Nashville, TN (May 22, 2020)
Gotee artist Aaron Cole plans to continue his streak of critical acclaim with his newest release: “Only U Forever.” This dual single includes his first radio single, “Only U” since being named the Dove Awards’ coveted New Artist of the Year. Prior to that, Cole garnered back-to-back #1 singles on the Billboard Christian HOT AC/CHR Chart and has had multiple sync uses including promos for ESPN and Fox Sports. His songs have also been featured in the Netflix original series, “On My Block” among other prominent sync placements.
“These songs just represent where my heart is at in this season,” Cole said. “I am grateful for God—knowing who He is and allowing Him to do the things that only He can do in my life.”
“Only U” features fellow Gotee artist, Terrian, who has also had acclaimed radio success and is a member of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band. “Only U” will be impacting radio on May 22 with an edit that was crafted in part by Toby McKeehan himself. Continuing their partnership, both songs on the dual single—“Only U” and “Forever Grateful” were by produced by Cole Walowac, former Capital Kings artist and producer of NF’s latest album, The Search.
Named “One of 5 Top Gospel Artists to Watch” by Essence Magazine, Cole’s music journey started when he began rapping at the age of three. After dropping six independent projects, the Bristol, VA, native was introduced to multi-GRAMMY-award-winning producer and artist McKeehan, who has been working with him ever since.
“Aaron Cole is where it’s going, He’s a natural,” McKeehan said. “He wakes up and breathes songs that are culturally relevant, but ever aware of the spiritual. He just gets it. He has a deep love for God and a love for people that organically works its way into the lyric. The Lord has blessed him with a deep well of talent, yet he grinds like he’s ungifted. That’s a rare combination that I will lock arms with anytime, anywhere.”
Since his Gotee debut album, Not By Chance, which dropped last August, Cole has accumulated more than 70.24 million streams at Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, and Amazon and more than 18.1 million views on YouTube.
