7/17/2012 - "Move (Chasing After You)" The Official Theme Song For The Move Tour Premieres Today
“MOVE (Chasing After You)” the official song to compliment the MOVE Tour premieres today featuring BET's "Sunday Best" phenomenon Jessica Reedy, Stellar Award Winner Da' T.R.U.T.H., Dove nominees B. Reith and Jai, Stellar Award nominee The Ambassador, singer/producer/hip hop lyricist Sean Simmonds, and emcee/producer/recording artist DJ Mal-Ski. The song will be performed live nightly and will be available for purchase at all concert dates. It is the first single from the upcoming CD, “Xist Music Presents: MOVE Vol. 1” releasing August 28, 2012.
The explosive track was created by the MOVE Tour’s drummer, Darion Javon of NuFlow Productions and co-produced by Xist Music’s president, producer/writer/artist Sean Simmonds. The anthem embodies the tour’s purpose: to encourage people to move wherever God is and whenever He calls in order to have a powerful relationship with Him.
The song’s intro kicks off with the tour’s emcee and host, DJ Mal-Ski encouraging listeners to throw their hands up and prepare to worship the Lord. Jai, known for her high-energy stage performances follows with the song’s catchy hook she created based on her life-long commitment to follow Christ Jesus.
Each member of the tour’s hip hop artists also penned their own verses. Da’ T.R.U.T.H.begins the cypher by stressing his joy to be alive as he stays tuned-in to go wherever God wishes to take him. B. Reith professes that King Jesus is his master and he is His slave, and The Ambassador follows proclaiming that his dedication to Jesus is strong and undeniable due to the mercy, grace and the new start he was given.
Sean Simmonds brings his unique style of vocals and hip hop lyrics as he pursues Christ at all costs and tag teams with Him to remove fear and the enemy out of his life. Jessica Reedy closes the song with her heart-felt verse and melodic ad-libs regarding her love and dedication to her Lord and Savior. She says, "MOVE (Chasing After You)” is a song symbolizing true worshippers chasing after God's own heart by any means necessary. It reminds me that I should never stop running after God."
