Style: Program-heavy R&B; compare to Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, Toni Braxton

Top tracks: "Heaven Hear My Heart," "Over and Over" (w/ PJ Morton), "Drops of Rain"

As the title of their seventh studio recording indicates, Trin-i-tee 5:7—gospel music's best-selling female trio—is now a duo.

The R&B twosome traces the album's emancipation M.O. with various songs of surrender ("Let It Go"), grace empowerment ("God's Grace"), thanksgiving ("I Don't Need a Reason"), and praise ("I Worship Your Name"). Seventeen songs is long, but the invigorating duet keeps it fresh with their hip vocals.
