  • Steven Malcolm Counts His Blessings And Exalts His Maker With New Single
    on April 7, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Nashville, Tenn. IVAV (a division of Curb Word Entertainment) recording artist Steven Malcolm is still riding high on the success of his Dove-nominated album The Second City. Malcolm returns to the intersection of hip-hop, pop, and forward-thinking gospel music with "Glory On Me (feat. Childish Major & Taylor Hill)." Listen to the track here. "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 collaborator Taylor Hill, then gives way to three minutes of rapid-fire wordplay and deep-seated beats. Also featuring an appearance from Childish Major, "Glory On Me" is Malcolm at his very best, mixing swagger and spirituality into a rowdy, redemptive song that blurs the boundaries between worship music and rap. Malcolm has always thrived in the uncharted territory between genres. The Second City, his most recent release,[...]

It's easy for me to get caught up in observing rather than participating when I'm not the one leading worship, I'm analyzing everything. I remember looking around the room and seeing people with their hands stretched high, others with tears streaming down their cheeks, and still others on their knees with their faces to the ground. Suddenly it hit me. God is in this room. He's touching hearts. Changing lives. And I'm ignoring him." Continuing, Phil says[...]
