Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘I would love to have some clean R&B so I can make love to my spouse the right way.’? If you have, David and Tamela Mann have the solution for you. According to The Christian Post, David and Tamela Mann have released a joint album for believers who are trying to get it on but don’t want to be the victim of an auditory assault based on vulgar lyrics.
The new project, Us Against the World is not gospel. Instead, it’s love songs that celebrate the 30-year relationship between the Manns.
Tamela told The Christian Post, “It was different for me, it was really different, even though I was happy to think about the man that I love [while singing]. It made me even look at him differently, and in all honesty, we tested it out and it really worked.”
Just in case you weren’t clear on that, they had sex with their music as the soundtrack. And it was effective. David cosigned the point.
“It’s making baby music.”
The album was produced by Tamela’s 30-year-old son who describes the sound as “back in the day” music. Mann said she’s happy to provide this work for the body of Christ.
“Even though you knew we were talking about love, it wasn’t nasty love music.”
The first single for the 10-song project is “Good Love.” The rest of the album will detail key moments in the couple’s relationship.
David said, “It’s about music to make love, not to have sex. This album was one that we wanted to give to our people because when you’re having those intimate moments, you know we listening to something.” David joked that people are probably listening to R-Kelly or Ron Isley but their music comes from a different place.
“You know what we represent, who we represent. ou know that our love for each other is 30 years strong and growing. So we wanted to make music that people can have those intimate moments with and not listen and be like, ‘Girl, let me slap you, bump you, pop you.’ All that stuff.”
The album is a companion pieces to their memoir Us Against the World: Our Secret to Love, Marriage, and Family.
As you can imagine, the idea was met with some confusion and apprehension on the part of the good people of Twitter.
