Nashville, Tenn. (May 11, 2018) - A symbol of the rapper's personal growth, Jackie Hill Perry released her sophomore album May 11, aptly titled Crescendo. The project is centered on Perry’s sense of brokenness entrusted to God’s care amidst a rich tapestry of sounds, beats and words, the constant thread running through the growth-aligning the album.  

The Gospel Coalition shared an in depth conversation with Perry surrounding Crescendo, where they marked the LP as a "a rich collection of hip hop songs exploring a wide range of topics (race, gender, social media, church) through the lens of glorifying God and growing in faith."

Critics are praising Perry's long-awaited return with The Christian Beat calling each track on Crescendo "saturated with honesty and sincerity...whether it's filled with bold fire or transparent reflection." New Release Today raved "I cannot remember the last time that a rapper spit such a strong verse" and CCM Magazine, who gave the album five out of five stars in their review, described Perry as "intent on elevating expectations to another level entirely with her stunning sophomore album, Crescendo... likely to stand as the best hip-hop release of the year."

Prior to the album's unveiling, Perry released a music video for "Lamentations" last week. Found on Perry's latest, Crescendo, the video depicts Perry sitting in a room, paralleling her internal struggle with sin, forgiveness and the 'crescendo' of her own life. 



Crescendo is now available on Amazon, Apple Music, Google Play, and Spotify
