tobyMac featuring Mr Talkbox, “Feel It”

Contemporary Christian superstar rapper tobyMac has released Feel It from his new album, This is Not a Test, and this may be my favorite tobyMac single since Lose My Soul from 2007!

WHAT A JAM!

Radio didn’t react as well as I would have liked to the album’s previous single, the decidedly less upbeat Beyond Me, but there is no doubt they’ll warm up to this irresistibly funky single. With a guest “vocal” from Byron “Mr. Talkbox” Chambers, a ridiculously catchy bassline, and a brass section that won’t quit, Feel It is proof that Mr. McKeehan continues to rule the Christian radio roost even as he enters his 50s.

Despite Feel It‘s lighter-than-air message–rave reviews for the song and the video overpower the occasional “Where’s Jesus in this song message?”–Feel It will definitely make Billboard’s Christian Songs Top 10, and a No.1 finish isn’t out of the question. It’s absolutely brilliant.

FEEL IT
tobyMac featuring Mr Talkbox

When I sit back and imagine
Life without You, I can’t fathom
How I ever thought I’d make it on my own
And there’s at least a million reasons
I’m still standing here believin’
You’re my comfort, You’re my healin’
This I know (this I know)

Well, you can’t see the wind, but it moves the leaves
From the bottom to the top of the tallest trees
You are everything I will ever need
And they can’t take that from me

Oh, I feel it in my heart
I feel it in my soul
That’s how I know
You take our brokenness and make us beautiful
Yeah, that’s how I know

Everybody talkin’ like they need some proof
But what more do I need than to feel You

Love came crashin’ in
Never gonna be the same again
Yeah, You came crashing in
You wrecked me, You wrecked me
