Shame On Isaac Carree For Channeling R.Kelly On His Latest Project!


RANT: For me personally I like my Gospel music to move me in remembering  that it cost something to follow Christ , which this doesn’t.  Gospel singer Isaac Carree just dropped a new song,"Clean This House" and Lord how  I Hate It. This mess is nothing but secular music thinly veiled, while trying to pose as Gospel Music. And I can’t and won't buy it.  I'm sorry but we Christians need to  get  in touch with our reality. Our reality ( I'm not talking about the world ) is that if we believe that Jesus came to die for our sins  and the suffering it caused then it should be reflected in our work.

 We Christians (I'm not talking about the world) of all people should know better than to try and glorify Jesus with cheap music. If we believe that Jesus came to die for our sins  and the suffering it caused, then we ought to show some kinda sign that we believe.  And if we believe that sin is so serious that God died for it, how dare we cheapen that? How dare Isaac Carree write a trifling, petty song (sounding like R.Kelly)  that makes Christianity into some easy, bloodless answer to people's problems? HATE IT!

  1. I know little of R. Kelly, but your comments made me go check this song out...my verdict, this song is far more scriptural than Jason Nelson's Shifting the Atmosphere ever will be ( boarders on pagan theology at worst or a bad exegesis of the old testament at best). I listened to the first verse and no less than seven passages of scripture came to me. We must learn that we don't have a works based salvation...we are the elect of God...not the elite of God. So IMHO I will disagree with you based on the scriptural content of the song...something that a lot of gospel music lacks.

  2. Thanks for your comment Prerich45 we can agree to disagree. I'm very familiar with R Kelly music and at one time he was one of my favorite secular music mastermind in the music business. For me this piece sound just to much like R Kelly brand "Trap In The Closet." I'm sorry but this particular piece is to cheap of an offering for a Wonderful God. I don't like it!

    1. I completely agree with you Ann. I just googled "Did R Kelly write Isaac song"...and Oh My Word...came across this blog. Im so happy that you are standing for holiness! Although i respect Isaac and also R Kelly... if any one knows the spirit behing R Kellys music, you would understand Ann's point. R Kelly always had a very sexual spirit behind his music. Just go down memory lane and recall his music. It makes you wanna do the nasty. (Dont front!) Most of his stuff was about sex. So yes, it puts such a cheap spin on this song. Although the lyrics are fabbbbb just him sounding like R Kelly (and knowing what he stands for) makes it all but a song to glorify God. We ARE to judge by the fruit... and what fruit will this produce? The fruit of the worlds standards? Why did he want to sound like R Kelly so much? Just to sell a single? Just to be accepted by main stream media? Come on son....the same holds true for Mary Mary (since that was bought up) #carnal The word of God says for us to be separate from the world...not to join in with them. #Lordhelp and if you think im judging ...so be it. You should pray and ask God to help you see it HIS way.

    3. You guys are tripping. Yes the song does sound like an R Kelly song. I was looking that up this morning and that is what lead me here. But guys, keep this in mind, it takes all kind of music and people to reach those that God is trying to save. This song may be R. Kelly like and that may be what is needed to bring some souls in. Lets stop judging and start praying that the song can reach as many people possible.

      On another note, I'm waiting on R. Kelly to turn from secular music and to Gospel. I know he has it in him so lets pray for him too.

      Delete
    4. I agree with you Anonymous, even if R. Kelly did have something to do with the song, Paul said "I Paul die daily". Only God knows the workings He has going on in Kelly's life. Secondly, if it wasn't was contempory gospel, I would have never begin to appreciate gospel music so many years ago. Let the words touch you heart and ask God to clean your house (we all have a little dirt under the rug).

  3. I thought this was R. Kelly singing until just now :). I love this song. I was a little bothered when I thought R. Kelly sang it but that based off my imperfect human reactions. Truthfully if it was heart felt and not a scheme to capitalize of gospel music I wish R. Kelly would write something like this. I think it's great that you have accepted the challenge to charge Christians to live the standard set by Jesus. But (this is just my opinion) I think the fact that he sounds like R. Kelly is what really bothers you about this song. (sidebar- I pray IC wasn't channeling R.Kelly) If nothing else maybe this song doesnt speak to you because its not your testimony. Truthfully I think this song is a sinners prayer or one who isn't very seasoned in their walk with God, or one who has just refuses to let go and let God. That may not be real for you but its very real for many. Everyday we all need to ask God to renew the His spirit within us......in other words clean this house.

