Soul Deep Records is re-releasing Rawsrvnt’s No Ordinary Love, his 5th studio album, which features the Billboard hit “On Fire” and two new songs.

Since 1999, 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. For the re-release of his updated record, Raw felt it was only fitting to title his latest work No Ordinary Love, expressing his mission to share God’s love.

“I have a passion for seeing people fall in love with Jesus,” Rawsrvnt says.

“Since God has shown us that same passion in falling in love with us, I believe it’s only right to share with Him how much we love and appreciate Him, too.”

No Ordinary Love is available worldwide through all major digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, etc.) and features Rawsrvnt’s take on Sade’s award winning “No Ordinary Love” with Lisa McClendon. A must listen for Sade fans! Fans will appreciate the spin Rawsrvnt took on her classic jam and will develop a deeper understanding of this “extra-ordinary” love that God has for all of us.

Apart from Rawsrvnt’s signature smooth laid back flow on tracks like “Speak” featuring Bobby Tinsley and “Flossin’ Him,” Rawsrvnt stretches out again to another genre on “The Almighty” and shows that his sound can’t be confined or classified to just hip-hop, but convinces Reggae listeners that the genre fits him.

“On Fire” landed on the Billboard Christian Rock charts and has become a favorite on one of the largest Christian Rock radio networks in the country, Effect Radio, reaching #1 on their Top 25. “On Fire” capitalizes on Rawsrvnt’s aggressive, intense, passionate worship for the Lord with screaming guitars and a driving bass line. This hit has been featured on Sports Shows as well as major sporting events stirring up the crowd as Rawsrvnt does best.

Continuing in his lane of creating aggressive, intense, passionate worship music, “Be With You” and “Bow Down” both feature long-time friend and colleague, Sean Slaughter and once again show how effective Hip-Hop Worship can be when delivered from an unashamed platform.

No Ordinary Love, produced by Chuck Hemann, features the well known worship song “Here I Am to Worship” with Dove Award nominee and newly signed Sparrow Records artist Audrey Assad in a way that’s never been heard before.

Responding to numerous fan requests for song lyrics, Rawsrvnt is making them available. When fans purchase Raw’s music from iTunes, they’ll be able to get a digital booklet including that all the song lyrics.

“All of us at Soul Deep Records feel that people long for some worship music that is real, authentic, and passionate,” says Rawsrvnt. He’s certain No Ordinary Love will meet that goal. Add a comment

Bobby "Tre9" Herring of DaSouth.com wants to lead a revolution to change the FCC regulations of what is allowed on radio stations. He feels that the content too violent, graphic and worst of all too sexual. Adults have the choice to change the station if they don't like what they hear, but kids are heavily influenced by pop culture and some guidelines need to be set on what comes on the air.
