The first single this year from Gold-selling, Dove Award-winning pop recording artist and songwriter Jordan Feliz, “Glorify,” became the No. 1 Most Added track at Christian radio following its release last month. Today, seven-time GRAMMY winner and multi-Platinum selling artist TobyMac and new Gotee Records artist Terrian offer their Bryan Fowler-produced vocals on the remix of the song.
With the original album version available now at digital and streaming outlets everywhere, “Glorify” follows a string of No. 1 and top 10 charting, pop-centric singles like “Witness,” “Changed” and “Faith” from Feliz’s Billboard No. 1 Top Christian Album, Future. Leading many of these songs while on tour with TobyMac in previous years, and singing “See The Light” (feat. Jordan Feliz) (RUSLAN Remix) on this industry icon’s The St. Nemele Collab Sessions released last year, Feliz finds TobyMac returning the favor, singing a verse on this week’s “Glorify” remix release with additional backing vocals by Terrian.
The soulful, R&B-tinged “Glorify” features a full gospel choir backing Jordan’s recognizable falsetto. In the vein of soulful acts like Earth, Wind & Fire, Al Green and Sam Cooke, Feliz pushes the song into wooden pew, altar call simplicity with a soaring praise-heavy chorus and signature propulsive beats.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever been as excited for a song as I am for this one,” Feliz says of the current single. “Glorify means ‘praise and worship,’ but the sub-context of the word actually is to acknowledge and reveal the majesty and splendor of God by one’s actions. For me, coming out of this hard season of anxiety, stress and messed up priorities, now all I want my life to do is to glorify. I want to reveal the majesty of God by my actions.”
Feliz wrote the fresh track with Jordan Mohilowski and longtime collaborators Colby Wedgeworth and Paul Duncan. Together, Wedgeworth and Mohilowski also co-produced the single. Sonically, with its healthy blend of pop, gospel and soul, “Glorify” forms a sturdy bridge between Future and Feliz’s next studio release, due in 2021. Lyrically, it offers some of Feliz’s most transparent work to date.
You gave a heavenly breath And now it’s air in our chests That’s why we’re singing it back to You For every battle You’ve won For everything that You’ve done And everything that You’re gonna do Seen too much to ever doubt it Feels so good I wanna shout it Yeah when I really think about it All I wanna do, all I wanna do is
Glorify Your name We came to glorify Your name That’s why we came That’s why we came To lift Your name Come on and sing (oh) Glorify Your name We came to glorify Your name That’s why we came Yeah, we were made To lift Your name All the church sing (oh)
So let Your glory be heard Until it covers the earth Don’t wanna wait for the rocks to shout We got a reason to praise This is the song of the saved No we ain’t gonna turn it down Everyday we got a reason Cause church ain’t only on the weekend Yeah, when I get that kind of feeling
Every day, every day we’re gonna glorify, glorify…
