Joss Stone And Nas Team Up For “Governmentalist”


Joss Stone teamed up with Nas for this angry rant against the powers that be that send our boys and girls to war. I give her credit for taking a stand on political issues in her music because sadly many of her contemporaries aren’t willing to take a stand on anything and maybe I’ll give her credit for having Nas on this…maybe.

The Queensbridge native’s verse sounds a little out of place and almost cut and pasted in. The retro soul production, the hook and the sentiment may be the strongest parts of this song for me. I still left with the feeling Joss Stone always gives me. White girl, Black voice, forced vocals that obscure the lyrics. I guess I can give her credit for doing it before Amy.

Her new album Colour Me Free is in stores and features this song.
