Devin Turner Addresses Abusive Relationships on “Butterfly”

devin-turner-now-or-never-750

I’d like to introduce you to indie rapper, Devin Turner. “Butterfly” is a narrative about a woman who has too often settled for mediocre and abusive relationships, but soon finds her reason for existence in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Realizing her value in this relationship with Christ causes her to make lifestyle changes and to live with a certainty that she can have a healthy relationship with a man who will respect and honor her the way that she deserves. This song communicates the fact that all women are beautiful, made in the image of God and have a purpose that He created them for.

Many hip-hop songs paint the picture that women are to be degraded and are to settle for low expectations in a relationship with a man. The metaphor that the song illustrates is that a woman with a “caterpillar” mentality will let the cocoon of society and popular opinion define her existence but a “butterfly” mentality bursts out of the cocoon of this mindset and soars high in the assurance of purpose and existence that can only be found first and foremost in a relationship with Christ.
