“Shake Heaven,” Montell Jordan and Beckah Shae (Victory World Music)

Victory World Music, the music division of Victory World Church, has released Shake Heaven, the first single off the album of the same title, featuring its worship pastor, former R&B star Montell Jordan, and up-and-coming Christian R&B star Beckah Shae. Shake Heaven, the church’s first studio album, drops August 23 across the United States.

Jordan, who enjoyed a Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit with This is How We Do It in the 90s, is clearly enjoying his new season. In an interview with New Release Tuesday, Jordan says his “only objective at Victory and with this project is to create an atmosphere of worship where God truly inhabits the praises of His people.” With more than 105 nationalities worshiping at Victory World Church, it certainly would appear that Jordan is poised to make that happen.

“What I did in music from a worldly perspective I wanted to do better and bigger for Christ,” he says, “What I did in the world was make songs that made you want to party, want to dance and want to put your hands up. Now, I want to make that type of song for God’s glory. That’s how we came up with this song, “Shake Heaven.” What’s funny is that the song includes the lyrics, “I’m gonna shake Heaven, this is how we do it.” I told Jack and Beckah (Shae) that I didn’t want to include those words and they said, “You have to!” It just seemed to fit perfectly how God brought me out of the world and gave us a song that brings glory to Christ.”

SHAKE HEAVEN Lyrics
Victory World Music featuring Montell Jordan and Beckah Shae

What’s it gonna look like, what’s it gonna be like
What’s it gonna sound like, I wanna know
We’re on a mission to get God’s attention,
Heaven is a listenin’, so here we go

The angels all around are crying holy, holy, holy
Praise Him with a sound that gives him glory, glory, glory
Are you ready now, get ready now I’m ready
Let’s all shout it out, start shouting now!

Gonna shake heaven, gonna shake heaven
Join in together, join in together
This is how we do it; this is how we do it
We’re taking back the music, taking back the music

And all the angels say
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey

Everybody stand up, go on put your hands up
Recognize the God of Power and Might
His love’s so amazing, He loves me like crazy
And now I’m walking in His marvelous life

The angels all around, are crying holy, holy, holy
Praise Him with a sound that gives Him glory, glory, glory
Are you ready now, get ready now I’m ready
Are you ready now, get ready now I’m ready
Are you ready now, get ready now I’m ready
Are you ready now, get ready now I’m ready
Let’s go shout it out, start shouting out

Gonna shake heaven, gonna shake heaven
Joining together, joining together
This is how we do it; this is how we do it
We’re taking back the music, taking back the music

I’m gonna shake heaven, gonna shake heaven
Join in together, join in together
This is how we do it; this is how we do it
We’re taking back the music

And all the angels say
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey (C’mon now)
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey

Lift high the Name above all Names, Jesus
We can live today because His grace freed us
(Glory, honor and power forever and forever Lord)

Gonna shake heaven, gonna shake heaven
Join in together, join in together
This is how we do it; this is how we do it
We’re taking back the music, taking back the music

And all the angels say
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey
Oooh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey
