Jermaine Dupri's 'Change' Reflects On World's Current Climate
Change is in the air, and Atlanta rapper, songwriter and producer Jermaine Dupri has just the song for this moment.
“Change” is Dupri’s new song that features Black male artists including Ne-Yo, Common and Kirk Franklin among others. It’s written in the style of the 1985 hit “We Are the World,” a song for charity written and sung by multiple famous artists, including Michael Jackson, to address famine in Africa.
All of the proceeds from "Change" will go to the Social Change Fund, a social action fund created by basketball stars Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. They say the organization's mission is to use the money to support organizations that are working to liberate Black people and advocate for indigenous people and communities of color.
We’ve all been through changes this year, and Dupri’s new song reminds us to stay strong, stand up for what we believe in, and support one another.
