R&B music with real singing and real lyrics is still alive. Monica, Sade, Maxwell, and Chrisette Michelle have all topped the billboard 200. Even more impressive was Gospel Recording Star Marvin Sapp debut at #2 which made history for the highest charting Gospel album!
Marvin Sapp slips to #9 this week but for a Gospel artist to even be in the Top 10 is amazing! To debut at #2 is something really special. It shows that people are tired of the darkness and gimmicks in music. People want to hear real music, that is about something deeper than material gains.
