Grammy award-winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, whose song, “Break Every Chain,” which landed as Billboards’ number 1 song for a total of 12 weeks, is coming under fire for featuring Nicki Minaj on her new album.
She wrote, “Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with — even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own story to deal with them. Treat them gently.”
Cobbs-Leonard ended the post by citing Romans 14:1 MSG.
Minaj, whose real name is Onika Maraj, is known for her explicit rap lyrics. Several months back, she reportedly revealed to her more than 20 million social media followers, that she would love to work with Cobbs.
Many in the Christian community find it hard to understand Cobbs’ decision to make a song with the racy rapper.
Gospel-secular artist partnerships are not new. Her Album will drop this August 25.
