Too sexy for a gospel album cover?

Religious groups have been criticizing Mary Mary's Erica Campbell's new album cover, saying her dress is too tight and she's showing off too much curves on a gospel album cover. They think she should have toned it down a little. Erica is going solo after leaving Mary Mary.

What do you think of her album look, appropriate or a bit too much?

As a gospel singer, you should do things that will glorify God. But that dress ain't doing so.

Alot of people are blind to what is happening in this world. What she did is deliberate.Cant u see it? Illuminati tinz! Forget the so-called gospel music. They r set to continually weaken people spiritually(carnal longings) so that when their MASTER comes people are already prepared to receive what he will offer that is- "Do what thou wilt cos u r a god". Run my child!!!

The only thing you're gonna hear men say is "dang she sure got a body on her". I don't think any of them ωïll buy it cos of her music sha....she does have a banging figure on her though but this is definitely too much under the umbrella of "gospel" I don't know if her target audience is the deeper life kinda born agains cos if it is, she sure ain't selling with this outfit...

Akeem Stunna Rotimi said...

Linda to me its ok, just that human hrt re corrupt,permit me to say that. We Christians are scared to dress the way we want to because of what people would say and think. Christianity is not a religion we must know this! But a heavenly lifestyle. We don't ve a dress code like other religion, No wonder the bible tells us not to judge people by their appearance, but that doesn't mean we shudnt dress to represent christianity well. Anyways, I love her outfit but kinda too tight though.

asimia fubara said...

Erica pls take several seats. You look more like Nicki minaj than a woman trying to preach the word.

I dont see what the issue is - she is covered. I see no flesh showing. She is decent - you cannot see any vpl or vbl (visible bra lines) she is a woman, wife and a mother. Nothing un-christian about looking good for yourself, your husband and your children !

Anonymous said...

The industry doesn't prioritize the careers of female artists who just sing. Beyonce's a married mother established artist. She's rolling around half naked in the sand to move units. Janelle Monae is trying it fully clothed, no overt sexuality. She's lesser known, less promoted and didn't break records. Tells you something.

She look lovely, the dress is actually a bit too tight for a gospel album cover but would have been perfect for an evening event or show. The dress doesn't reveal her naked body so I personally will not criticize her but I understand people's opinion because its a album cover not random pics or event picture. *ThatFunctionGuy*
