The album hit #1 in multiple countries and is certified six-times platinum by RIAA. It features Chapman’s lead single “Fast Car” and the timely “Talkin Bout a Revolution”.

“Fast Car”

“See my old man’s got a problem. He lives with a bottle that’s the way it is. Says his body’s too old for working. His body’s too young to look like his. My momma went off and left him. She wanted more from life than he could give. Said somebody’s gotta take care of him. So, I quit school and that’s what I did.”

“Talkin’ Bout a Revolution”

“While they’re standing in the welfare lines. Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation. Wasting time in the unemployment lines. Sitting around waiting for a promotion. Don’t you know they’re talkin’ ‘bout a revolution? It sounds like a whisper.”
