“Fireblazin’” by Capital Kings
Gotee Records’ Capital Kings released their new single, “Fireblazin,” available at all digital outlets. Along with the new single there a radio mix and two remixes, one of which is by Soul Glow Activatur, and a music video to go along with it.
“We’ve had the privilege of traveling all over the country and certain parts of the world this past year and what we’ve seen is people’s lives being changed,” shares Capital Kings. “We’ve learned to become part of something bigger than ourselves. ‘Fireblazin’ is a movement to tell the world exactly that and to tell the world of the hope we believe in.”
Since releasing their debut self-titled album in 2013, Capital Kings has been going non-stop, and 2014 hasn’t been any different. The duo started the year off with performances at the Passion Conference in Atlanta and Houston as well as TobyMac’s Hits Deep Tour, followed by the release of their first remix project titled REMIXD and were part of TobyMac’s Summer Shed Tour with Skillet & Lecrae. They will also be traveling internationally to Columbia, and Peru followed by a slot on the highly anticipated Neon Steeple Tour with Crowder and special guests All Sons & Daughters.
Capital Kings have become well-respected remixers with mixes for numerous artists including TobyMac, Britt Nicole, Colton Dixon but have added to that by co-writing/co-producing the No. 1 single from Royal Tailor “Ready Set Go,” which they were also featured on. This summer, Capital Kings contributed their version of the popular GRITS’s song “Ooh Ahh” to the Gotee 20th Anniversary compilation Twenty Years Brand New.
“Do Life Big” by Jamie Grace
Jamie Grace released a music video for the single “Do Life Big.” The song is from her latest release, titled “Ready To Fly,” and we spoke with Ms Grace about it HERE.
“You Are” by Erica Campbell
Erica Campbell of Mary Mary has a new single titled “You Are” from her Dove Award nominated album “Help.” Listen below.
“Untraveled Road” by Thousand Foot Krutch
The tune has already hit No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Song sales chart and racking up more than 108,000 YouTube views and 3,200 likes, TFK frontman Trevor McNevan says, “‘Untraveled Road’ is about standing up for what you believe in. It’s about not being afraid to take the first step, or be the first voice. It’s about having the courage to be unashamed, and the faith you need to take a step before you can see the ground. The ‘untraveled road’ is symbolism for being at a crossroads, and having to decide which path you’re going to take. Sometimes it takes everything.” It is indeed noteworthy.
“All I Need” Is You by Lecrae
The newest single off of Lecrae’s 7th studio album, to be released September 9th, skyrocketed towards the top of the iTunes Top Songs chart, eventually peaking at number 1. “All I Need Is You” (listen below) surpassed Nicki Minaj’s single “Anaconda” that dropped the same day, and Jessie J’s “Bang Bang” on its way to acquiring the honor of top song on iTunes. This marked the first time that a Christian Hip Hop artist has hit #1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap song chart, and the first time a Christian Hip Hop artist has hit #1 on the iTunes song chart overall!
Won’t you agree with me that Lecrae is unstoppable?
“Light Me Up” by Kevin Max
Former DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline singer recently dropped a new song following news of his departure from Audio Adrenaline.
The song is entitled “Light Me Up,” and is off of his forthcoming “Broken Temples” album. The tune is an excellent one that reminds me of Coldplay with some bits of U2.
“Overwhelmed” by Big Daddy Wave
Big Daddy Weave announces the release of the music video for their current single “Overwhelmed.” Filmed on a trip to Tanzania with World Vision, the video captures the stunning landscapes of Africa and the children whose lives are impacted through the Christian organization. The video includes images of Big Daddy Weave members meeting the children they personally sponsor through World Vision for the first time, as well as documenting the recording in a World Vision school of the Maasai children’s choir heard on “Overwhelmed.” “Overwhelmed” is the fourth radio single from Big Daddy Weave’s latest album, Love Come To Life: The Redeemed Edition, an album containing three consecutive Billboard Christian AC No. 1 radio hits – “Love Come To Life,” “Redeemed,” and “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” – a career first for the band.
“Shweet” by Trip Lee
Reach Records have released Trip Lee’s new single “Shweet”. The rapper’s new album,”Rise,” will release on October 28th. This album is coming a month after fellow label-mate Lecrae drops his, I don’t know if this move is a good one. However, I am excited about both projects.
