"Love Action (I Believe in Love)" was precisely as packaged: an homage to love, as its title suggests. This song is a semi-autobiographical account of vocalist Phil Oakey's relationships. Oakey's lyric, "I've been a husband and a lover too" alludes to how he'd been unfaithful to his then-wife. He explained to Mojo: "It was a celebration of the hope that people could be more open about their sex lives." https://bit.ly/3wlXnMc

“There are touches of R&B, touches of jazz, touches of hip-hop, touches of classical, Cuban music, West African music, house music,” Martin said of his album in a statement. “You’re going to hear all elements of Black music within this record. It’s not one element I can leave out if I call myself a true Black artist.” - https://bit.ly/30sbO7o https://soundsofcrenshaw.com/terrace-martin
