To commemorate Juneteenth, TV On The Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe released a powerful protest song titled "People." With lyrics like "white power f*ckface," it'll need an FCC-edit before it can be played on the airwaves, but the song's refrain of "we got this" is a beautiful message of hope and solidarity. 

The track was co-written with Black Boltz and co-produced by TVotR drummer Roofeeo. It's available now exclusively via Bandcamp, and all proceeds will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Movement for Black Lives, and the ACLU. Listen below.
