Black – The-Dream: Song of the Day 4/30

Over the last few days, the United States has been in a swarm of talk about the racist comments by Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling. His bigotry has spread much farther than the sports community and even artists like The-Dream are offering their take on the situation and racism as a whole on the track “Black”.

He has been renowned for years for his songwriting skills but “Black” may be one of The-Dream’s most poignant works to date. This track may never find its way onto an album but the Dream’s connectivity to the issues at hand along with his pure emotion make “Black” a stirring song worth a listen for even those who have never heard The-Dream’s name before.

Watch the official video for “Black” below.
