If you watched the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night, you saw Kandi doing something quite out of the ordinary from her usual, “spice up your sex life with some Bedroom Kandi” salesmanship– very out of the ordinary actually. Instead of talking keggle balls and adult toys, Kandi took us to church, surprising everybody, including her own daddy, with her exclamation that she wanted to make a gospel record.
And that’s exactly what she did, inviting famed gospel singer Marvin Sapp to jump on a track she wrote titled, “Stay Prayed Up.” Though Kandi’s father was ecstatic about the song, the way things left off last night, the single seemed a bit… unfinished. But apparently it’s a done deal now as the song is already topping the charts — of iTunes anyway. Kandi just tweeted:
My song with @MarvinSapp Stay Prayed Up is #1 on #itunesgospel music! Thanks everyone for the love & support!
Sounds like staying prayed up is working for the queen of money making. Now as far as her rectifying her dual revenue streams (sex and gospel), which she clearly is/was conflicted about, well she better stay prayed up on that too. Especially considering that she was just defending her right to put out a gospel track on her Instagram page last week.
“On this episode of #RHOA you see part of the gospel song I was working on. I knew when I decided to do it that I would be criticized. That’s to be expected. I’m a single mom that had a child out of wedlock, I speak openly about sex on #KandiKoatedNights, I have #BedroomKandi, etc… I’m very honest about who I am. 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. The song “Stay Prayed Up” is like a testimony for me. Hopefully people with a similar struggle can relate. I’m posting the lyrics to the hook… The song clearly states that I’m a sinner. Relates 2 people who believe n God but they’re not perfect christians…The song is my testimony of what I’ve been thru & how I deal with things,” she posted.
What do you think of Kandi’s gospel track?
