The 6-track collection was released on April 30th, 2021. It features the iTunes chart hit singles, “Virgin” and “Childish.”
“A perfect piece of potent pop” – Skope Magazine
“Heistheartist’s vocals shine” – IndieShark
“Heistheartist will certainly continue to experiment within the framework of Christian music, and we can rest assured that it will never veer towards becoming uninspiring” – MobYorkCity
While many artists are content to stay in their lane, playing it safe with each release and offering nothing outside of the box to their fanbase, HeIsTheArtist is the complete paradox. The enigmatic singer-songwriter from New York City has continuously pushed the boundaries between Christian and secular music and their respective sub-genres. HITA has released roots-based music, EDM, r&b, pop and instrumental music, all with one thing in common: success.
What does an artist do to celebrate multiple #1 iTunes chart hits? He pulls the releases from his Spotify account and makes them exclusive to other outlets. With more than 150K Spotify streams of the singles from his latest EP release, “The Book Of Mary” (MTS Records, April 30, 2021), it doesn’t look like the strategy has backfired in the least. The new EP features the hit singles, “Virgin,” “Childish” and “If I Were A Virgin Again,” along with “What Did I Do” and 2 additional “Childish” remixes.
