"What Happened Was...." a new album from six-time Dove Award-winning artist KJ-52 x Poetics is being released today. The eight-song Christian hip hop/rap project from the artist and producer team is available on iTunes, Spotify and all other digital formats.
The eight-song collaboration, produced by Poetics, features appearances by Xay Hill, Dre Murray, V. Rose and others.
The album is a companion piece to a book of the same name that will be released soon. A radio single is set to follow the album release.
"Over the 20 years of doing music full time, I've accumulated a lot of unique experiences," KJ-52 says. "My hope and desire with my new book and new album is to share a conversation with you, the audience, about some of my greatest triumphs, joys and failures. 'What Happened Was...' is a compilation of true stories from my childhood, music, songs, touring and more. And each story comes with its own soundtrack to help you experience exactly what I was feeling when I was going through that moment."
KJ-52, who is based in Cape Coral, Florida, is a Guinness world record holder in freestyling and has garnered 6 Dove Award wins to-date, including taking home honors for song of the year for "Do Yo Thang" and "Never Look Away" and multiple album of the year wins for "Five-Two Television," "KJ-52 Remixed," and "It's Pronounced Five Two."
