In celebration of MLK Day and in opposition to Trump's declaration to build a wall, the ladies sing an uplifting protest version of their viral hit.
It’s been quite some time since Jenifer Lewis dropped a new version of ”In These Streets,” but for the hilarious viral song’s return, she teamed up once again with Brandy and Roz Ryan for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day protest version of the catchy tune.
“Fifty million of us will march down south and we will tear down that wall,” the ladies sing, pointing to Trump’s declaration that he will build a wall across the US-Mexico border. “Fifty million of us will do what we have to keep our people free.”
Lewis captioned the video with a Nina Simone quote, writing, “An artist’s duty is to reflect the times.”
This isn’t the first time the Black-ish actress has shared a song to reflect current events. She dropped an election remix of “In These Streets” back in November, singing, “I don’t care who you are or where you work, get your a– out and vote.”
We hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next ”In These Streets” remix, but until then, take a page out of Brandy, Roz, and Jenifer’s book and, whether through song or some other form, make your voice heard.
