TALK ABOUT IT
Nicole C. Mullen
Talk About It proves that the success of Nicole C. Mullen's first (self-titled) album was no fluke. Mixing fast beats and soulful vocals, her second effort ranges in style from pumping hip-hop and R&B funk to heartfelt, moving ballads. Tracks are sprinkled with verse readings, cheerleader routines, and other touches that bring a sense of fun or poignancy. And, most important, her message comes through.
Mullen's lyrics clearly exalt key Christian themes. In the title track, Mullen declares: "Every knee shall bow / and every tongue confess / Jesus is marvelous. / Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
In "Baby Girl," she lifts up a young friend by telling her, "Don't you know your worth? / You're a diamond hiding on a shelf. / God has made you a shining star."
In "Call on Jesus," Mullen reminds us where strength comes from: "Sometimes, I'm hiding away from the madness around me / But when I call on Jesus, / all things are possible."
