Rawsrvnt releases Love Deluxe
Published on May 3, 2012
Soul Deep Records is proud to announce the release of Love Deluxe – an expanded and rebranded version ofRawsrvnt’s Grammy-recognized No Ordinary Love album.
With a decade of organized ministry under his belt, Rawsrvnt, also known as Eddy Puyol from the reality TV Show Donald J. Trump presents The Ultimate Merger, has made it his mandate to share God’s radical and unconditional love with people all over the globe.
Love Deluxe gives listeners fresh takes on songs like “Jesus Jam” (now with KJ-52) and “On Fire” (now withRichie Righteous). The original version of “On Fire” landed on the Billboard Christian Rock charts and has attracted the attention of several members of the professional sports world. NASCAR driver Michael McDowellused the track as his official entrance theme and it was performed by Rawsrvnt upon request at Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade’s 30th birthday family brunch.
Love Deluxe also offers an organic, jam-band version of the previously released track “Be With You” which has been blended with “Beautiful” – an original worship composition by Rawsrvnt.
“I’m so proud of ‘Beautiful/Be With You’ because, once again, it shows how effective hip-hop worship can be when delivered from an unashamed platform,” Rawsrvnt says. “I would love to see this become a Sunday-morning-service classic sung in churches all across the world.”
The album also features a performance of the well-known congregational sing-along “Here I Am to Worship” with Dove Award nominee Audrey Assad in a way that’s never been heard before.
Other Love Deluxe highlights include a Jamaican-certified rework of “The Almighty” (that now features international gospel reggae star St. Matthew) and “No Ordinary Love” featuring Lisa McClendon. Here, Rawsrvnt takes on Sade’s iconic slow jam and repurposes it to celebrate the extraordinary love that God has for all of us.
