John Legend dropped an emotionally impactful new song on Friday called "Preach." Consequence of Sound reports the song addresses the idea of creating societal change. In the course of the tune, Legend sings about hoping and praying for change versus working for it. The chorus says, "I can't sit and hope/I can't just sit and pray/that I can find a love/when all I see is pain...and though I do believe/I can't just preach." In the accompanying video, we see scenes of racial bias among police officers, school shootings, and migrants being detained at the border. The video takes advantage of YouTube's new fundraising platform with Legend calling on viewers to donate to the FREEAMERICA campaign, which "aims to amplify the conversation about mass incarceration."
