I remember #BSlade (fka #Tonex) from growing up in church. Glad to know that he’s still just as innovative as he is owning of his sexuality.
B. Slade, formerly known as gospel singer Tonéx, caused a firestorm on the internet after releasing a song slamming members of the black church who shame him because he’s gay.
The song, titled “Conversation,” is recorded to the instrumental of Beyoncé‘s popular record “Formation,” in which the singer addresses those who criticized his sexuality, more specifically his attire, during a recent performance at the Love Center — a church in Oakland, California.
“Y’all haters corny with that ‘He needs deliverance’/check out your choir stand/They all need deliverance,” Slade raps. “Attack my character/But Half of y’all Closeted.”
