The album notably contains "Lean On", which proved to be the biggest hit in their careers. It topped many charts worldwide, and placed Top 5 in many others, becoming the biggest [[ElectronicMusic EDM]] crossover since Avicii's "Wake Me Up!" until Music/TheChainsmokers' "Closer".

!!Major Tropes

* CoverVersion: "Lost" was originally by Frank Ocean.
* DarkhorseCasting: Most people featured on the album, with the exception of Ellie Goulding, Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, and Ariana Grande, aren't very well known in the US. They [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally wanted]] either Music/{{Rihanna}} or Music/NickiMinaj to do the vocals of "Lean On", but both refused.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Powerful", being sung in an almost conversational style between Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley, hints at them having sex.
* MoodWhiplash: Three songs, "Lean On", "Powerful", and "Be Together", are much more pop-oriented than the rest, and all three were released as singles. Clearly an intentional move to release the pop songs to the radio while the rest were made for dance parties.
* NewSoundAlbum: Less focus on reggae/dancehall (though there is still plenty), with added elements of pop and hip-hop.
* OdeToIntoxication: "Blaze Up the Fire" and "Light It Up", most obviously.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: "Lean On", being about friends getting through hardship.
* RepurposedPopSong: "All My Love" was originally made for the soundtrack of ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1'' before remixed to feature Machel Montano and placed on the album.
* AWildRapperAppears: Inverted with "Night Riders", which is a song by three rappers with a wild appearance from a reggae artist.
