About Mali Music: 

The evolution of Mali Music is quite evident, and it’s remarkable to witness. The charismatic and talented GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter/musician/producer has been blessing the world with his prolific and provoking songs over hypnotic and melodic beats since he officially came on the scene nearly 10 years ago. Now he is a little more seasoned and ready to resonate with listeners even more with his signature contemporary gospel and R&B sound. But Mali is more than his inspirational sound and his phenomenal catalog. Mali Music is a feeling, an experience, and he’s only getting better with time.

September 1, 2023, the artist is slated to release his sixth solo album, God Be Praised (RCA Inspiration), and his most introspective and best work to date. The album, written by the dynamic artist, will feature 12 tracks and continue where his 2020 critically acclaimed project Book of Mali left off. God Be Praised, which Mali recorded in less than two weeks at the Indianapolis studio of friend and drummer George Tyler, features musicians such as Tyler, guitarist Larry Angel, string arranger Roy Cotton, and singer Amber Bullock. Every song on the album, especially the first single, “Yes I Do,” a moving, soul-stirring track that showcases his luminous falsetto and the compelling “My Worship,” illuminate his deep trust in God. In the song “Falling,” Mali testifies about constantly feeling God’s love, while on the sweet love song “Only Way,” he croons, “Guess we got to do what lovers do/Cuz there’s no other way…/And if you leave it all behind it ain’t over/There’s no other way/True love/ I know it’s the only way….” 

In addition to making incredible music on his own, Mali has most recently collaborated with some of the industry's top artists, including Kierra Sheard-Kelly and We Are Messengers, but it was his amazing collaboration with fellow gospel heavyweight Jonathan Reynolds on their 2021 EP Jonny x Mali: Live in LA that wowed audiences and garnered the pair a GRAMMY for Best Gospel Song/Performance for their uplifting hit, “Movin’ On.” Mali is excited about working with even more artists in the future. He is also excited about what is up next for him. He plans to do more directing (he’s been directing visuals for his songs and loving it), appear in more films (he played Jesus in the 2018 film Revival!), and hopes to do more small screen work since serving as the host for the “Black History Honors” (a four-part docuseries that blends history and gospel music) earlier this year. 

Mali Music is a visionary with an undeniable creative spirit with so much to offer the industry and the world. And as he gives back to the world through his incredible artistry, he continues to evolve and grow as an artist and a man, all while praising the Lord. “Mali Music isn't necessarily me personally. It’s the sound, the music, the medicine, it's a feeling. I’m just the man behind it,” he says. “People have told me that my albums have helped them connect with God or got them through some serious things. I'm thankful that I can do that. But I could not do any of this without my relationship with God. He is bigger and wiser than me.”
