Ten years after the release of his Grammy-winning album Black Radio, Robert Glasper will return with the upcoming release of Black Radio III.
Due February 25, Glasper has enlisted in the services of Q-Tip, Jennifer Hudson, H.E.R. Yebba, Common, Ty Dolla $ign, Esperanza Spalding, Ant Clemons, India.Arie, and more. “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Black Radio than by releasing Black Radio III,” Glasper says.
He has also shared the latest single from the project, “Black Superhero” with Killer Mike, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Big K.R.I.T. “’Black Superhero’ is a visual love letter to the Black community. It’s an ode to our strength, vibrancy, and joy. We have struggled, and yet we are still here, and not only are we here, but we are so much more than the adversity heaped upon us,” director Charlie Buhler says of the single’s matching video. “I am grateful to Robert and the team at Loma Vista for trusting me with such a powerful and important song, and everyone who came together to help bring the concept to life. It was a true labor of love.”
