Christian Rap artist Osaze has dropped his biggest record to date. With over 5,000 streams on Spotify alone in its first week, “Worldwide (Can’t Get Tired)” builds on the momentum from 2020’s previous singles, “Turn Up To Da Max” and “All on Me”. Osaze took his distinct southern flow and enlisted the support of Reach Record artist 1kPhew to create a trap gospel classic. The single release is supported in partnership with FiveTwenty Collective’s “FiveTwenty Presents” brand, adding additional validity to the songs already impressive resumé. With production from one of Christian Hip Hop’s most popular producers (PoetiCS) and Mixing & Mastering by a Billboard-charting engineer (Calvin “Food” Venus), the overall sonic experience is undeniable when it comes to any listener. As Osaze states, “just because you’re tired doesn’t mean you quit.” “Worldwide (Can’t Get Tired)” is available across digital retailers including Spotify where it has already been featured on more than 140 playlists.

Using instrumentals and a karaoke machine, he began recording songs and passing them out among friends and family. By 18, the hobby had become much more than just something fun to do and from there Osaze was born. Going through numerous name changes from Lil-L, Young Sarge, and now Osaze; the journey has been anything but a fairy tale. Currently working on his new project ‘Redemption’, Osaze allows us to see the transformation from secular artist to Christian.
“ God will respond to our cry when we pray, seek His face, and turn from our ways ” (2 Chronicles 7:14). It’s not too hard to see that our world needs healing and “We Want It” is Marcus Selders’ declaration for the world to turn back to the Lord! Marcus’ new single delivers a worship experience full of the word over a non-traditional trap style beat/melody. Listeners not only get a fresh approach to worship through the new single, but the song is full of scripture and saturated with heartfelt emotion that can be filled throughout the song! This is his first official song released under Rapture Ready Productions. “My heart has been burdened lately by all the social injustice and social immorality that has divided our world and caused so much chaos,” stated Selders. “It’s time for us all to do a heart check and truly seek the Lord so that as a collective we can begin to see a change and be the change the world needs.” Marcus is currently a faithful member under the leadership of Pastor Nathaniel Selders at Humble Beginning Outreach Ministry in Clinton, LA. He is married to Ashley Dashaun Selders and together they have two beautiful daughters Gabrielle & Aubrey. Marcus serves as music director and the worship leader at his church where he is passionate about authentic worship and helping and inspiring others to move their gazed spirit away from the worship leader and focus upon the object of their worship, God Himself.

As an artist, musician, creative, etc, you should be familiar with a press release or "media kit". Musicians specifically should know how to format and send press releases for music marketing and publicity. A press release is an official statement issued to newspapers giving information on a particular matter. Or in more modern terms, "a document or email sent to a blog or publication with specific details and info about something you're doing or something that happened." It's like giving someone "news" about you in a formal way. Below is how to structure a good press release: subject line : ARTIST NAME - PROJECT NAME - DATES body : Pitch your project, single, album, elaborate on what we need to be paying attention to. Explain your inspiration for the music, project, why it should be featured, what makes it unique. Let us know your tour dates, releases, anything else the audience needs to know. Give us a short artist bio and background, influences, style, etc. Any quotes or testimonials said about your work. ending: include social media links, music links, website, video links, professional photo And that's it. You don't want to give the editor too much work to do. They shouldn't have to go fishing for information deep inside your social media or website. (done that too much and it takes up too much time!) Here are 2 examples of a perfect press release sent to us that took no time to publish: Joshua Cadence JT Wicker D'Vo
