After a five year hiatus Kirk Franklin returns with the single “Wanna Be Happy?“. This song is the first single from the forthcoming full project due out this November. Kirk’s “Hello Fear” from 2011 sold over 570,000 units and spent 19 weeks atop Billboard’s Top Gospel and it’s single “I Smile” spent 20+ weeks on top of the Hot Gospel Songs Charts.
Billboard asked Kirk Franklin what inspired the new single to which he replied…
First and foremost, every human being wants to be happy. And we will try different things all in the pursuit of that feeling. With this song I’m saying if you really want to be happy, you have to start with the originator. It’s like wanting to lose weight. Do you really want to lose weight? Because if you do, there’s a price to pay: You have to work at it. And this song is saying if you really want to be happy, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of what that is. We’re not the architects of our lives. We’ve got to go to the manufacturer. And it’s my goal to try to lead people to the manufacturer of their souls.
