The most significant example of this is the fifth song, "God Says." Judging by the title, semi-Gospel tone and religion-tinged chorus -- "You can put the blame on me, I'm doin' what God says, what God says" -- you'd think that this was an ode to the Lord. But in listening to the full song, it becomes obvious that's it's a condemnation of modern day false prophets who make controversial statements -- like calling for President Obama's death -- then saying that such statements were God's word, not theirs. Another song where the surface is only scratched in the chorus is "Girlfriend," where a man out at a club denies his interest in a woman: "I don't like you (I got a girlfriend), I don't want you (I got a girlfriend), get away from me." But it becomes obvious during the song that his denials are hollow and that he's actually trying to convince himself not to stray.
It's not all religion and politics, though; there's some light and airy material too, like the first single, "4evermore," which features singer Algebra Blesset and rapper Phonte, and happens to be the album's best song. But the majority of songs are R&B for mature, thinking people who don't mind a few messages in their music.
