Today, Joey Bada$$ shares the first song from his highly anticipated sophomore studio album AABA. The protest song “Land of the Free” arrives right in time for the looming Inauguration Day, which also falls on Joey’s 22nd birthday and the anniversary of his debut album’s release. The uplifting and funky production of the song offers a stark contrast to its serious lyrical content, which offers insight to the worldview of a young black man growing up in the United States.
2016 was a break out year for Joey Bada$$, between the success of his single in “Devastated” (which recently went Gold), his primetime television acting debut as Leon in the award-winning TV series Mr. Robot, his role in massive Calvin Klein and Adidas ad campaigns and main stage Coachella debut.

“Land of the Free” is now available on all digital platforms. Stay tuned for more news on Joey and AABA coming soon.