    2. r kelly is a good writer for secular or gospel songs...r kelly been crying out for a long time through his songs...his need for God to clean him up,him being sorry for his past and present sins...u here it in songs"i believe i can fly".."i need an angel"," i look to you"..."God's grace" "there he is",etc......Don't matter if a secular artist writes a gospel song,aslong as its sincerely done,im down wit it....May not always like it,but respect it..in this case i like it! imoing to buy issac carree album this summer like i bought the first one...

  4. It is hard to focus on the godly message of this song when it is sounds like a very familiar R. Kelly song, one that did not represent God in anyway. To someone not familiar with R.Kelly it may not be a problem. However, i do believe,in gospel music,when it comes to the message of Christ, simple and original always works best. Because of this songs similarities with a secular song,its meaning has been compromised. As Christians we must be careful not to associated the gospel with controversy.

I don't understand the problem. I love it I'm buying it

    2. thank you Julius Cole. you people are hypocrites. you were not always squeaky clean and according to GODS standards you will never be. GOD knows Isaac Carree's heart and in my opinion he was not secular with the song at all. stop judging and start judging the issues in your own life.

    3. Julius Cole I'm sorry but your're wrong....I'm not a Mary Mary fan and have never been. I don't have anything against the Mary's but their kind of gospel music is not for me.

    4. i have a question do you think that its an age thing old church compared to new school church? like pastor Shirley Caesar,Clark sisters,Winans, vs Kurk Franklin,Mary Mary,and so on is it about old vs new or grand mama's church to the new church? basically CHOICE!

      Delete
    5. What in world do age have to do with the Gospel of Christ? Could you give me an example of a old church? Could you give me an example of a new church? I like Lecrae, Deon Kipping, Tasha Cobb, Canton Jones etc. This don't have any thing to do with age. This song is awful in my opinion.

    6. First of all, all music comes from God. What corrupts music is its lyrical content. Classical or Jazz music shouldn't be condemned because it may lack spiritual content. Music is for our pleasure as humans. If you were to play an "A" on a piano, that "A" would be the same no matter what genre of music used it. It's our WORDS that have the power of life and death in them. Since God works in mysterious ways, he may be using some people to reach others with music that may sound secular in nature, but is spiritual in content because of what is being said in the song to hopefully reach those who otherwise would not listen to gospel music. Isaac Carree's song may sound like R. Kelly, but if someone listens, and because of it wants a relationship with God, what's wrong with that? There's nothing in this song that's lyrically blasphemous against the God we all love and serve, so it shouldn't be condemned.

    7. Just when did A Holy God put His approver on all kind of music? Stop with the foolishness....If this artist had the right heart he would not have mimicked R. Kelly at all. Like I have stated and will continue to state I don't like it.

  5. The fact that he sounds like r kelly makes him wack but it makes the song good. I got the message in the song. Is there a scripture that backs the fact that you strongly hate an attempt to honor God. You shouldnt be so judgemental. Let God judge. You are going too far with your position, just because he sounds like Kelz doesnt mean he isnt genuine. Its about the message not the measanger

  7. The problem with "CHRISTIANS" this day and age is we judge without seeing one's real heart. We focus so much on the past of a person that they are uncomfortable moving forward from that which is just past. Would the christian community accept R Kelly singing this song...which he did write if he had not had such a public past. Remember, we are all sinners in the eyes of God and have the right to be forgiven and redeem ourselves. If you call yourself a christian and hate the song because of judgment then look back in the word and you will find fault in yourself. If it's just that you don't like the song then more power to you. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    1. So glad that I am not alone in knowing how wrong this song is. God is not the author of confusion, so the fact that we as christians can't agree that this song is a good thing should make us put up a red flag. No Christian should "Channel"anyone. That is a form of witchcraft, but the "Church"is too sleep to see it! God created us to be unique & original. Why r we ok w/mimicing anyone & now we have stooped so low to mimic R-Kelly no less. WAKE UP!!!Our children need us..

  10. I have heard Take Me to the King, it is NOTHING like anything with R Kelly. Take Me to the King is a true testament of how life can wear us out but God can renew and restore if we call on Him.
    I don't have anything against Isaac Carree, but if the announcer would not have said his name, I would thing for sure it was R Kelly. The song will reach some who probably are secular, backslidden, or away from God. That is what the Gospel is suppposed to do. Thank God for a gospel song that's not preaching to the choir. It took alot of guts to do that after what he's been through. Personally the song is not to me, but I am rejoicing over anyone who get restore, receives, or gets save because of it. (Christians seem to forget that not only did Jesus come for lost, but he also ate with sinners.)

