Macklemore Reflects on the Election on “Wednesday Morning”
Macklemore reflects on the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States on his new song titled “Wednesday Morning.” The former XXL Freshman calls for unity and fears the future for his daughter on the new track. “Wednesday Morning” is the second release Macklemore has dropped this fall. The first was “Drug Dealer” featuring Ariana DeBoo, which he performed on Wednesday night (Nov. 16) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
"And we fight for the people that haven’t had a voice/Fight for the first amendment, fight for freedom of choice/Fight for women's rights, if she does or doesn’t care/We ride for all the queer folk and fight for all to get married," he raps. Bump “Wednesday Morning” above.
The Seattle artist also recently wrote an open letter to his daughter after Donald Trump’s election win. “I don’t have control over Donald Trump becoming president,” Macklemore wrote. “That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they’re from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her.
