Rating: 10 Stars (10 / 10)

It would be an understatement to say that duo for KING & COUNTRY have released RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. (WORD Entertainment) after three years of pivotal transition. Since the success of the Australian brother’s debut album Crave in 2012, Joel has married, while Luke had his first child and has experienced a life threatening illness. These experiences have come together in their latest musical offering, as they share 14 tracks filled with breathtaking honesty, fun whimsy and an utter determination to walk the Christian life with integrity.  A beautiful balance of the heaviness of their experiences and the light that they have found in Christ, RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. is a testament to their integrity and innate musical prowess as they mix dance and electro beats with simple melodies and striking lyrics.

V. Rose Releases New “Am I Trending?” Music Video Featuring Flame

v.rose am i trending

Clear Sight Music artist V.Rose releases the first music video “Am I Trending?” from her sophomore album, Forever After

When asked where her influence for this song came from V. Rose said “This song absolutely comes from within. It’s so easy to become obsessed with what other people think of you. ‘How many likes do I have on my Instagram? If I get more than this person I must be better.’ These are the kinds of thoughts that no doubt easily corrupt our minds. I wanted to call attention to it in this song, and show how silly it is when you say what you’re thinking out loud. It’s so important to keep each other accountable.”

Following four GMA Dove Award nominations, three for the lead single and No. 1 song “Fix My Eyes” from the highly-anticipated, sophomore album RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG., for KING & COUNTRY continue their journey toward the Sept. 16 release of the album.  Yesterday, the song “To The Dreamers” from the album was premiered during NBC’s broadcast of the 66th Emmy Awards as part of the network’s “The Shows That Touch You” campaign to promote this fall’s NBC lineup.

KJ-52 Preps “Mental” For October Release

kj-52-photo-03b

Crazy is a relative word, one to spin around and play with–the way a certain well-known rap artist flips rhymes about having faith even in this fallen world. Some say belief in God is crazy. Others might suggest not putting down spiritual roots in these crazy times is a sure sign of losing one’s mind. On his surprising new release Mental, hip-hop innovator KJ-52 finds the common ground with uncommon style, reaching out to seekers and skeptics alike.

It’s twofold: people who want to adhere to a biblical worldview are looked at as crazy, out of touch, intolerant. But what we’re trying to say is that there’s hope to hold onto when the world feels like it is going nuts,” he explains. “You can look around and see that every day–school shootings, bullying, adults self medicating and trying so many things in search of an answer.

Two weeks ago, Colton Dixon, the 19 Recordings’ Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist, released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Anchor. In its first week out, the album debuted at No. 1 on four charts, taking the top spot on both the Christian/Gospel Album and Digital charts, the Christian Rock/Alternative Album chart as well as on the Contemporary Christian Album chart. This makes Dixon’s second No. 1 album debut.

On release day, August 19, Anchor quickly climbed the iTunes overall albums chart to No. 4 and remained in the Top 10 throughout street week. The album’s first single “More Of You” continues to receive multiple adds every week and is currently No. 3 at Hot AC, as well as Top 20 in both AC Monitored and AC Indicator.

NF Arrives with Deeply Personal And Emotional Self Titled EP

Rating: 9 Stars (9 / 10)

Michigan resident Nate Feurstein is certainly not new to the music scene. Much like a diamond’s creation process, the artist who raps under the moniker NF has been growing his craft while dealing with multiple life events equivalent to the high temperature, high pressure events that form the aforementioned precious stone. Feurstein has dealt with physical abuse and the tragic loss of his mother to suicide. Thankfully, God has fulfilled his promise of never forsaking his children and helped NF through it all. That we all get to experience the resilient, awe inspiring gem that is the end result of the metamorphosis is an added bonus for the rest of us.

The self titled EP is six tracks deep, all produced by Tommee Profitt. NF takes on verse and melody responsibilities and delivers a masterpiece in the process. He spits bars throughout with a passion and fury rarely found with most emcees. The buy-in to his thoughts is both immediate and unwavering. NF follows that skill set up with an equally impressive command of the melodic control and delivery required for the choruses that he also provides.
