In the midst of romance rumors, Sir the Baptist and Brandy take it to church on “Deliver Me,” their duet off the Chicago crooner’s new album Saint or Sinner, which arrives today.
The spiritual and stirring track opens with Sir speaking about a private matter that’s close to his heart. “I remember my sister Mary would get beat by her husband, who was the deacon of the church,” he says. “The whole church knew, but no one would say anything.”
Brandy plays the role of Mary on the Sir-produced track, hitting an evocative tone with every note. “Love, deliver me,” she sings. “All he seems to do is hurt me.”
