Common shares the full version of his powerful new single “Black America Again.”Common shared a politically-charged video for his single “Black America Again,” earlier this week, which included the difficult-to-watch footage of Alton Sterling’s shooting. In the song, Common addresses the race issues within America that have led to this type of injustice, but it turns out, there’s more to the song, as Common has revealed with the release of the full 6-minute version today.
Another verse from Common is included, and there’s a powerful behind-the-scenes, with bass provided by Esperanza Spalding, ad-libs by Chuck D and MC Lyte, and production from Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper. Of course, the one-and-only Stevie Wonder is credited as a feature for his vocal contribution.
The song is set to appear on the Chicago rapper’s forthcoming album, also titled Black America Again.
