Grammy award-winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, whose song, "Break Every Chain," which landed as Billboards' #1 song for a total of 12 weeks, is coming under fire for featuring Nicki Minaj on her new album.
Cobbs and Minaj team up on the song, "I'm Getting Ready," from her latest album "Heart. Passion. Pursuit."
The 36-year-old singer responded to the many fans who disapprove of the move, sharing a meme on her Instagram page.
The image shows people in church with shocked expressions on their face, with the caption, "When saints found out that Tasha Cobbs-Leonard & Nicki Minaj finally did a gospel track together."
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.
