Black Shelton is reacting to the release of a song titled “Minimum Wage” while the American people continue to struggle with the coronavirus epidemic.
The “The Voice Is” coach introduced a new single to NBC’s New Year’s Eve television special with Carson Delini to help in the ring in 2021. The country singer told the host that her fianc Gwen Stephanie helped her brother Todd direct the video.
The artist’s new song has to do with his love for the 51-year-old “Holabeck Girl” singer and is a song in the chorus that makes many people upset while watching the broadcast.
“Girl, your love can make a man feel rich at the minimum wage.”
The fact that the coronavirus epidemic has shut down many businesses and laid off countless Americans has led people to take to Twitter to hang a cow for releasing a song that they consider to be “tone deaf” given the current climate.
“The oddity of hearing millionaire Black Shelton talking about ‘love of minimum wage’ in late 2020 could be lost on his target audience.” One user wrote.
“I like his music but the time for the minimum wage is not excellent. The song feels a little deaf as a lot of people are out of work and struggling. I like to listen to songs that are more personal. I hope he writes more of his own stuff because he’s an incredible songwriter. ” Others wrote In a tweet that was unavailable until Sunday.
Someone else agreed, Writing: “Black Shelton’s” Minimum Wage “song is incredibly deaf in the current state of our country.”
“Please apologize to everyone for your song ‘Minimum Wage’. From what I read you have let a lot of people down at a time when you need hope and charitable songs no more nonsense about when you and Gwen are in love. What an insult to all of us. Boo, ” Added one more candid user.
“What !? @BlackShelt is the #minimum wage for real too? Yes of course @gwenstefani can be a dude at the minimum wage. She’s a millionaire. Are you working at a home depot now or something? Do I have to pay rent?” Someone else concluded.
The song has not yet been fully released and Shelton has not publicly commented on the clash on social media.
