Cops Up

Album: Lyfe Change (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Jennings discussed this fast-paced love tale on his official biography: "My heart is definitely with the ballads. But you have to mix and match. With 'Cops Up' the hook is great, the beat is great, and I think it's a song that these kids could get into. And I think it will allow me to expand my young audience even more."
  • Jennings explained why he titled the album Lyfe Change on his website: "My music has always been positive, touching people socially and emotionally. But I named this album Lyfe Change because this time I wanted to take it a step further and invoke people to make a change in their lives and in the lives of others. That's how we'll change the world, one life at a time."
  • This was originally written for the R&B duo, Luke & Q.
