Christian musician Eric Jamal recently released a catchy song to usher in the Spring season. The young artist from Marks, Mississippi, who has been in the music industry for about a decade, keeps developing and reinventing his music to stay fresh and trendy. As a follow-up to his last single, “Dearly Beloved,” “Pray” is a catchy gospel rap song with an up-tempo production guaranteed to get the audience moving to the lyrically rich track.
Eric Jamal has evolved as an artist over the years and has drawn influence all over the music space to create his version of God-inspired Hip-Hop. Notable artists like J-Cole, Lecrae and Joyner Lucas have influenced Eric Jamal throughout his career, and he’s doing justice to his music style and attracting attention to his craft. Modern-day music barely has any artist making God-inspired Hip-Hop music, and Eric Jamal has so graciously taken the mantle. He has delivered something to kick-start the movement.
His love for Jesus and his deeply-rooted lyrical ability inspires him to create, and this new single lends credence to the fact that he has a lot of great songs in store for his fans and lovers of Gospel Hip-Hop. Eric Jamal has such an interesting story that never included plans for him to become a musician. For many years, Eric never saw himself as a musician or thought he was going to be the subject of musical conversations. The only sign he saw as a young boy happened in 11th grade when his teacher gave his class a writing assignment on the Great Depression. Rather than write like every other student, Eric chose to write a poem. This signaled the beginning of great things to come while Eric himself had no idea he inadvertently had written his first rap.
From that point, Eric grew and developed his musical talents. Today, he’s risen through the ranks and is setting a pace in the gospel Hip-Hop world. “Plays,” his latest single, is available on all streaming platforms and currently racking up all the streaming figures. With a single like “Plays,” Eric has set a standard that his audience will keep expecting him to improve on. While everyone enjoys the recently released single, Eric is back to work creating his next masterpiece to further propel his career.
As he hopes to continue giving his best to his music career, Eric Jamal is focused on growing and inspiring more artists to talk about God in their songs. He strongly believes the world can use more consciousness and reminders about God, especially during these uncertain times. His five-year goal is to break into the mainstream music scene, grow his audience globally, get his music on global charts and become a force to reckon with in both Hip-Hop and Gospel music genres. Eric Jamal promises that there’s more where “Plays” came from, and he’s committed to sharing his gifts with the world.
