“Cardio” Leads Upcoming Studio LP Set for 2024
Nominated for Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year for 54th Annual GMA Dove Awards
Nashville, TN – Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Steven Malcolm hits the ground running on his fresh track, “Cardio,” available today (9/15) — listen HERE. An official music video in support of the song is slated to premiere next Friday, Sept. 22. The high-energy pre-game pep talk leads Malcolm’s forthcoming studio LP.
Pounding the pavement with every 808, the hip-hop heavyweight offers an aggressive dose of motivation for life’s biggest challenges on “Cardio,” cleverly name-checking a broad spectrum of celebrities, brands and innovators across the track’s spitfire lyrics. “‘Cardio’ is the catchy summertime inspiration single. I wanted to make the anthem I would have listened to in the high school locker room before a big game,” shares Malcolm. “This song is all about owning the greatness that results from the hard work and grind put in the journey. We all have a race to run. To be great and keep keeping-on takes two things: a little inspiration and cardio!”
Poised for release in early 2024, the Michigan native’s next studio set is the highly anticipated follow-up to his familial 16-track collection, Tree, which recently received a 2023 GMA Dove Award nomination in the category of Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year. The nod marks Malcolm’s seventh career Dove Award nomination. Winners for the 54th Annual GMA Dove Awards will be announced publicly Oct. 20, 2023, during an exclusive broadcast on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
