As Jenkins explains, “Sonically, you’ll hear R&B, hip-hop and other influences on ‘Winning’ and the rest of the album. But positive air is something everyone needs to inhale. It’s a universal Calgon moment. People always keep trying to put music in a genre box. We’re breaking out of that with this record.”
Jenkins, whose music has been licensed by CNN, NBC, BET and others, will release Think About These Things on Sept. 2 through his Empire-distributed label, Inspired People. In the works: a Winning fall tour and an album release concert on Sept. 9 in Chicago, where Jenkins is pastor of Fellowship Chicago. He is presently traveling across the U.S. on McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour, which wraps on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles.
