R&B singer Montell Jordan will be releasing his second single on his first Christian album Shake Heaven with Dove Award-winning artist Chris August.
"You Are," will be added to radio stations May 31 with the track debuting on the morning show with Keving & Taylor last Friday on the popular Christian station, Atlanta's The Fish.
A few stations early-birded the song with KADI/Springfield, Mo. and WWWA/Freeport, Mass. beginning to showcase the song.
Jordan co-wrote "You Are" with his teenage daughter Sydney, who is also a performer on Victory World Music like her dad. He said the track is his favorite one off of the new project, according to Bozeman Media.
On June 11, the single will be made available on all digital outlets with the video debuting earlier today.
"Personally, I feel 'You Are' is one of the top three songs I have written in my career," said Jordan in a statement. "I wrote a pop love song to my wife nearly 10 years ago and with a rewrite it has become a timeless new love song to God, expressing how a redirected life can become a resurrected one. And working with Chris on the song and video, it reconciles cultures and brings a fresh new collaboration to Christian radio, while at the same time it rekindles the love between man and God as well."
The video was directed Matthew Singleton and was filmed in Nashville, Tenn. at Marathon Village.
The Shake Heaven project includes a live performance DVD of all the songs on the album as well.
It climbed to the top of the Billboard charts at No. 3 on the gospel charts.
You can purchase the album on iTunes.
