John Legend Wants Americans to Get Along in 'Penthouse Floor' Music Video - Watch Now!

John Legend‘s new “Penthouse Floor” video has a powerful message about inclusion and getting along.

In the video featuring Chance the Rapper, the 38-year-old plays a waiter at an upscale hotel restaurant with all white patrons, including one wearing a red “Make It Great” hat – a nod to Donald Trump‘s “Make America Great Again” hats.

Outside of the restaurant, rallies flood the streets with protestors holding “Black Lives Matter” and “The Future is Female” signs.

John then throws a party in the Presidential Suite of the hotel for all the workers and protestors, but then is greeted by the white diners – which he allows in for the party.

Chance the Rapper Debuts New Unreleased Song on 'The Late Show' - Watch Here!

Chance the Rapper made his return to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday evening (September 25) and took the opportunity to debut a brand new song.

The 24-year-old Grammy-winning entertainer rapped three verses about fatherhood, life’s changes, and first world problems while accompanied by Daniel Caesar, a choir, and additional musicians, including longtime collaborator Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal.

Chance revealed to Stephen that he had written the song two days before the performance.

“I was gonna do ‘Grown Ass Kid,’ an unreleased song from Coloring Book, and then I called you guys on Saturday and said, I can’t do ‘Grown Ass Kid’ anymore for reasons I don’t want to talk about. We had to come up with a song in a matter of days and I wanted to do something fresh,” Chance said.

“I’ve been in the studio a lot lately; I’ve been cooking up some yammers like this,” Chance added. “They’re honestly great. I premiered ‘Angels,’ the first new song off Coloring Book, here, so I was like, why not do another new song for you guys here tonight?”
