HeIsTheArtist is back with a new powerful, single, 'Virgin' out March 5th, 2021. It’s the follow-up track to his well received version of 'Landslide' by Fleetwood Mac. The new song from the American, Christian singer-song writer from Central Islip, NY, expands the topic of temptation that was previously the center topic of his single, 'The Snake Charmer' and his EP 'Adam & Eve'.
HeIsTheArtist says, "'Virgin' delves into the experience of a Catholic Nun taking a vow of abstinence and how difficult that is while living in a society where the temptation of sex is everywhere. The lyrics 'It's you I like, it's not me' references the promise that nuns make to rid themselves of all vanity in order to be able to focus fully on God’s work."
'Virgin' was produced by Christian Label Wright Music Group and HeIsTheArtist.
Hailing from Central Islip, NY and formerly signed under his birth name, LeeMann Bassey recorded and released secular r&b and dance music for Bentley Records. Inspired to release Christian music after hearing a sermon by Bishop TD Jakes, HeIsTheArtist cites influences including Prince, Chaka Khan, Sade, Maxwell, and D'Angelo.
