G.I.: In Love With You Featuring Keke Wyatt

Contemporary Gospel group G.I. had a breakthrough this year with their single Pray And Don’t Worry.” The Richmond, Virginia-based trio has a sound comprised of trap music, R&B and hip-hop. They are getting for the release of their Winning album on September 15th with the unveiling of their song “In Love With You” featuring Keke Wyatt. The straightforward love song stylistically expresses itself like old school soul more than anything else. Group member Branden Anderson commented on the song in a press release:

“In Love With You” speaks about love and the power it possesses.
It gives our listeners a dual message, speaking about the love of God
as well as the love of a significant other. The addition of Keke Wyatt
really put the icing on the cake. She definitely reaches that Urban
crowd that we’re trying to reach with our music so it was the perfect fit
and she killed it vocally!!”
Winning will be released on Shanachie.

Chynna Rogers Shares Practice From New EP

Philadelphia rapper Chynna Rogers shared her song “Practice” today from her Music 2 Die 2 EP. Her first single was “Seasonal Depression” produced by Heaven In Stereo and she hopes the EP will:

“Hopefully [listeners] leave a lil more confused than they arrived, being as it’s only 4 songs, I just want to get my versatility and creativity out in the smallest amount of space. Usually being understood is my priority, but seeing as though that’s pretty impossible I’d rather you learn about how I view certain life situations by the way I’ve chosen to express myself lyrically.”
Music 2 Die 2 will be released September 29th on Honeymoon and she will go on a tour of the United States days before the release.

Bradley left a message for his fans regarding the break:
