June 21st, 2024-- Ciara, the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, and global icon has teamed up with Christian hip-hop breakthrough artist, Hulvey for a powerful remix of his hit single "Altar," set to release on June 21, 2024. This collaboration marks a significant moment in both artists' careers, blending Ciara's dynamic presence in the music industry with Hulvey's rising influence in Christian music.

Listen to Hulvey’s “Altar (Remix)” ft. Ciara now.

The original "Altar" single was immediately praised by listeners across social media who quickly turned the song into a dynamic and relevant worship anthem for this generation. The song organically garnered over 500,000 creates on social media, and climbed up the Hot Christian Songs chart, garnering over 60M streams. Altar became Hulvey’s biggest release in 2023, leading him to become Billboards’ #2 Top New Christian Artist. The song’s widespread success reached Ciara, whose decision to use the song in her family’s Easter post this year sparked a genuine connection with Hulvey, leading to their collaboration on this remix.

Known for her chart-topping hits and electrifying performances, Ciara brings her distinct vocal style and musical expertise to "Altar," enhancing its message of faith and personal transformation. With a social media following that extends her influence beyond music, Ciara's involvement underscores the song's reach and impact on a global scale.

Expressing her excitement about joining forces with Hulvey, Ciara shared, "When I first heard 'Altar,' I was moved by its powerful message and knew I wanted to share it with my followers. Collaborating with Hulvey on this remix has been a meaningful experience, and I believe our partnership will inspire listeners and uplift hearts."

Hulvey added, "Working with Ciara on this has been incredible. She’s been so humble throughout the process and I’m beyond grateful to share this moment with her. My hope is that it reaches people who are searching for purpose and hope. ”

Fans can anticipate more from Hulvey in 2024, as he gears up to release his highly anticipated new album. Teasing the upcoming release, Hulvey remarked, "I've been hard at work on my next album and the fans have been sticking with me through the process. I’ve recorded my last vocal, and it will be coming sooner than you think."

The remix of "Altar" featuring Ciara will be available on all major music streaming platforms starting June 21, 2024. This release not only celebrates the synergy between two acclaimed artists but also underscores their shared dedication to creating music that resonates spiritually and emotionally.

About Hulvey:

Hulvey’s music has quickly developed into his sonic calling-card. But to fully appreciate the music is to know the artist. His child-like wonder and reverence for his maker motivates his desire to reflect the beauty of Christ through tastefully refined music.

Hulvey was signed to Reach Records in 2019 after the success of his breakout single “Motions” released on Reach’s Summer ‘19 playlist as one of the top streamed singles on the project. In 2020, he was named Pandora’s Christian Artist to watch. In 2021 his debut album, Christopher, achieved the No. #8 spot on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart and also debuted at #19 on the Rap albums chart. Reflecting on the quickly growing success of his career as a Christian artist, Hulvey says, “my salvation comes from my personal relationship with God. I want to glorify God with my music, and to be honest and straightforward about how it is benefitting me personally.” 

After a slew of compelling singles, five EP’s and one album in the span of four years, It’s no doubt that in 2023, Hulvey is already having an artist-defining, breakthrough year. Only three singles into the year, and Hulvey currently holds two spots on Billboards’ Hot Christian Songs, with No Longer Bound peaking at #19, with 16 total weeks on the chart, and Altar peaking at #25, with 7 total weeks on the chart. His other 2023 single release, WALK featuring GRAMMY Award winning artist Lecrae also spent five weeks on the Hot Christian Songs chart peaking at #5. With 2023’s early success on No Longer Bound, WALK and Altar, it seems the best is yet to come for Hulvey.

About Ciara:

Ciara is a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Over her twenty-year career, she has sold over 23 million records and nearly 30 million singles worldwide, including chart-topping hits “Goodies,” “Ride,” “Oh,” “1, 2 Step,” “I Bet,” “Level Up,” and “How We Roll.” Ciara is not only known for her vocal talent and dance moves, but she has starred in both film and television roles. Most recently she scored an NAACP Image award for her role as Nettie in 2023 adaptation film of The Color Purple. Ciara is the founder and CEO of Beauty Marks Entertainment (BME), a company at the vanguard of the fast-changing music industry. To that end, the company positions music at the intersection of Ciara’s other passions: film, fashion, philanthropy, and technology. Along with husband Russell Wilson, she launched The House of LR&C, a new concept in retail with a focus on doing good. In keeping with her entrepreneurial spirit, Ciara is the co-owner of Ten To One rum and recently launched her skincare line OAM (On A Mission) which provides clinical level results through vitamin C. As part of her ongoing philanthropy work, she co-founded the Why Not You Foundation with husband Russell Wilson which is dedicated to fighting poverty through education and empowering today’s youth to lead with a “why not you” attitude. Most recently they became New York Times Bestselling authors with the release of their first children’s book “Why Not You” (Random House) which was inspired by the work they do through their foundation.

About Reach Records:

Reach Records is an Atlanta based independent hip-hop label founded in 2004 by Lecrae and Ben Washer. Long before acclaim, awards, plaques, chart positioning, and radio play, the two started the label because they both love hip-hop and Jesus. Reach Records was launched with no strategy, no funds, no big players, but they made big moves! Today Reach Records is a trailblazing label with a roster of nearly 10 artists and a staff of 20 who are unashamed about sharing their faith and passionate about hip-hop. Reach Records is committed to building a movement that combines faith with music and popular culture.
