“All this trouble in this here town…all this sh*t going down…when will they focus…on this…streets ride up with the TV crews…look Ma we on the news…but they didn’t notice…before this…”
John Legend has just released the visuals for his single Penthouse Floor featuring Chance The Rapper. It’s one of my favorite songs off of his latest album Darkness & Light. It’s an upbeat song, but the visuals gives the song a different meaning. In it we see John coming into a hotel amongst the workers. He moves upstairs through a Black Lives Matter picket line & then through a ballroom where it appears that a white guy in a MAGA hat is sitting. By the time John moves up to the penthouse floor where he invites all of the workers to hang out. That’s how he tears down the penthouse doors. It’s all about people rising up, moving to a higher level. He sings, “Go to the penthouse floor…let’s go, let’s go, let’s go…go to the penthouse floor…let’s go, let’s go, let’s go…let’s ride the elevators…they can’t keep us out no more…go to the penthouse floor…”.
