Black M - Sound Music, France

In 2016, France was preparing to celebrate the centenary of the Battle of Verdun. French rapper, Black M, was to perform as part of the anniversary celebrations. Leaders of the Far Right felt that as a French citizen of Guinea descent, his performance would be inappropriate and disrespectful to the memory of the soldiers. Instead of directly addressing the politicians, Black M responded with a song of love for his country, defying all of the haters. The song received over 50 million views on YouTube, 10 million listeners on streaming services and over 674 million Twitter impressions for #Jesuischezmoi.
