The song has both the gospel and secular music industry buzzing and the song, which features the vocals of Pastor Marvin Sapp, has actually surprised those who have heard the final product.
Burruss, who also plays host to “Kandi Koated Nights,” a popular late night web series covering all things sex, and creator of “Bedroom Kandi,” (her line of pleasure products and sex toys), shocked the public with news she teamed up with Sapp for the release of the gospel single.
While she’s fully aware of the controversial nature of it all, Kandi shared a few of the lyricis as well as her thoughts about the criticism she’s received about her choice to venture into ‘church music’.
“Lyrics by a sinner/believer (me)” – Kandi via Instagram
Burruss shared the following via her personal Instagram page, stating:
“I knew when I decided to do it that I would be criticized. That’s to be expected.”
The single mom, who is engaged to her live-in fiancé, Todd Tucker, is moving forward with plans to unveil her newest musical venture and from what I’ve heard… “Stay Prayed Up” will surprise many a “Christian” music connoisseur.
“I am honest about who I am,” Kandi continued, before revealing her Christian background and lineage.
“My great grand father & my grandfather were Bishops in The Church of God Holiness. I believe in God but I have always struggled with the rules of the church, just like a lot of people.”
Though she admittedly leads a contrary life in terms of the principles outlined in the word of God for sexual purity and holiness, Burruss is using her new gospel song as “a testimony for me. Hopefully people with a similar struggle can relate.”
What do you think about Kandi’s decision to venture into gospel?
In my opinion the message is still the same.. doesn’t matter who delivers it.
