Miguel teamed up with Los Rakas and Ceci Bastid, and joined several leaders and advocates in Adelanto, CA for a free #SchoolsNotPrisons concert. This showcase was organized to speak up about the unjust treatment of immigrants, advocate for the closure of all immigrant prisons and prioritize the fair treatment of immigrants who are awaiting a decision on their request to remain on U.S. soil.
Performing in front of thousands of attendees, Miguel debuted a new song entitled, “Now.” Slated to appear on his forthcoming album War & Leisure, the R&B crooner delivers a politically-charged anthem that finds him addressing P45, his administration and it’s treatment of POC.
“CEO of the free world now, build your walls up high and wide/make it rain to keep them out, that won’t change what we are inside” he sings. “I’m just saying, is that the look of freedom now?/ Is that the sound of freedom now?/ ‘Cause it’s plain to see a man’s integrity by the way he treats those he does not need/ and it’s time we talk about it, let’s not waste our common ground/we will fall for standing and watching, all in silence/Dear Lord, are we numb? Where we going right now? / No, not later.
