Although he’s currently on tour, John Legend is keeping things fresh by releasing a new visual to his single “Surefire”.

 

The iconic singer and songwriter has been busy promoting his latest album, in addition to staying abreast of social and political initiatives, like his work with the organization FreeAmerica.

 

In his “Surefire” video, John displays the trials and tribulations of Muslim Americans, from love, to racism, to being detained by government officials.

 

The timely video is no doubt a message to one of John’s least favorite people, Donald Trump. John has been very vocal about social justice issues as it pertains to the current administration, and this video is a clear and direct message on how he feels about the discriminatory treatment of Muslim Americans.


Get into the powerful visuals below.
