U2 & Kendrick Lamar Song Collaboration “American Soul”

Kung Fu Kenny and Bono’s boys are back together for a track that bridges the gap between those two previous collaborations, “American Soul”.  “American Soul” appears to be the song Lamar sampled for “XXX.”, as Bono’s first lines appear in both tracks. It also seems to bleed right out of “Get Out of Your Own Way”, as Lamar opens with the same blessings with which he ended the previous single.   It’s also a pro-immigration and refugee call, as Bono sings lines like, “It’s not a place/ This country is to me a thought/ That offers grace/ For every welcome that is sought.”
