Gospel force Erica Campbell told our friends over at Rapzilla that her 2015 gospel trap anthem “I Luh God” was inspired by O.T. Genasis’s viral hit “CoCo”, which celebrates cocaine.
The music video for “CoCo” has amassed over 150 million views since it dropped in Oct. 2014, and its message disgusted Campbell.
“I was listening to the radio. Some song called ‘I’m In Love With The CoCo’ came on, and I got upset ’cause I’m like, this is what kids are singing and saying over and over,” Campbell said. “Why can’t [Christians] change that? We got some crazy writers, incredible artists that love Jesus. Let’s infiltrate! Let’s get in there and change it.
“I know sometimes I want to turn up and have a good time, but I don’t want to listen to [music like ‘CoCo’], so I figured I’m a songwriter, I’ll write my own song.”
