Superfriend

Album: The Sound (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Erica Campbell of Mary Mary explained to SoulTracks that this crunk influenced number is, "about how people are here now and then they gone, and you don't really know where they went, but we know that we've all got a superfriend that looks out for us better than anybody else could, someone who will always be there, and that's God."
  • This features the southern rapper David Banner. Tina Campbell of Mary Mary told SoulTracks that Banner, "is a great dude, he was well-spoken, incredibly talented, a family man who's well-informed of the business that he's in. We worked a lot in the same studio, and when we had this song, it seemed like he could make sense on it. He's speaking from his heart, and the song became so much better when he added his element."
