The captivating performance was electrifying, with news of the hot new single spreading like wildfire moments after the performance aired. “Pressure” which hit iTunes last week, and Android platforms Monday, shot to the top of the charts as the NO.2 song on iTunes Christian/Gospel Charts, just one day after his performance.
In addition to “Pressure,” McReynolds has also released his lead single, “Gotta Have You,” an up-tempo track, produced by Grammy Award Winner, Warryn Campbell and co-written by Grammy Award Winner, PJ Morton. The song is currently on radio, iTunes, and Android platforms, with a full-length music video coming soon.
