On her new track, “Thankful,” which features Africa’s top-tier talent, Davido, Queen Kel expresses her thanks in spades.
As Queen Kel takes stock of the benefits that have surrounded her life in recent years, she sings the song “Thankful,” which is an acknowledgment of and complete obedience to the sovereign might of God. This new release follows on the heels of “Mountains,” a serious worship song that emphasizes the dependable nature of the Divine.
In spite of the fact that the song is a departure from Davido’s usual Afropop territory, the singer gets into character to deliver a piercing first verse and hook that is embellished with praise poetry in his own language. Queen Kel follows off where he left off, her heartfelt gratitude for the ever-present hand of God in her life. Before Queen Kel brings the song to a triumphant conclusion with spirit-filled tongues, the two vocalists share a brief duet on the stage. “Thankful,” a song written and produced by the amazing NapJ, is the perfect way to start the day for any Christian believer. The delicate chords infuse the music with a reviving spirit, while the overall subject urges approaching God with an attitude of thanksgiving.
Queen Kel is a jack-of-all-trades who has demonstrated her ability to master a variety of trades. In addition to her varied roles as a nurse, preacher, entrepreneur, model, philanthropist, and preacher, she is extremely committed to her music ministry. She has received numerous awards for her work. Her decision to cooperate with Davido is in keeping with her desire to debunk the myth that Christianity is uncool and to assist gospel music in establishing a long-lasting presence in popular culture.