  11. Yes, Isaac does sound like R. Kelly in this song but why does that matter? Do you not hear the content of the song? Do you not hear his testimony? You are obviously missing the point of this song. We all need to understand that everyone is different which means everyone has different ways of praising the Lord. Isaac praises the Lord through music and that is all that matters.

    Enjoy your day Saints.

    2. Ann,

      You choose to not hear the testimony for reasons that are beyond any of us. But at the end of the day we all are entitled to our own opinions.

      There is a blessing in this song and it is meant for someone.

      Delete
  12. I guess the back drop of this song is probably what gives the song a bad feel. Mr. Carree (married) slept with another man's wife. I think it's about accountability. This is not judgment this is accountability. I think that is what Ann may be trying to push. Plus we know R-Kelly's history. And please stop misusing the term judging and hypocrite. Reread your Bibles and see what Jesus was actually referring to.

  13. I am just curious … and please note I HAVE NEVER been a fan of R. Kelly’s… Was this same type of objection done regarding Deitrick Haddon’s “Well Done” sounding like Prince, or almost any of Kirk Franklin’s music? Yes, this does sound a lot like R. Kelly, but if you listen to the WORDS… that’s where the message comes from, and the fact that it does sound similar to R Kelly may touch folks who otherwise would not listen to gospel, and change their hearts to seek after GOD. In addition, convict some who may have backslidden. That’s just my thoughts.

  15. There is a true message in this song did we forget R kelley wrote a gospel album and the gospel radio played it regardless of him being a secular artist hmmmmmmm? When I first heard the song My real objective was to listen to the lyrics the beat was captivating but I was interested with the content,and all I could say was wow. As for me I could relate totally I wamt God tho clean this house that should be every believers prayer. If you knew anything about music and have a true ear ther are numerous artist that resemble each other,does that mean we should not listen to them and do you know there are tons of writers and producers who do secular and gospel music? Anyone can write or produce a song where ther heart is and the God they serve is what matters. Before you go on judging other people look at what you are doing in your life, your goal should be to glorify Him in all you do.

  16. Sure the song sounds like R Kelly. But if you listen to the song it speaks to the struggle of alot of Christians and people not like Christ. If we stay stuck on the R Kelly part maybe thats a issue with us and not the song. I think the problem sometime with Christians is we want to stay in our own box and minister with and to each other. God commands us to be fishers of men. I think this song will catch the ear of a secular non Christian and lead them to Christ. If it affects one person then Issac has done his job. Be blessed

  17. I have read all of these comments and I am flabergasted by some of them!!! For everyone here to be "CHRISTIANS" some of us sure aren't acting like it. I am a person in the younger generation and I LOVE this song but I LOVE ALL (I repeat ALL) gospel music. I know some people in my generation who WILL NOT listen to gospel music at all so I feel this song will catch their ear and bring them into the house of God. I believe older people know of the Lord but the younger generation is growing up differently then the people before us. The people in my generation and the ones after me are the future and if we don't bring them into the house of God then it will be lost. So I believe that if this song brings in souls it's a winner!! We shouldn't put a song down just because it sounds like someone else A LOT of songs sound like other people (this has been going on for years}. I just wish people would listen to the lyric of the song and not just the beat because the lyric is what should move you. Obviously there is something deep down in you as to why this song bothers you sooo much but the song is NOT a bad one it has a VERY true message for people of ALL ages and if you would open your ears and heartto see it then maybe it could help you with your broken spirit because the person you are portraying yourself to be on this blog is not one who is TRUE in CHRIST. He said "Judge not, that ye be not judged. Matt 7:1"

    EVERYONE HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!

  18. This is ridiculous on so many levels! "Christians" kill me talking about the "world". Do you Ms. Ann not realize that you live within that same world you condemn in your thread? You are not seperate and apart. You should. How else would you know so much about R. Kelly as to be turned off by a gospel artist that sounds like him? Additionally, has it never occurred to you that Christians don't need to he saved? Maybe its gonna take someone unfamiliar with Isaac Career mistaking him for R Kelly to.feel the power of the Lord. Maybe this song does not need to be limited to Gospel stations to broaden its reach; because once again Christians don't need to be saved. I respect your choice not to like the song but I pray God opens your heart and ears to be receptive to the message and not the voice of the messenger. Id hate for you to pass Jesus on the street because he didn't sound or look like you thought he should.

    1. Torrie I want to thank you for the comment.

      And you know what! You just might be on to something, Isaac Carree was most likely not authorized by God, nor sent by the Holy Spirit, as a minister to or for me since I can't and I flat out refuse to receive the message that he is bringing. He probable was sent to those like you who don't know who Christ is "right now".

