Corey Paul Leaves Collision Records, Releasing New Single

Corey Paul is now an independent artist. The Houston artist announced in a recent blog post titled “I Quit My Job, Left The Label & Trusted God” that he has made the decision to leave his job as a firefighter and is no longer signed to Collision Records.  In addition to that, he announced that he will release a new single titled Pipe Dreams on July 21st. “Coming from where I’m from, anything other than a “regular job” is called a Pipe Dream, which basically means it’s unobtainable. As a believer, I know we have to fight for our dreams and have faith. “Pipe Dreams” paints a picture of the mindset of a 15-year-old Corey and all my lil cousins and homies still struggling to turn their Pipe Dreams into reality.”

To tha young kings and young queens:
I wanted to catch you up on everything that’s been going on in my life! It’s been a while since the drop of Today, Tomorrow, Forever and I’m ready to unleash something new. I’m fully independent now, which is super exciting. I left Collision Records and am ready to pound the pavement on my own.
I learned a lot and was grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a label that helps push the culture further artistically and still authentically stand for Jesus. Nothing negative to say about Collision, the overall experience was invaluable. But now it’s back to the indie grind. It’s still Frontline! I’m an artist who enjoys the business side of the game, so my focus is on continuing to build our team, making good music and being consistent.

And leaving Collision is not the only change I’ve made. Many people don’t know this, but up until June of this year, I was a firefighter for the Houston Fire Department. I had that heat for real! I found out about firefighting when I was in high school and I always wanted to do something with my life that made a difference I could see. I wanted to serve my community the best way I could and I felt like being a firefighter could do that. It’s one of the most rewarding, exciting and depressing careers there is. You realize how much pain, hurt, death and destruction there is in this world. Every day, someone is sick or a home catches fire or someone gets shot.
I’ve pulled up on scene and it’s literally the worst day of someone’s life. As a Christian, we are supposed to empathize and sympathize with those in pain. When you really do that… it changes you forever. One of my first calls was a little baby who wasn’t breathing. I remember doing CPR on the way to the hospital praying God would save him….
