In a promo video released Monday night following the first presidential debate between Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Blige sings a song about a black mother’s fear for her son and the national crisis involving police officers shooting and killing unarmed black men.
“If an officer stops you, always be polite and never ever run away … promise mama you’ll keep your hands inside,” Blige sings.
“Is it a gun … is it a knife … is it a wallet … this is your life. It ain’t no secret … you can get killed just for living in your American skin.”
In the trailer, Blige also asks Clinton a poignant question: “I just want to know where do we go from here?”
The interview, which is billed an “intimate conversation,” will be available on Apple Music on Sept. 30.
