I’ve spent the last few hours pondering on what to write. This evening, I received a nice little shock in my inbox. It was after our weekly home fellowships that I opened my inbox to find Andrew Bello’s next tune!! Now if any of you follow this artist you will know that this is almost unexpected especially after what has happened to our brother this month alone. Before I give you a review of the song, let me tell you a little about what this guy has faced in the last couple months.

The last couple of months of 2013 were bitter sweeter for Bello. At a point his video for ‘I no fit shout at all’ was removed by YouTube. His team quickly worked on getting it back online and by the grace of God it is now back! During this time he also released a new track, call on His name, which is still on replay for me! May I just we are still waiting for the video Andrew!! Anyway, he has since released another track.

Not long after all this successes, Bello became a victim of the London knife crime. He was robbed at knife point but by the grace of God, his life was spared and what amazed me about Bello was how he handled this situation. The scripture comes to mind, overcome evil by doing good, Rom 12:21. This is exactly what Bello did. He chose not bad mouth these youths but encouraged us all to pray for them. He has also joined the ‘say no to knife crime’

You probably thinking why all this info? Well, I believe that collectively all these events have led Bello to write this song. Unfortunately, I cannot and will not share the song, y’all will just have to wait for the official release. I’m promised it’s going to be shock for us all, even I don’t how he plans to release this track but he seems excited and has promised me that I’d be the first to let y’all know!!

The song is titled ‘no more tears’ and in my humble opinion I can say that this song is deep!
I felt the pain in this guy’s heart as he wrote. Felt like I was there when he wrote the song,lol. Seriously though, after all this guy gone through I can see how he felt writing this song.

There comes a time in life, when you’ve reached what I call the tearless barrier. There is literally no tears left to cry. When you’ve witnessed so much pain, gone through so much heartache that no matter what comes next it cannot break. I speak from experience. When I heard this song honestly, it’s as if my heart needed to hear it. It’s not wrong to feel like this, so long as you have given it all to God. God wants us to have joy in abundance and I think that excludes tears.

The song is very different from his usual but it’s deep. It’s soul lifting and thought provoking. It’s not what we use to but Bello and and his Producers @Captain19UK @Gabz_Amadi ) have done well. The song still has the same style of thought provoking verses with a short and catchy chorus, which I personally love. I’ll give you a couple lines from the track which is literally the chorus, by God’s grace when the track is released I can give you the full lyrics.

There’s no more tears in my system
No more tears in my system

Be on a look out for this track… Guaranteed to get you thinking and thanking God for where you are. Let’s work together with God and the Holy Spirit to put an end to unnecessary pain!

By the grace of God I got to hear CALL ON HIS NAME before it’s official release date TODAY 25th November. When I first got this song, I was immediately drawn to remembrance. I remembered where God brought me from and how I hot to where I am. It was by calling on the name of God. I was encouraged by this song; encouraged to remember God in my good and bad. I spoke to Andrew and he mentioned that at the time of writing this song, he was facing some challenges in the industry. Especially in relation to his prior single I no fit shout. Can’t go into much detail, but Andrew did say that this  is a testimony to what God is doing in His life.
Have a read at the lyrics… The song will be available for download on soundcloud as of TOADY!!!

See I go call on you
My feet dey follow you
I cannot do this on my own
No be lie I won’t prosper at all

I’m stranded without you lord
Come and rescue me
I’ll fail in life without you
Can you hear me

Eh yo eh yo!
Your love is never failing
You took me from the miry clay
Now I’m not the same

Eh yo! Eh yo!
Your love is never changing
When I was down you came for me
I’ll keep calli

Call His name
Call on His name
When you call on His name it gives us joy assurance and happiness.

Verse 2
I’ll get my breakthrough one day
No man can see how I feel inside
Baba go find my way
I listen to the words that you say

​No fronting, no stunting
I’ll place everything at your feet
No fronting, no stunting
I cannot deceive myself

Eh yo! Eh yo!
You see my heart needs you
Take me away from the pain
Let your mercy see me through
Eh yo! Eh yo!
Right now I’m standing
I surrender in worship
Let your peace fall on me

Call His name
Call on His name
When you call on His name it gives us joy assurance and happiness.

Verse 3

I read Jeremiah 33 coz in the place of weakness the enemy can hurt me
when I lose focus my heart turns cold
I cling to the cross now my heart’s controlled

(Yeah, yeah) I’m stuck so imma call on his name
it’s playtime now but this is more than a game
I’ve gotta get my life right so I play calm
running out of patience ring the alarm

He brings peace and joy so ive gotta stay close
I’m holding his hand while I stand when the rain blows
my self confidence is low…
I welcome the Holy Spirit now coz it’s time that my mind grows

So I call on him it’s Christ that I lean on
I read the word of God it’s that which I feed on
I can see the changes coming now it’s in place
I can see myself growing now it’s in grace/
