On Friday (August 21), Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z are slated to drop a news song called “Entrepreneur,” which they hope will shine a light on the ongoing struggle Black men and women go through in America.

  1. The song will reportedly coincide with Pharrell’s new TIME cover, “The New American Revolution” that will examine the country’s oppressive history and the “potential for an equitable future.”

    "The intention for a song was all about how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with," Williams told the magazine. "Especially as someone of color, there's a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you're starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education and representation?"

    He added, "The song is trying to communicate that when we stick together, treat each other better and welcome each other, there's more money and more opportunity for everyone."

     

  2. "Entrepreneur" is produced by Williams and fellow N.E.R.D. member Chad Hugo.

    Pharrell took to his Instagram page to promote the new single.

    “ENTREPRENEUR midnight ET,” he captioned the post.
