Still, the rapper has already released five tracks — “Blessing Me Again,” “Words Are Few,” “Blessed & Highly Favored” (Remix), “Saved” and “You” — from the 32-track double disc.
Meanwhile, “Blessed and Highly Favored” (Remix) gives a hip-hop twist to The Clark Sisters‘ original version of the song; Faith Evans and 3rd Generation show off their talents on “Saved“; and Tye Tribbett croons on “You.”
You can listen to all five tunes, and also watch the music video for “Words Are Few,” on YouTube. In addition, fans can pre-order Bible of Love now via the usual digital platforms.
As previously reported, Snoop credits his late grandmother, Dorothy Tate, for introducing him to gospel music and inspiring him to release a gospel album of his own.
He says in a statement, “I am blessed to have so many legendary friends join me on this journey. As the country is in one of its heaviest times and is so divided, I wanted to make an album that spreads love and unity around the world. That’s what I was taught, so that’s all I know. Real love.”
The performance aired as a one-hour television special on BET Saturday, February 3.
