[AUDIO] New Music: Ivan – “Everyday (I Pray)” [W/ Download Links]

You’ve heard me talking/tweeting about this song for months now. The song was recorded back on April 1st and had to be kept under the wraps while the Addicted to Success mixtape came together. With the tape creeping towards completion, it’s time for the first single to be released. The song produced by Antoine Hart (of The Chamber Music Group) takes you through three phases of Ivan‘s music career; where he’s been (part of two groups: ISA & CnI), where he is (his rebirth as a solo artist), and where he’s headed (platinum albums and Grammy speeches).
