The track, produced by Danny Brownie, is now available for pre-order.

Speaking at the music video shoot for Glory to God at Hope United Church on Old Hope Road this week, Marshall said Bounty Killer made the initial contact.


"Killer heard Glory to God and said it's a powerful song and we need fi come together and give some praise," Marshall told Jamaica Observer's weekly Splash. "Nuff people woulda say 'Killer?', but is a man weh God-fearing and love God and spiritual too. As early as I knew Killer he was singing songs giving praise, so mi know him spirit and mi know him household. His mother was a devout Christian and a very religious person and I'm sure if she was alive this would be one of her favourite Killer songs."

The two have a longstanding friendship and Marshall also formed part of Bounty Killer's Alliance crew in the early 2000s. Their previous collaborations include Smoke Clears, Sufferer, Be on the Alert and Go Hard.

For others now curious about Marshall's musical direction, he noted that God is not inaccessible and he is allowing himself to be used by Him.

"There are people who tell me to do more gospel music now based on the success and feel of Glory to God," he said. "It's not really pressure because I am good at giving praises to God. I know that God gave us the music as an expression of our emotions, so it's always good when we can use the music to honour Him. I could do a hundred albums just giving thanks to God for the many blessings, so I don't feel pressure about doing gospel music."
