SIR THE BAPTIST HAS RELEASED THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR HIS LATEST GOSPEL MEETS HIP HOP SINGLE ‘SHOWING OFF’ FEATURING KIERRA SHEARD.
Sir The Baptist shared with Essence that he originally pitched the song to the late Aretha Franklin two years before she passed.
“It was a trapped classic. Unfortunately, I never got it cut by the woman who inspired it,” he recalled. “But after chasing down her sound and her peers, I found out what they didn’t tell me was that legends refuse to do records for The System. Legends hate labels. It’s like a slave returning reparations for the cotton assembly line again.”
He still kept it Detroit by getting Kierra Sheard to sing on the song.
Check out the video below, which features animoji’s bouncing along to the beat.
