Kyle Works His Magic in “Not the Same” Video

Building off the success of his Lil Yachty-assisted single “ISpy,” Kyle is back with “Not the Same,” a visual for his new song appearing on the forthcoming Sleight movie soundtrack.

The video takes us through a fictionalized account of Kyle’s everyday life, except, in this reality, he’s got a few tricks up his sleeves. Throughout the vid, we see the California-based rapper getting out of bed, making a bowl of cereal and walking to the corner store. We get to see him make a few things levitate along the way.

The song itself features a melodic hook and Kyle’s typically confident lyrics about being a cut above the rest. The hook for the King Mez & Ayo-produced track goes, “Not the same, we are not the same/Not the same, we are not the same/Don’t know your name, I don’t know your name/We’re not the same, we are not the/Not the same, we are not the same
We’re not the same, we are not the same/Not the same, we are not the same/We’re not the same, we are not the same.”

Toward the end of the video Kyle is shopping in a corner store when he notices a robbery in progress. He quickly halts the perpetrator by making his bat levitate, pretty much saving the day. Afterwards, he charms a lovely cashier by materializing a rose out of nothing, before leaving as suddenly as he came. Gotta love Kyle. You can peep the new visual for “Not the Same” below. Sleight is due out in U.S. theaters on April 28.
