Papa San has released a new music video for the single, "Step Up," featuring Da' T.R.U.T.H. The video is already available on MTV.com, Buzznet, Starpulse, Blastro.com, Pulse TV Network, NewReleaseTuesday.com, Video Hits, Aspire, Video Box, Flows & Beats, Hawk TV, Video Madness, California Music Channel and hundreds of outlets and affiliates nationwide.
The track is the first single from his latest album, ONE BLOOD, which released in January, landing at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Chart, Amazon Reggae Chart and the Billboard Reggae Chart. The album features guest performances from some of Gospel's biggest names, including Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton, LeCrae, Da' T.R.U.T.H., Stitchie, Jael Wiafe and more.
"ONE BLOOD is not just a title on this album but an embodiment of one blood," says Papa San. "The mixture of reggae, dancehall, techno, pop and rap has given this album a diverse feel." The album even has some pure Gospel flavor, with Fred Hammond turning up on "Your Eyes Are On Me," which is being serviced to Gospel Radio.
With a career spanning over twenty years, Papa San has recorded over 15 albums with over 15 hit singles, including two #1 singles on Billboard's Dance Chart. Now a born again Christian, Papa San delivers his sixth Gospel album - making history by topping the Billboard Reggae chart, iTunes and Amazon at #1. The Jamaican Gospel Reggae and Dancehall singer, songwriter and producer is a 13-time Marlin Award winner, GMWA, Tamika and Stellar Award winner, as well as Dove Award and Soul Train Music Award nominee. As one of the most recognized Gospel Reggae artists in the world today, he has collaborated with the likes of Kirk Franklin, Toby Mac, Nicole C. Mullen, Percy Bady and many more.
Papa San has been hailed as a trendsetter, mastermind and genius. But he's more interested in being considered a man of God. ''I'm a fisher of men and music is my bait," he says. "One Blood is for all People. One Love has no boundaries. One God who we know and believe in."
Papa San will be touring throughout 2014 promoting ONE BLOOD, with special appearances by his daughter, Tasan, who provides vocals on the track "Running." In addition to his music career, Papa San is an ordained minister, who along with his wife Debbie, launched Our Father's Kingdom Ministries International in 2011.
