The song is a powerful electro-ballad with an explosive chorus and allows his unique vocals to shine. Posting on his Facebook account earlier today alongside the release, Duncan speaks about the meaning of the song:
“There are no boundaries, no limits when it comes to love. It’s the purest thing we have in this world and yet so many people, including myself, have to fight for it every single day. Because of their looks, their beliefs, their gender, their sexuality. Because of what others judge them for. LOVE DON’T HATE IT is a song about fighting for who you are and who you choose to love. Because in the end it is always your choice to make. It’s my answer against the hate in the world, that will always keep trying to break down what we crave most: love.”Duncan Laurence
The song is licensed to Universal Music Group, and comes at the same time that Laurence announced that he has signed with Capital Records. Duncan also performed the song live for the first time tonight on Dutch television show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’. Check out his performance here:
