[I wish I was making this up but this is literally on the front of their website:
Update: Thank you EX Times readers. It seems as though the obscene remarks were removed from their site.
The album is called the Sound. Here is a snippet of the lyrics to a song they did with David Banner. On this song he is confessing to still be a sinner. Check it out.
Mary Mary feat. David Banner "Superfriend"
Lord Im so weak and scared to run
With how I done to deserve a life like this
The devils scared to fight us in the light
He like to hide in the mist of religion
But I know that my God is listening there for me
Theres a greater mission
your no girl your no man but a plan for greater peace
I'll fight for the light til my flesh off the cease
I'm fighting the devil fighting for release
And in the church Lord I look at as Satan
Cause in my music I curse
But Im trying to do better and thats the thing that really hurts
All this sex and the drugs in my life mean nothing
When my superfriend hurts me at night tears come rushing
Theres no Kryptonite no dealing no lie that could be told
That can seperate the power that you have over my soul
So stuntin is a habit when im riping this mic
Yall thinking im a pimp but im trying to be like Christ
Its real life yeah

Mary Mary Touring With Maxwell
The dynamic gospel duo Mary Mary was invited to open the final three shows for Maxwell's North American summer concert tour. The chart-topping duo opened for the BLACKsummers'night tour on August 2 in Jacksonville, Florida, and August 3 in Charleston, South Carolina, and will be opening again for the final show of their Columbia Records label mate on August 5 in Durham, North Carolina. The gospel group is still soaking in the success of another No. 1 hit "God in Me" from their most recent No.1 album "The Sound."—SG
A source explains what happened during this tour:
Max stopped off at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Prudential Hall on Wednesday night, and he brought his two main weapons: that soulfully rich voice and sex appeal. Yeah, sex appeal. Even the most heterosexual man has to admit that Max has it. The women eat up every second of Max’s elegant wooing, and he drives the ladies wild with his natural charisma.
After Chrisette Michele opened, Maxwell came out in sunglasses, accompanied by his booming band. He started things off with a classic: “Get to Know Ya.” He stood at the mic singing, standing in an open stance. He took his glasses off, and ladies started to scream as if he had stripped down.
The lights faded to black and came back on, as Max dropped down to a squat and started clapping his hands. The music turned into “Sumthin’ Sumthin’.” As he sang, he went into a one-legged split, Jackie Wilson-style.
After “This Woman’s Work” and “Pretty Wings,” women started coming down from the back rows and lining up in front of the stage to give him bouquets of roses and hopefully get a hug. One lady even threw a pair of panties onstage. He later addressed the fellas, calling his concert the “greatest setup ever.”
“If you can’t get yourself some a– after this show right here,” Maxwell laughed. “I was looking out from the beginning. Some people wanna hate, but I been setting you up from the beginning.”
So there’s no accusing of “hating on” Tina and Erica, there you have it. Mary, Mary got had, as checker pieces in a big set up to help men get free sex courtesy of Maxwell. Although the pair claimed they aren’t trying to entice men, they see nothing wrong with showing off what’s underneath.
“Sometimes, people think we’re a little bit sexy. I don’t have a problem with that,” she says. “I would like to think that I’m sexy. I have a husband who I would like to think that every time he sees me. Truth be known, I’m a woman. I would love to be appealing to men. It is not my endeavor [to] entice, to cause anyone to lust.” source (our italics)
