‘joy.’ is a drum heavy number complete with rich female backing vocals and the catchy chorus does stick in your head. Then we have the sombre ‘God Only Knows’ as they sing “God only knows what you’ve been through. God only knows what they say about you” and the light piano is truly beautiful alongside their harmonies. Interestingly, this album includes a duet version of the song with none other than music legend Dolly Parton and the lyrics are conveyed with such raw emotion. A definite highlight on this record.

Lines like “If the world is listening, this is my confession you are my obsession” does give it a love song vibe as that’s what it. Just like its predecessor, a remix featuring Lecrae & The WRLDFMS Tony Williams is included here as they sing about the themes of renaissance and renewal.
For KING & COUNTRY enlist the talents of Kirk Franklin & Tori Kelly on ‘TOGETHER’ and Kelly’s voice soars like a majestic bird as this powerful gospel tune fills the speakers with Franklin’s positive affirmations. A radio-friendly tune.
