Hamilton discussed his new song “Mercy” featuring activist Tamika Mallory which was released yesterday (12-11-20) during a recent Zoom chat with EURweb correspondent Anasia Obioha.

“Mercy is a song that speaks from a vulnerable man – not a weak man but a vulnerable man who acknowledges the struggles and the things placed on him that are kind of heavy.  Sometimes people tend to judge him and ridicule him not knowing what he’s dealing with,” Hamilton shared. “Not only is he dealing with being a black man in America but he’s dealing with being a father and sometimes a husband and a provider. Just having a little mercy can go along way and take some of the stress off of his back so he can perform to his full ability.”

The star also revealed that he and Jermaine Dupri are working on a joint project – his 10th album.

Dupri had originally signed Hamilton to So So Def back in the early ’00s and helped release his second and best-known album “Comin’ From Where I’m From.”
