The Christian Post reports: Grammy Award-winning gospel artist and actress Tamela Mann teamed up with her husband, NAACP Image Award-winning actor and comedian David Mann (also known as Mr. Brown) to release an album for Christians who want to enjoy intimacy without tasteless lyrics. Titled Us Against the World, the album is a departure from Tamela’s staple gospel sound and celebrates their 30-year union using R&B grooves. David Mann described the album as “baby-making music” and their son has described it as “back in the day music.”
I did add the album to my Apple music app so that I could review it for you guys, and I’ll get to that in a minute. But first let’s get into the comments and see how well (or bad) this album is being received by the public.
So, like I said, I did stream the album so I’m going to give you my take on each of the songs.
- The first track called “You” is about a man making a woman believe in love again after she’s been hurt. And you can hear it does have a very old school vide.
- The next track “Good Love” is about a couple who has been through a lot but still has love for each other.
- Ups and Downs is about exactly what the title says, a relationship that has been through its ups and downs. So there’s still no baby-making music yet…
- “I Love You” is about a man giving a woman bad news (like he has a baby that he never knew about) and the woman still saying I love you.
- “Making Up” is about getting back together after a terrible fight where the person has purposefully hit you below the belt.
- The next track “Feels Like” is about how a man can make you feel when he treats you right. I thought this MIGHT be a baby making song by the title, but it’s really not.
- Next is a track called “Still Do” which is about loving your spouse over the years and looking back at how your love has produced children and grandchildren. I’ve honestly never really thought about being a grandmother before, but I’m sure it must be a good feeling to see generations born out of the love you have for your spouse.
- The last song on the album is called “Signs” and I think this song is actually supposed to be the baby-making song, judging by the lyrics. Like, they say “Every time I let you lay one on me, you lay about three.” So I can see where they were going with this song. But it’s actually mid to uptempo. And I assume baby making music is going to be slow. And, it actually has a throw-back 80s vibe, like it could have been on the soundtrack to that movie 48 hours with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte. So I don’t know if it would be baby-making music to me. I’m not trying to make anymore babies anyway.
But I will say this, the album is cute lil R & B album, especially if you can stop picturing Mr. Brown in your head when you hear it. I just don’t think they should promote it as a love-making or baby-making album, because I don’t think that’s what it is. I think it’s a mature, love album, and they should promote it to the mature Christian market who would appreciate it. Instead of saying it’s baby making music.
