Media have praised Jobe and Majestic saying it’s “not just an album; it’s an experience” (CCM Magazine), “practically royal” (Music Times), and that it is “Jobe’s best release” (Worship Leader). This week Jobe interacted with her fans with a RELEVANT Magazine Q&A. Those that missed it can watch the Q&A here.
Jobe’s new album reveals a collection of simple, congregational-friendly tracks that she hopes will become new anthems for a generation hungry for God to move in a fresh way. For the writing of Majestic, Jobe reached out to like-minded worship leaders who share her passion for writing songs for the Church and who have become personal friends through their common vision. Some of Jobe’s most popular worship anthems, like “Revelation Song” and “Healer,” have been written by others, so to release a collection of songs where she’s personally been an intricate part of creating every track was a dream come true for the worship leader, who’s grateful and eager to collaborate with others.
“When I die, if I was known for one thing, I would want to be known for [helping people] fall more in love with Jesus,” Jobe asserts. “So I don’t care what song I sing, if the heart of it is that people fall more in love with Jesus and they understand the heart of God for them.”
