New Music: Game f/ Jamie Foxx – ‘Hallelujah’

Game

Game tries to balance religion with his unorthodox lifestyle on “Hallelujah,” one of the songs that will appear on his fifth album Jesus Piece. The West Coast MC praises the Lord and hollers at bad bitches while a gospel choir and Jamie Foxx sing out over the soulful beat.

“Bad bitches in here, forgive me for my sins/ I ain’t mean to walk inside a church cursing again/ I want to live righteous and you know I love Jesus, but you can’t catch the holy ghost in the Prius,” raps a conflicted Jayceon.

You can now listen to snippets and pre-order the album on iTunes prior to its December 11 drop date.
