Today, Stevie Wonder used the occasion of the 36th birthday of his second oldest son, Mumtaz Morris, to announce something he has never done before. With a spirit of celebration, he released two songs at once. “Can’t Put It in The Hands of Fate” feat. Rapsody, Cordae, Chika, and Busta Rhymes and “Where Is Our Love Song” feat. Gary Clark Jr., are songs that provide instruction and inspiration for today’s global challenges.
Released on Wonder’s new label, So What The Fuss Music, marketed and distributed by Republic Records/Universal Music Group, both songs are written and produced by Stevie Wonder and are available now on all digital and streaming platforms.
“Can’t Put It In the Hands of Fate” features four of hip-hop’s visionary artists: rising star Rapsody, GRAMMY® Award-nominated Cordae, critically acclaimed Chika, and eleven-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated New York legend Busta Rhymes. Their collaboration across genres and generations exemplify the power of the need for action demanded by the song.
“Where Is Our Love Song,” featuring four-time GRAMMY®-winner guitarist, Gary Clark Jr., identifies what is needed as the world grapples with historic challenges, posing the question, “Where are our words with hope, prayer for peace, and our desperately needed song of love?”
Everything and everyone have been affected by Covid-19, especially the underserved Black and Brown communities. All of Stevie’s proceeds from the record royalties of “Where Is Our Love Song” will be donated to Feeding America.
“In these times, we are hearing the most poignant wake-up calls and cries for this nation and the world to, please, heed our need for love, peace and unity,” stated Stevie.
