- Genre Shift - Eve still raps on her Lip Lock album, but the music is decidedly more pop/electronic/dance-oriented than the Hip Hop of her first three.
- Love Martyr - Love is Blind is about this, it's about her friend in a relationship that's physically abusive. Her friend is killed by the man and later Eve takes out her own revenge and kills him.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak - Eve dubbed herself as "a pitbull in a skirt" due to being able to rap as "hard as the men" and was tough, had short hair, but also had a feminine side. Over the years, she went through a Girliness Upgrade and started dressing more girly, growing out her hair and wearing more dresses.
