Lyfe Jennings had been away from the spotlight for a while up until the release of a single from his latest album 777 entitled “Slave”. The sex-drenched song features some questionably word choices to describe the deed, prompting comedian Amanda Seales and radio host Charlamagne The God to give their opinion on Lyfe’s new single.

The lyrics in question say, “Got your ass hoppin’ like a frog / Got your legs shakin’ like two wet dogs / This ain’t the part we fall in love / This is the part we kiss and f**k. / I’m gon’ beat it like a slave / So you don’t run away / Got the whips and chains / Call me master.”

That is also the part of the song featured in Seales’ video reaction she posted on Instagram, appearing confused and then shocked at his choice of words. In the captions accompanying her video, Amanda wasn’t pleased with the thought of comparing sex to hundreds of years of oppression and death for African Americans. Shortly after, Charlamagne reposted Amanda’s video with the caption reading, “Some of y’all don’t have any friends. If you did, you wouldn’t make mistakes like this record.” You can check out Charlamagne’s post with Amanda’s reaction here. 

Charlamagne’s repost triggered Jennings to respond with an Instagram post of his own, followed up by an exclusive statement to TMZ to clear up the intent of the song. Lyfe explained the slavery comparison is completely off-base and says the song was an homage to BDSM and 50 Shades Of Grey, which is clearly evident by the music video. Lyfe also said he feels the “cancel culture” has gotten out of hand and is almost just the same as bullying.

We gotta ask, what do you think about Lyfe Jennings’ new song “Slave”? Do you think his choice of words went left?
