Dove-nominated artist Steven Malcolm has returned with the new single “Glory On Me” featuring Childish Major and Taylor Hill.
“Glory On Me” is a celebratory single grounded in faith and optimism. It all begins with a church piano and a soulful refrain sung by Hill, then gives way to three minutes of rapid-fire wordplay and deep-seated beats mixing worship music and rap.
Malcolm’s recent release The Second City debuted at No. 11 on Billboard’s hip-hop chart, received a Dove nomination for Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year, and highlighted not only his hip-hop credentials but also his Jamaican roots and reggae influences. “Glory On Me (feat. Childish Major & Taylor Hill)” follows the same path, with Malcolm glorifying his maker over a track that owes as much to the club as the church.
“It’s very rooted in hip-hop, but we give praise before the beat drops, so the song also has a real gospel foundation” says Malcolm, who wrote the track during a year dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic. “More than anything, it’s uplifting. It’s the song we all need in a time like this.”
“2020 was a year of discouragement, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel,” he explains, speaking from experience. “God’s still in control, and He still gets all the glory.”
“Glory On Me (feat. Childish Major & Taylor Hill)” is available HERE now.
