The new song, ‘Change,’ assembles some of Hip Hop and R&B’s most prized male hitmakers of the last 25 years to bring attention to racial and social injustice.
Toplined by serial hitmakers Jermaine Dupri, Ne-Yo, Johntá Austin and Bryan-Michael Cox, the quartet of singer-songwriters and producers called on a lineup of their industry friends including Anthony Hamilton, Kirk Franklin, Common, Smokie Norful, Rotimi, Eric Bellinger, PJ Morton, and more for the charity single set to benefit the Social Change Fund.
Speaking on the collaborative effort, Dupri stated:
“We created the song to call attention to these long-standing issues,” he said. “Members of the global community are now awakened to issues affecting BIPOC [Black & Indigenous People of Color]. The global pandemic forced us all to reevaluate everything from our health to police brutality and systemic racism. We are now witnessing a paradigm shift that creates an opportunity for real impactful change.”
