There is a subtle but clear theme of positivity and optimism throughout the project, especially noted on the previously released singles It’s a Gift, featuring Nathaniel Star on vocals and Funkin Cause We Wanna, featuring Marlon on vocals. Both stand out even more in the context of the full album.
The songs on the album combine a seamless fusion of funk, soul, hiphop and uptempo jazz, which make is a perfect mid-summer release. This is a feel good project, which is exactly what we all need now.
