Tasha Cobbs, Heart Passion Pursuit which was released on August 25th, is the #1 Gospel Album, #1 Christian/Gospel Album and #8 overall for top current albums.
Tasha Cobbs received some backlash last month when it was revealed that rapper Nicki Minaj was featured on the single ‘I’m Getting Ready‘ off the album, but Cobbs Leonard handled the backlash well, telling Essence:
“I’ve seen the Nicki that is off the stage and that Nicki has a great relationship with God. My assignment with this song was for a particular audience,” Leonard said. “Some [of the listeners] have never experienced God ever and she exposed that audience in her way, to the God that she loves.”
Leonard added that because of the testimonies that she’s heard, she would do it again.
“The testimonies that have come because of this – I would absolutely do it again. I’ve had thousands of people say to me, ‘This is the first time I’ve ever bought a gospel album. This is the first time I’ve ever felt God. I didn’t believe in God until I heard this song.’”
Congratulations Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Kenneth Leonard, ‘Heart Passion Pursuit’ is a masterpiece!
