    The O’Jays are hanging it up. Capping 50 years, 30 studio albums, and countless unforgettable cuts, the Ohio-bred hit squad has announced their final album, The Last Word, will arrive at the top of 2019.
    Today, they’ve released the first single from the album, “Above The Law,” along with the track’s politically-edged video, featuring clips of Colin Kaepernick, the Black Lives Matter protests, the swearing-in of Brett Kavanaugh as the country’s next Supreme Court justice, as well as Harvey Weinstein and the slew of sexual criminals that sparked #MeToo. The song was written by the legendary, Betty Wright, who noted the track “describes the habits and habitat of true menaces to society,” in a statement.
