Backed by a five-piece band–including Zaytoven on keytar–Haddon gave a riveting performance of the rocking track that chronicles the debate over wearing masks and taking vaccines in the age of COVID-19.
It’s a deliriously relevant and infectious tune that exudes the hard-bite of Childish Gambino’s “This is America” while offering the optimistic hope that Kendrick Lamar envisions in “Alright.”
“The beautiful thing is that you can’t put Gospel music in a box, and you can’t put Trap music in a box …,”
“He [Zaytoven] has a love for gospel music. I have a love for gospel music and Trap music, believe it or not, and we just brought it together and created something so beautiful that I think everybody’s going to really enjoy it.”Haddon told GMA3 hosts TJ Holmes and Amy Robach when they asked how the two superstars met up.
“Sick World” is the first release from Haddon’s new recording label, Black Own Black Entertainment, which is marketed by Tyscot Records and distributed by The Warner Music Group.
Over the course of his 25-year career, Haddon has harvested two dozen radio hits that include, ten Billboard Top 10 hits and the no. 1 hits, “Open Door Season” and “A Billion People.”
He’s also earned three GRAMMY Award nominations.
