The Roots crew released a new single called ‘Tomorrow’ on Saturday (April 26). The song, which features Raheem DeVaughn, is from their upcoming album, ‘…and then you shot your cousin.’
A slight departure from their previous single ‘When the People Cheer,’ ‘Tomorrow’ is a piano-driven ballad with optimistic words from DeVaughn.
“Sending a message to god and heaven / I’m thankful to be alive / Cause you sleep from eleven to seven, work hard from 9 to 5,” he sings.
On the chorus, DaVaughn adds, “‘Cause everybody need an angel / And everybody needs a smile / And everybody has an angle / And everybody wants tomorrow right now.”
Although the song doesn’t feature a rap from Black Thought, the Roots have created a breezy thought-provoking tune. The message is quite clear: Although the world is filled with people from different backgrounds, we are all striving for a better tomorrow.
The Roots’ 11th studio LP, ‘…and then you shot your cousin,’ is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 19.
