Canadian hip-hop and spoken word artist, Jon Corbin aka The Runaway, releases ‘You Care’, featuring Jeremy Rodney-Hall – an affirmation for the broken-hearted.
‘You Care’ is an inspirational hip-hop song for those who are tired of fighting through life’s challenges. With a sound inspired by the soulfulness of Leon Bridges, the lyricism of Sho Baraka, and the worshipful gospel of Israel Houghton, Corbin’s goal behind this song was to encourage people to push through their struggles and remember that God cares for us.
“‘You Care’ is a personal song that affirms God’s love for us, even in the face of hard times. I hope this song inspires people to connect with God despite the problems they are facing.” said Corbin. “In previous songs I had written about wanting to seek God above my circumstances, and I felt I was failing because I was so caught up in my present issues,” he continues.
“In studying the Psalms, I saw so many times where the Psalmist lifted their concerns to God and then moved to worship. Of note was Psalm 13:5-6, ‘But I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for He has been good to me.’ I wanted to make a song that I could sing to myself in the hard times. Hopefully it’s a song other people can sing as well.”
