Early Album Reviews Touting Own It As "Exceptional" And "Engaging"
Own It, the latest release from multi-award winning Curb | Word Entertainment artist Francesca Battistelli, is available now. With critics already touting the album as "exceptional" and "engaging," Battistelli's long-awaited fourth studio album has been in the making for two and a half years. Own It is the follow-up to her GRAMMY®-nominated album, If We're Honest, which features the GRAMMY-winning song, "Holy Spirit."
Comments have been pouring in regarding her new songs, especially the album's first single "The Breakup Song." Here are just a few highlights from the media and fans:
"Francesca’s vocals will soothe your soul, and the vertical lyrics will direct your attention and focus to Jesus... If you like female singers that make you think while you enjoy their catchy and empowering songs, Own It is for you. This is a solid upbeat pop album with positive biblical messages that is a great alternative to mainstream pop artists...[and] is easily my top pop album of the year and Francesca’s 'very best' overall album." - NewReleaseToday.com
To celebrate the album's launch, Battistelli joined her label, family and friends at a special VIP event held earlier this week in Nashville. Sharing stories about the making of the album, she also gave the attendees an early listen to a few of the new songs. A special surprise during the event was when Ryan Dokke, SVP/General Manager of Curb | Word Entertainment presented her with a Gold plaque for the RIAA® certification of her top-charting single, "He Knows My Name."
CCMMagazine.com was also on hand to exclusively chat with Battistelli on the making of her album. Be sure to watch the interview here.
Francesca Battistelli, who was named Artist on the Rise from YouTube Music, co-wrote nine of the ten songs found on Own It with such songwriters as Matt Maher, Bart Millard of MercyMe, David Garcia, Mia Fieldes, Jeff Pardo, Molly Reed, Ellie Holcomb, Seth Mosley and Josh Bronleewe. The video to the album's first single, "The Breakup Song," exclusively debuted on Apple Music. Her latest music video, for the song "This Could Change Everything," just released and can be viewed below.
Battistelli has been sharing many of her new songs and many of her previous hits and fan favorites headlining her very own "The Breakup Tour" throughout this fall. Wrapping up this weekend in Lexington, South Carolina, big news about her upcoming tour plans will be announced in the coming weeks.
