Toby Mac - Irene

The story of “Irene” is, it’s about a girl, and I wrote it with Randy Crawford and Jeff Savage who are good buddies of mine. But it’s about a girl that she got pregnant just before her senior year and felt like, “Well, that’s it. You know, all the things I planned on doing, I can’t do anymore.”

L.A. garment district, wanted to really capture culture.

“Irene” is a cultural song. You know, it’s got Latino flavor. It’s got Urban flavor, African American flavor. It’s got a little bit of Reggae.

I need to be somewhere that’s cultural. Asian people here, African American people there, Latino people here, Indian people over here. It’s like, you take all that and you -- it just feels right for a song like “Irene.”

It’s really God sort of whispering in her ear, we sort of just let everybody -- make everybody aware of it -- but it’s like God whispering in her ear, “I still love you.” You know, “I still have plans for your life. You’re still mine.”
