Christian Rapper G.L.O Drops New Single “Ignited”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 1, 2021) – Following four No. 1 singles in a row, G.L.O, which stands for God’s Love Only, drops a new single to Christian radio today. “Ignited,” written by the artist and produced by Alex “Ace 1” Espinoza, goes for adds to Christian Hip Hop, Christian Rhythmic and Christian Hot AC/CHR-formatted radio outlets.

The new single is based on Matthew 5:15: “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.”

“I know,” says G.L.O, “that, as a Christ follower, many will try to extinguish the flame of Christ within, but as Children of God we must continue to persevere and shine and remain ‘Ignited’ in this dark world.

Prior to the release of “Ignited,” G.L.O saw four singles hit the No. 1 spot at the CRC Weekly chart.

“Ephphatha” debuted at No. 1 on CRC Weekly, ranked No. 5 at CRC Monthly and No. 9 at CRC Quarterly.

“Closer” was a No. 1 single at CRC Weekly and CRC Monthly, as well as hitting No. 2 at CRC Quarterly. The single ranked No. 10 on the CRC Yearly chart.

“No Weapon Formed” also topped the charts, ranking No. 1 at CRC Weekly, No. 2 at CRC Monthly and No. 6 at CRC Quarterly.

“Reborn,” released in 2019 as the debut single from G.L.O’s album of the same name, hit No. 1 at CRC Weekly, No. 2 at CRC Monthly and No. 7 at CRC Quarterly.

Music has been important to G.L.O since she was young. When she received Jesus Christ as her Savior in 1998, she asked God to reveal her purpose. As she began writing songs, the songwriter noticed that none of her songs glorified God.

“That all changed one fateful day,” G.L.O says, “when God had a Word for me in Bible Study: ‘You can’t have one foot in the world and one foot out.’ After receiving that message, it was the breakthrough I needed. I haven’t looked back.”

With a ministry that knows no boundaries and one that reaches the young and the old, G.L.O’s prayer is that her music can break down the misconception that rap is only of the world.

G.L.O has appeared on local TBN networks as well as UK London International TBN. She has performed onstage at the Gospel Superfest where she shared the platform with artists such as Deitrick Haddon, Lecrae, Dorinda Clark-Cole, and others. She has enjoyed radio airplay from U.S. and international radio outlets.

In June 2019, G.L.O signed with McLaughlin Music Group for management.
