Hot on the heels of Beyonce’s Black Is King, Jay Z and Pharrell Williams are dropping some jewels for the culture. The duo teamed up for the track “Entrepreneur” which is set to release on Friday in conjunction with the new TIME issue “The New American Revolution” curated by Pharrell .
“I couldn’t be more grateful to curate “The Next American Revolution”—a special issue of @TIME Magazine that envisions a Black Future in an America where all people are actually created equal,” he said on Twitter.
Participants include Tyler The Creator, Yara Shahidi, Angela Davis, Kenya Barris, Naomi Osaka and 21 Savage to name a few.
Williams also said the song is a celebration of Black Ambition.
“The intention for a song was all about how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with,” Williams tells TIME. “Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education, and representation?”
In a snippet of the song on Apple Music, Jay Z stresses the importance of supporting Black businesses and starting one’s own ventures.
“Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you? For every one Gucci, support two FUBU’s.”
