Last year served up some fantastic Urban & Contemporary Christian music with accompanying music videos, and we’re certain that 2018 will not disappoint either. We’re only 3 weeks into the new year and there’s already been a bunch of new releases so here’s a handful of new videos that we think you need to check out and fall in love with.
1Jonathan McReynolds – ‘Not Lucky, I’m Loved’
Initially debuted during his Autumn 2017 ‘Life Room’ tour, Jonathan McReynolds released visuals for ‘Not Lucky, I’m Loved’ at the beginning of January. The track is the lead single from JMC’s forthcoming album, ‘Make Room’, that went on pre-order this weekend here > smarturl.it/MakeRoom
2Reblah & Cerose – ‘The Blood Of The Lamb’
“Biblically offensive” rapper, Cerose, teamed up with Reblah on this fire track released earlier this month. The video was put out on the GRM Daily platform and was mostly well received in the comments. A guy called ‘marxman 300’ commented, “Cerose come a long way since the bang bang days ??” and ‘southside juvy’ wrote, “These man changed there life and gave it to the lord big respect to you man.”
3TobyMac – ‘I Just Need U.’
Ok, so this is a bit of a cheat as it’s not technically a music video. But, we love the track and it’s always good to hear the story behind a song direct from the horse’s mouth. ‘I Just Need U.’ is the first new music from the seven-time GRAMMY® winner since 2015 about which he says, “It feels so great to be back in the studio again working passionately on songs that will hopefully meet people right where they are. ‘I Just Need U.’ is where I land time and again after my futile attempts to handle life on my own. I AM a born defector learning every day that the sweetest place and the only RIGHT place for me, is turning back and falling into the arms of a loving God.”
4Elevation Worship – ‘Do It Again’
Elevation Worship…swoon ???, one of our favourite worship bands, have made us fall even more in love with them in 2018 (and with Jesus of course) with not only this live video recording of ‘Do It Again’ taken off their 2017 album ‘There Is A Cloud’ but also the recent announcement about their new project ‘Elevation Collective’. The worship band have teamed up with Gospel music giants Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Israel Houghton, Travis Greene, Tye Tribbett, Kierra Sheard, and The Walls Group to make up ‘Elevation Collective’ and release ‘Evidence’, an album of revamps of some of Elevation Worship’s biggest songs. The first single off ‘Evidence’ is ‘Do It Again’ featuring Travis Greene & Kierra Sheard. The ‘Evidence’ album should be released early February but is available now for pre-order on iTunes with ‘Do It Again’ as an instant download.
5NF – ‘No Name’
NF had a massive 2017 topping mainstream Billboard charts last October with his 3rd studio album ‘Perception’. One of the singles off the album, ‘Let You Down’, has become his worldwide breakthrough hit topping all sorts of charts in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, New Zealand and Norway. 2018 looks setup to be a big year for the rapper starting with new single, ‘No Name’, released this weekend.
