Immortal King aka God’s Beloveth, The man of phronesis drops a Fresh new song on his birthday as a gift to his Family, Friends and Fans. He sang/rap about the God-shaped-vacuum in the heart of every man (unbelievers) that CANNOT be filled by anything in the world but the king Jesus Christ ONLY; that’s why he titled the song, ONLY.
#Only(Acts4:12) is a song that expresses God’s love and salvation
(eternal life, righteousness, joy, peace, fulfillment, divine health,
long life, prosperity etc) that can ONLY be found in Jesus Christ;
which He has given FREELY to everyone that believes in Him.
#Only(Acts4:12) is a hip hop song with a cool rap delivery fused with
lovely pidgin English hook (chorus) with an amazing R and B beat that compliments the lyrics to communicate the person of Jesus in a way that makes you feel the warmth of His love.
The song which was released in 2001, still feels fresh in the hearts of people who listens to it. It was written and composed by Bart Millard, and inspired by the death of Millard’s father as he considers what it would be like in Heaven and to be standing before God.
In writing the music for the song, however, the band faced more difficulty; Millard noted that “at first it was a fast song… it was all these random ideas”. Keyboardist Jim Bryson noted that “we were literally tearing down the stuff… [Millard] and I were talking about arranging it differently and doing a slower version, so we just tried out a piano intro… it was literally the first thing I played. It wasn’t anything to do with me, I think it was just a God thing. [Millard] said ‘here it is, this is what’s going to happen’, and we laid the song down in about five minutes.” At that time, the other MercyMe members were Robby Shaffer on drums and percussion, Nathan Cochran on bass guitar and Michael Scheuchzer on guitar. This line-up recorded the first version of the song for The Worship Project. In 2006, it was included in the ‘Platinum Edition’ of Almost There.