    3. Ann:
      I, too, am very passionate about the word of GOD. I will not give my opinion of the song, but instead, share this verse:
      A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.


      I have a tendency to go into debates with my unsaved family members in an attempt to reach their hearts. I want them saved at whatever cost! I raise my voice and sometimes I cry, but never judge. I explain what is written in the word of GOD! You have yet to use your sword to prove your point. Study to show your self approved.

      I will tell you that your right. P&W should be HOLY before GOD (Levitucus Chap 10). There altar of GOD must remain HOLY.
      Paul said, "you must become all things to all ppl that they might be saved." So first yourself, what will it take that individual to bring him to GOD? Got the answer? Nope, only GOD does.

    1. But how can you say that he intentionally tried to sound like another artist? To me its more of the music that reminded me of R Kelly. Isaac Carree has always sounded like that to me.

We all need that....I know I do.

  20. I read through most of these replies and I understand both sides of this issues all have a point. I don't recall anyone leaving a prayer on the issue because we don't know what Isaac was thinking when he song this song and how he may have perceived what making this song will do. So heavenly Father I thank for this brother in Christ that song this song. He is a part of the body of Christ and we all are at different levels in our walk. I thank you that you loved us when we were unloveable and not thinking of you. I thank you that you still forgive us for our mistake and you don't keep bringing them. Teach the body of Christ how to love like you love. So I commit Isaac this song and R kelly unto you thank you for your finished work in both of there lives. I thank you for the attention it brought to the believers. I hope they realize with all their comments they are now responsible for taking it to you in prayer because if God can make a donkey talk He can use anything to bring him glory. What the enemy tried to use for evil God will turn this thing around. In Jesus name. Let's take it to God in prayer and watch for the results

Then you have questioned his calling/anointing...Kind of why Jesus was crucified. Wow...say you don't like the song but don't crucify the artist and his sincerity if you don't know his heart....

    You may not get the message because your heart and mind are hard or closed. Sometimes the disciples who were chosen missed Jesus' messages and they were right there with him. You need to reevaluate how you come across. Had this been an aethiest or fledgling Christian reading your initial rant...my word!

  24. Seems to me that Ann's issue is she has some past issues with things she did whle listening to R. Kelly songs and it is bringing upd memories she herself hasn't gotten past. Just my opoinion. Oh and another think, Ann you said you weren't judging him but you said he didn't have the right heart when he did this song. How can you perceive to know where his heart was at the time he was recording this song. Every song isn't for everyone but someone will find deliverance in this song which is what the end result should be. If Jesus ate and hung out w/ only believers how would the sinners be saved? He (Jesus)talked to sinners from where they were to meet ther needs to show thme there is a better way and the lyrics of this song speaks to alot of peopele. Oh and by the way I am very familiar to R. Kelly songs I am 43 and know enough, but I wasn't affected when I heard it my attention was on the message as should be with all. God Bless

  26. There is no love in judgment. Just because someone doesnt worship God the same way you do does not mean you have the right to put your mouth on them. Thats the problem with many Christians and I am a Christian too..God has the final say & you have no idea whether God accepts Isaac Carree's worship or not. Sometimes some things are better left unsaid. Don't be so self righteous. We are only made righteous through the blood of our Savior. Be humbled.

  27. Wow I've read all the comments and I just keep being brought back to 1 in particular...u(Ann Brock) stated that you like Lecrae as well as Canton Jones. I need you to check the discography and history of these artists but both artists have clearly stated in the past that they sample some secular artists music. Even if they never wouldve stated it you can clearly hear it in their music. So I wonder is it just something personal you have against Isaac? Or did you just throw out those contemporary gospel artist names just so you wouldn't seem biased? U can't like one artists and then dislike the next who's doing the exact same thing.

Not only because it sounded like R Kelly ( though that was a distraction) but also because it reminded me of when people say that gospel music is 10 years behind. ( People keep asking if R Kelly wrote it but I don't honestly think that if R Kelly wrote a gospel song today it would sound that old school) As a Christian I've always believed that we serve a creative and innovative God (after all he created us and made this beautiful earth) so as children taking after their father we should also be creative and innovative. The music we produce should sound unlike anything we hear in secular music. No one has to ever accuse us of sounding old school or redundant. Don't even get me started on redundant! (How can we have 21 different covers of the same song in the same year on the radio???) I believe that freshness in part is what will draw people's attention. Like I said I'm glad people were blessed by the song and other songs like it, but overall I desire for much greater things from Gospel music.
