Marvin Sapp, of gospel classic “Never Would Have Made It” fame, has teamed up with the Pied Piper of R&B alleged serial predator R. Kelly for Sapp’s upcoming album, Close, to be released on September 29.

According to, the song “Listen” was written and produced by the embattled R&B singer, who appears on the song with his signature vocals dispersed throughout.

The message in the song is supposed to be about God “trying to tell you something” and you need to listen.

What is God trying to tell R. Kelly?

Here’s a prophecy: This ain’t gonna go well for Marvin Sapp.
