Preparing to release his new album Black America Again on November 4, Common performed a dramatic, stripped-down version of the project's title track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday night.

With minimalist backing instrumentation from Tonight Show house band The Roots, Common's intense politically-charged message was complemented by guest vocals from BJ The Chicago Kid—who put his own twist on Stevie Wonder's soulful hook from the original.
