Maverick City Sweeps The Grammys With 4 Wins & Joins Quavo In Takeoff Tribute: Watch Here

Maverick City had a full sweep at The Grammys this year! Watch their acceptance speech below:

In addition to all of their wins, Maverick City performed alongside Quavo and members of the Sunday Service Choir during a tribute to Quavo’s nephew and Migos member Takeoff. The song was written by Quavo and was heavily inspired by a post he shared on instagram shortly after the passing of his nephew.

After adding background and lead voices from Maverick City and the Sunday Service Choir, the tribute song became the backdrop for a tribute not only celebrating Takeoff, but also celebrating a long list of artists who passed away this year including Coolio, Stephen TWitch Boss, Anita Pointer, Bruce Gowers, DJ Kay Slay, Irene Cara Tyrone Downie, Hector Ramierez and many others.

Maverick City Music said they agreed to performance as a way to mourn with those who mourn as scripture encourages believers to do:

Paul tells us, “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15). Rejoicing is easier than mourning, but both are part of the human experience in this fallen world. And both are part of ministry.

Maverick City also shared that they wanted their performance “to raise awareness around gun violence and keeping the faith during troubled times.” The worship collective delivered a soulful performance of Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again.” Watch the full performance below.

Fans Give Mixed Reviews of New Justin Timberlake and Tobe Nwigwe Collab

Justin Timberlake and Tobe Nwigwe recently performed on Saturday Night Live debuting Timberlake’s newest single “Sanctified”. Prior to this performance, only a short portion of the song had been previewed in an NFL Wildcard ESPN commercial. Now that the full song has been released, fans are sharing their love and a few concerns. Considering the Christian references throughout the song, Christian fans are sharing their thoughts as well. While some major websites such as Rollingstone have reported the two artist’s collaboration as a Gospel release, a close listen to the lyrics from fans is bringing a new response that is correcting that perspective.

.

How Are Fans Responding?

The response from fans so far depends on the audience. Most agree that musically the song hits! Everything was done extremely well! With Adam Blackstone involved in combination with all of the artists featured, that was almost a guarantee. But, lyrically is where the divide comes in from the faith based audience and the general mainstream audience.

While it’s clear that the song has a strong sexual connotation, some from the Faith based community specifically feel that the correlation to the crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Glory of God might be taking things too far. It has also been stated that the song might have originally been created as a love letter to his wife Jessica Biel as the lyrics also seem to point to the Trolls star feeling grateful for someone who has led him through a dark time:

“You take all of my wrongs, move right along, take mе and fix my mess / Get me up whеn I’m low, hand on my soul, like you see right inside,” Timberlake sings. “I come out a new man, no blood on my hands, sanctified.” 

– Excerpt from Justin Timberlake’s “Sanctified”

Knowing that the song might be a love letter to his wife, what do you think of the lyrical direction? Was it still too much? Scroll down to read the lyrics and to see the performance in full. Then, share your thoughts with us on Instagram via the link below: We want to hear from you!

Today, 19-time GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, songwriter and artist, Kirk Franklin, debuted his latest song, “Try Love.” “Try Love “is the second single from Franklin’s upcoming album, Father’s Day, which will release on October 6, 2023. The track is the follow up to the album’s lead single, “All Things.”

Written and produced by Franklin, “Try Love” is a feel-good, mid-tempo anthem. The song makes listeners bob their heads while encouraging them to choose love and peace when facing life’s challenges to exemplify God’s everlasting love.
