Just thought I'd stop in and let you know what I'm listening to on the way to the polls. Recently, I brought a few tracks from Common's new album "Black America Again" that released on November 4th. Funny I didn't realize that Common was about to drop a new album, but why wouldn't he with all the social issues going on these days, making this offering right on time.
"Black America Again" has fifteen tracks empowering the black community, but the one that stuck out on election day features BJ The Chicago Kid titled "The Day Women Took Over." When listening I thought, could this be a prediction of some sort, of the election of Hillary Clinton and how things could be or maybe will be once she's elected?
The outcome of this election will be interesting and if the song or the album sheds any light, it puts in to melody that America still has a long way to go with social injustice; however, our recent choices in our leader shows America is growing wary of the same old thing and change is coming no matter how much some people in our nation buck to the idea of things being different.
At this moment, I can't think of a better album or artist that fits my 2016 Election Day soundtrack than Common and "Black America Again." So, before you cast your vote or after you have voted. Listen you may find it appropriate too.
As I cast my vote today I'm going to have this track on my mind. As I listen to the results tonight I'm going to have this song in routine. As a black women I'm going to have "Black America Again" on my mind because it's a black man not only expressing his love and concern for the black community, but expressing his love and uplifting the black woman as well. :)
