Makes no mistake: John Legend holds no punches when it comes to opinion of America’s social and political injustice — especially in regards to the presidency. This week, he continues to make his statement on the matter with a new single, “Penthouse Floor,” and a powerful visual to boot.
The clip — which is unfortunately sans the song’s feature, Chance The Rapper — sees Legend playing as a hotel employee to plays witness to a lot of the unrest, hate and ignorance that we’re all seeing unfold in front of us on the television screen as well as in our own neighborhoods. Chance adds a poignant verse that starts with a knock-knock joke and ends with another that hits home for his peers:
He said “What happened to the boy that climbed up the trunk?”
Then he pushed me off the top and said “Jump, n***a, jump!”
