's, for real, a mentality."
Sean has also shared a run of Detroit 2-themed merch including hoodies, bundles, tees, hats, totes, and face masks. Prices start at $20 for the pieces, which can be found here.
