  • Analysis Of Wale's 'Attention: Deficit'

    The lyrics in the chorus indicate Wale’s newfound belief in the theory of ontological equality, the theory that all people are created equal in the eyes of God. “Shade doesn’t matter, heart makes the lover,” sings Michele in the chorus. She goes on to list different shades of brown, implying that they are nothing but colors and have no impact on who we are as people.
