Tracks And Features
Steven Crown appears on the album’s self-titled first track. The song recognizes God’s supremacy and crowns him “Master of the world.” This opening track is lovely in part because of the support singers, whose harmony and melody are flawless.
Solomon Lange is featured on the next track, “Jehovah.” This worship track begins with sizzling instrumentals intro and Samsong’s vocals singing how big and high his God is. This is another track that follows the theme of the opening track in referencing and acknowledging God’s supremacy. Again, Lange’s Hausa lines/verses can be heard as the backup vocals complement the song with sonorous vocals.
The song “Wave Them Away” follows and has a pleasant, grooving amapiano vibe as it sings about how God waves away his people’s issues. Making a triumph song that people can dance to while worshiping God is the song’s goal.
Prosper Ochimana is on “Hallelujah,” and what a track this is. It is targeted at the resurrection story, and the duo sings of the glory of God as it fills the earth while men and angels sing the sounds of the spirit by chanting hallelujah.
Samsong has a funky track style that we’ve grown to enjoy, and “I’m A Miracle” is no exception. The lovely song talks about God’s favor and how it amazes observers, who should refer to him as a “Walking, Talking Miracle.” Samsong’s lyrics on this song imply that God has continued to provide for him and that he is a beneficiary of God’s goodness.
“Heavens Champion” is a chant-like jam with background vocals chanting while Samsong sings prophecies to the listeners and reminds them of the blessings they enjoy in Christ. He says in his lyrics, “Stand up for Heaven’s Champion.”
Enzo seamlessly transitions in on this project’s final song, “Blessings,” which is also one of the best songs. The song encourages listeners to count their blessings and consider the work of God. The melodic stringy chords and Enzo’s verse, which is in his regional dialect, further enhance the beauty of this already cool and calm track. The song urges listeners to testify; many will find the “Siyabonga” lyric and mood at the song’s conclusion to be their favorite part.
