6 Songs That Prove Kendrick Lamar Is In Love With Africa

4. Alright


Alright is one of Kendrick’s most important songs. The simplicity of its hook – he repeats the lyrics ‘We Gon’ Be Alright’ several times – gives it a powerful message of hope. Protesters in the Black Lives Matter movement have adopted that mantra in some of their rallies as a call for resilience and strength in the face of their struggle. Unsurprisingly, this is another song which was inspired by his visit to South Africa.

‘Going out there really inspired me. I wrote a lot of records out there. Just going to South Africa and being able to move around out there like I did. That was a turning point.’
