Jodeci Address Domestic Violence on ‘Nobody Wins’ Featuring B.o.B
After debuting their new song 'Nobody Wins' at the 2014 Soul Train Awards with B.o.B, Jodeci officially release the effort along with an accompanying lyric video. The song centers on domestic violence, which has been a big part of the national dialogue since football player Ray Rice assaulted his wife earlier this year.
K-Ci's lyrics detail a heated argument as dark images appear including a woman lying in a hospital bed and a couple pushing each other. "Lets talk about this, I'm glad that you missed / You almost tore up my face, we can afford to buy another place," he sings.
B.o.B. spits at the beginning and at the end of the song with a rapid, in-your-face flow, which works well next to Jodeci's smoothed out harmonies.
"We don't see the same, and we don't speak the same / But if we don't get s--- right this go 'round then we ain't gonna beat the game / Can see the pain, we entertain, when disagreements turn into blame / Then heated words turn into flames, under your skin it just aggravates," he spits over light drums and a looped vocal sample.
The former Uptown Records group is currently working on their reunion album, which will arrive in 2015.
