Gary Clark Jr. has tagged The Roots for a remix of “This Land,” debuted during the blues rock musician’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. While the remix is around 30 seconds shorter than the original, the revamped track does feature an additional verse from The Roots co-founder Black Thought.

Both his 2019 album, This Land, and the single just won Clark Jr. three GRAMMY wins for Best Contemporary Blues Album, Best Rock Performance, and Best Rock Song, along with a nomination for Best Music Video. In a previous interview with Rolling Stone, the Austin-born musician revealed that the song was written based on a “brutally honest account” of the racism he grew up enduring in the South.

Elsewhere in music, Eminem and Mac Miller both debut in the top 5 of this week’s Billboard 200.
