Get This Party Started by Toby Mac tobyMac - Momentum - Get This Party Started

Toby Mac exploded out of DC Talk with this opening song of his debut solo effort Momentum. A huge, loud, dance track declaring a joyous love of God,  it contains one of my favorite lines- “open up your mind and let your soul be free”.  Momentum was the best post- DC Talk effort from any member of the band.  Toby Mac displayed his heavy hip hip roots on Momentum, a CD that contains several classics like “Love Is In The House”, “Somebody’s Watching Me” and “J Train”. However for a completely exuberant, sold-out, stomping declaration of joy in faith, you can’t beat “Get This Party Started”.

Get This Party Started
by Toby Mac

Everybody everybody in the place to be
Open up your mind and let your soul be free
I can feel the Most High shining on me, so…
Let’s get this party started
Everybody everybody in the place to be
Open up your mind and let your soul be free
I can feel the Most High smiling on me, so…
Let’s get this party started
Blind-sided by the blitz
Come on baby it’s on
I couldn’t wait to get on this
You ain’t no quiet storm
I’m gonna tell it like it is
There ain’t no stopping us now
Somebody shut me up so I can live out loud
Them people thought I was gone
It’s been a long time comin’
But straight out the box
We got the dark side runnin’
So Father, Most High won’t You show Yourself
And shine on this record like nobody else

Can you really, be honest, hear this song without dancing? Does your joy in Christ feel like this?

Speak Your Mind
