The heartfelt song speaks about the social injustices happening around the world today and calling upon God to bring strength in time of hardships.
Penned by Franklin, his message on “My World Needs You” supports his continued endeavors in addressing and reflecting on issues that anyone faces, and uniting together to help each other. He continues to give back with charitable organizations close by and abroad addressing these issues.
Musically, Franklin’s chart-topping eleventh album LOSING MY RELIGION and singles including “123 Victory” and “Wanna Be Happy?” have been thriving. Billboard’s 2016 Year-End Charts recognized him with seven #1 positions and over ten other Top 25 positions on various Gospel and R&B/Hip-Hop artist, album, and song lists. Franklin is also nominated for four GRAMMY® Awards this year including Best Gospel Album for LOSING MY RELIGION, Best Gospel Performance/Song as a songwriter for Tamela Mann’s “God Provides”, Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song for Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam”, which he is featured on.
