With the fight against systemic racism still ongoing, many artists have mobilized to use their platform for the good of the cause. Yesterday, T-Pain stepped forward to lead the way, as he has done for over a decade in the game. The legendary singer slash rapper has officially stepped up with a new anthem called “Get Up,” a rallying cry bolstered by a powerful spoken word introduction.

Boasting infectious electronic elements, the track keeps a steady beat going as Pain’s layered harmonies rise. “Long as my heart beatin’ and I’m breathin’ air, I’ll fight for me, you decide, anytime, anywhere,” he sings, in the opening verse. “And I will never back down from it, That’s not coming, I just attack from the front.” While the lyrics are a little on the general side, when paired with the intro’s message it’s hard not to read this one as a protest anthem — and a groovy one at that. And for those who aren’t interested in applying a sociopolitical lens, there remains plenty to enjoy thanks to an inspired performance from Teddy Pendergrass.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Get up (Ooh)
Get up (Ayy)
Get up
Get up
Hmm, hmm-hmm, hmm
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm, get up (Yeah, woo, uh)
Uh (Yeah)

[Verse 1]
Long as my heart beatin’ and I’m breathin’ air
I’ll fight for me, you decide, anytime, anywhere
And I will never back down from it (From it)
That’s not comin’, I just attack from the front
And don’t ask questions or nothin’, do you hear?
Yeah

[Chorus]
Yeah (Woo)
Oh, no, I can’t stop now (Stop now)
I gave it my all and it still ain’t enough (Still ain’t enough)
Everybody gettin’ knocked down (Knocked down)
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up (Yeah, yeah, yeah, ah)
Get up there, get up now
Get up there, get up (Uh)
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up
Get up

[Post-Chorus]
Hmm, hmm-hmm, hmm
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm
Get up
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up (Get up)
Hmm, hmm-hmm, hmm
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm
Get up

[Verse 2]
Long as I got somethin’ that I’m fightin’ for
Even if you don’t believe, you won’t see me stayin’ down on the floor (Ha)
‘Cause I will never back down to it (To it)
That sounds stupid, you better act like you knew it
Don’t ask if I’ma do it, I’m here
Ain’t I? Yeah, oh no, ooh woah, oh

[Chorus]
Oh, no, I can’t stop now (Stop now)
I gave it my all and it still ain’t enough (Still ain’t enough)
Everybody gettin’ knocked down (Knocked down)
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up (Yeah, yeah, yeah, ah)
Get up there, get up now
Get up there, get up (Woo)
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up
Get up

[Post-Chorus]
Hmm, hmm-hmm, hmm
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm
Get up
The only thing that matters is what you gon’ do when you get up (Get up)
Hmm, hmm-hmm, hmm
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm
Get up,
