“I luh God, you don’t luh (love) God? What’s wrong witch u (with you)?”

It’s not the lyrics, it’s the beat, ad-libs and tune making Christians question if Mary Mary‘s Erica Campbell‘s new song is really for the glory of God.

In a recent interview with The Tom Joyner Morning Show, the singer said the song was made in the trap/hood style to appeal to people in lower income neighbourhoods.

“Everyone doesn’t speak properly. Everyone doesn’t live in a well-maintained manicured neighborhood. People live in rough neighborhoods and they speak how they speak. No matter where you are, you have to acknowledge that you’re blessed. Everybody don’t like it. Some people are upset about it, but they’ll be all right. God don’t live in a box. Why should I?”

Commenters expressed support, saying gospel music needs to evolve to reach young people.

P.S. Listen to the track Below. Also Watch Erica performing the song and her interview with Tom Joyner below:
