Kirk Franklin recently stopped by SFPL TV, Pre-album release day, to talk about his new project, religion, social media, Drake, Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and more. Getting mounds of flack from the album title, Kirk continues to beat the odds and the naysayers, as his album hit the top of the charts landing No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Gospel Chart and Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Albums Chart. The album also entered No. 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart. The new project marks Franklin’s eleventh consecutive No.1 debut.

FLY NEWS: KIRK FRANKLIN LANDS TOP SPOT ON BILLBOARD WITH NEW ALBUM ‘LOSING MY RELIGION’

About the title Losing My Religion, Kirk says:

With the new album, when I say ‘Losing My Religion’, i’m saying: that just like Marriage cannot guarantee Intimacy, Rules does not guarantee Relationship. And that Rules without Relationship leads to Rebellion. And I believe that’s why so many people leave church, or leave christianity or just any type of system of belief; because you keep stacking the rules on them. I believe that it’s a time to stop trying and start trusting.

Kirk also mentioned to that he’s currently listening to the likes of: Taylor Swift [he mentions jokingly as his guilty pleasure and says: Yo, Taylor! Don’t sleep on her! She’s dope!], Drake, Kendrick Lamar, U2, Mumford & Sons and more.

Kirk candidly talks about Kendrick Lamar:

I just rock with what feels good. I mess with what I feel is genuine and just very honest music, because that’s what I wanna be; a very genuine and honest artist. Everyone I listen to is not the purpose of me wanting to work with them, it’s just I try to make sure i’m expounding and expanding what it is that is culturally relevant, and I love great artistry; and I think he’s a great artist. Of course, i’m not able to cosign all of the lyrical content but that’s not my job to.
