Meek Mill’s summer smash “Amen” has a lot of religious folk in an uproar with its blasphemous lyrics, especially in the artist’s hometown of Philly. Perhaps the song’s detractors might take less issue if they knew that the “gospel” piano chords weren’t actually from a gospel record, but rather a loop of the intro from the Doobie Brothers’ yacht-rockin '78 hit “Minute by Minute”?
