Mary Mary singer Erica Campbell’s solo career is already taking off with her new hit, “I Luh God,” but that hasn’t stopped her from getting backlash from some because they feel the song sounds too secular.
Regardless, Erica is proud of her new sound and she says those who aren’t on board can just buy someone else’s music if they aren’t feeling it.
She tells Hip Hollywood:
“Of course it’s somebody who’s always a little negative but for the most part it’s really been great.
“I think they’re just loving being able to express how you feel about God just in a fun and energetic and cool way. And I’m embracing the positivity in all those who don’t understand it. They can buy someone else’s music. It’s fine. I won’t be offended at all.
“I hope the trend continues. The main point is there’s a whole bunch of people who don’t listen to a traditional style of Gospel music but they want to. They love God too. They want to be inspired. They want to acknowledge the creator. Why not create music they can turn up to?”
