  • Artist: K'NAAN
  • Track: Bulletproof Pride
  • Producer: Brian “Sweetwesty” West, Jon Levine & Chuck Harmony
  • Album: Country, God, or the Girl

As internationally-known pop megastars and prominent commentators on world politics, it was inevitable that K'NAAN and Bono would eventually find themselves on a record together. On album standout and future single Bulletproof Pride, the collaboration finally happens, and the result sounds just as epic as devotees of either artist would expect. Over a soaring instrumental by Brian “Sweetywesty” West, Jon Levine and Chuck Harmony, the Somali-Canadian recording artist sings verses seemingly dedicated to a past love, but seeded with imagery evoking Third World struggles. The U2 frontman joins K'NAAN on the back, providing a vocal counterpoint on the bridge as well as assisting on the record's anthemic chorus. Released this past Tuesday via A&M/Octane, Country, God or the Girl is available now in stores and online.
