Ahead of his debut album Joyful, gospel artist dante bowe is taking on the world with new music. After a pause with the Grammy-nominated group Maverick City Music, the worship artist is ready to hit the road again.
In a public statement released Tuesday, Maverick City Music announced they were putting "a pause" on their relationship with singer Dante Bowe. The vagueness of the statement led to plenty of speculation as to what prompted the decision.
Some fans speculated the decision was a result of a September 2022 video on Instagram showing Bowe and friends dancing to Bad Bunny's "Despues de la Playa." Others thought it had something to do with a nude photo that was accidentally posted to Bowe's Instagram story before being quickly deleted. Regardless of what was behind the decision, the church-friendly singer isn't letting his removal from the collective silence him.
On an episode of Tamron Hall's talk show Tuesday, Bowe sat down with the titular host and discussed some of the negative reactions to his split from Maverick City Music. While he acknowledged that second chances and being merciful is a good thing, he also said it's important to not be controversial for the sake of it.
In addition to his own projects, Bowe has written songs for artists like Ciara and Tasha Cobbs. He signed with Bethel Music in 2020 and is set to release a solo project this year featuring artists such as Vic Mensa, Flavour, Ada Ehi, and Jekalyn Carr.
