EARTHGANG fans' wait for new music will soon be over when the group releases their new album Ghetto Gods this week. The Atlanta-based duo has been ramping things up in the lead-up to the set's release as they get firmly into promo mode. That includes giving us singles like recent release "All Eyes On Me." As we get into the home stretch, the duo gives us one last listen with their latest single "AMEN."

Despite the religious title, the song is about a different type of devotion. "I need devotion, I need attention / Someone to do things I can not mention," group member Olu sings to start. "Someone to prove to me that you're different / Someone who got it, someone that gets it." Backing him is a sample of the breakdown from Musiq Soulchild's "Just Friends (Sunny)" that's turned into a choir element and backed by a bumping beat.

The fellas take turns delivering verses about the kind of girl they're looking for to give them heavenly love. And in case what the fellas are rhyming doesn't spell that out for you, they bring out Musiq himself on the chorus to give it to you straight as he sings, "Get down on your knees for me / Get down on your knees for me, yeah / Get down on your knees for me / If you really love me, if you really need me."

In addition to preparing the album for public consumption, EARTHGANG also put energy into making sure the push for the album goes off with a bang (including shooting five videos for the album the last weekend of January). While we wait to see what those will look like and on Ghetto Gods' arrival, you can listen to "AMEN" when press play and get a possible preview of its video in the visualizer below.
