Pusha T Performs Powerful New Song "Sunshine" on 'The Daily Show'

Becoming the president of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music hasn't done anything but fuel Pusha T's solo artist fire. As we near the Dec. 18 of his King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude album—the first of two upcoming full-lengths—we're getting a new song every few days. On Tuesday night (Dec. 15) he hit The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to debut "Sunshine," a track that's darker than its title suggests.

With a reference to the death of Freddie Gray and bars like "And so it goes, every truth don’t get told / All these cops get cleared, and lives are stole" and "Funeral flowers, every 28 hours / Being laid over ours," it's a sobering song performed with classic Push vigor.

Jill Scott sings the hook, as well as the bridge, which goes like this:

"It’s more and more and more than Baltimore
From shore to shore, oh lord
Patience torn, patience gone, oh lord"

We're fiending for the album harder than ever. Watch Pusha T before another new track, "Crutches, Crosses, Caskets," here:
