"The "I Love You" record is special to me because it is a culmination of me totally receiving God's love. I've grown to understand that He loves me as I am, but loves me enough not to let me stay as I am. These songs have taken time to record and write, and I believe it will reignite our desire for love and God's love. Unfortunately, many people are hopeless and don't have high expectations because of past trauma, but I promise you, this love record will reconnect you to God's love. I am excited about my collaborations with PJ Morton and D Smoke. Also, with all of my sisters and my children, Krista, Wozy and Zaya, being a part of this record, it feels like love to me, and I pray that's what people feel when they hear it," shares Erica Campbell.
In anticipation to the "I LOVE YOU" album release, fans have been feasting on other songs released from the album. There is the throwback to testimony service, "Sho' Been Good". "The saints would stand up and say, "When I think of the goodness of Jesus and all He's done for me, my soul cries out 'Hallelujah'. Thank God for saving me." That's not a cliché. That's real talk and I wanted to put it in a song as a reminder of all God has done because He's done so much. I hope this song makes you remember all He's done in your life. I hope it encourages you to reflect on the goodness of God, the greatness of God, the mercy of God, the favor of God, and the power of God, and then celebrate that goodness. He sho' has been good," she adds.
The most recent song release is "Trust and Obey". "The song was was written by my friend, Gromyko Collins. It is a beautiful song and impacted my heart the moment I heard it. I knew I wanted to sing it because I feel every one of these lyrics. After all, without trust and obedience to the Father, I won't live the full life God has for me. I want to experience all that He has for me. To be transparent, there's been many times I have not obeyed and I did not trust Him but God's gracious hand helped to build my faith back up when I lost it and wasn't even sure how to find it. I found it in trusting God and obeying him even when it didn't make sense to me. So I hope this song reminds you to trust and obey the Father because we can trust Him. He's trustworthy. He's got a great track record!."
