The new single “My Heart Says Yes” is #4 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart and headed towards the #1 position. A departure for Sneed and the gospel field, the soothing acoustic ballad can easily play between tracks by Robin Thicke or Maxwell on adult R&B stations where its also gaining airplay. ‘”Yeah, I get a lot of that,” Sneed laughs. “A lot of people didn’t think that was me singing at first because of the overall sound and feel of the song and the falsetto.”
“Supporting Sneed is a simple, delicate ostinato melody with a Brazilian beat led by acoustic guitar and muted percussion,” Bob Marovich writes in The Black Gospel Blog. “Understated and hushed, ideal for that moment in a worship service when easy does it.” Sneed’s first album in almost two years was scheduled for a late summer release but the single’s early and stratospheric success has led him to release the ten-song CD “My Heart Says Yes” which is in stores now!
