O’Jays Get Political on Final Album

The O’Jays are stepping off their “Love Train” to address economic inequality.

The legendary R&B trio, who’s been wowing audiences with a discography of memorable hits for about 45 years, has a new single aimed at grabbing the attention of Capitol Hill lawmakers.

“Above the Law,” featured on what the O’Jays are touting as their final album, “The Last Word,” offers socially conscious lyrics reminiscent of The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion.” The song’s lyrics lament the disparagement of the nation’s working class and the hypocrisy of those who purport concern about the disenfranchised with the line, “As long as it’s working in your favor, you love the law.”

The song’s accompanying video includes footage of various members of Congress, as well as the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and scenes from Black Lives Matter and NFL protests.

“The Last Word” is set for a February release.
