Over the weekend, Chance the Rapper along with two of SNL’s stars performed a 90’s- style R&B breakup song called, “Come Back, Barack.”
The title is self-explanatory, but in the Boys II Men, Jodeci feel type of song, the group that was dubbed De-Von-Tre had the dapper 90s look style along with the sound and the spoken word interludes we heard in the 1990’s R&B songs.
“And every night, I turn the TV on and cry, I say, why, I feel like we’re all gonna die
So come back, Barack,” the trio sang. “We didn’t know what we had. Now things are looking bad, like nuclear bad.”
The trio showed pictures of what the Obama family have been doing since his presidency ended like Obama hang gliding and taking Malia to college.
“You know it’s been a long time, Barack. Almost as long as since a guy talked over a record like this Why would you leave us? Oh, ’cause you had to? Because of the constitution? But you can come back right? Oh, you can’t? ‘Cause that would undermine the very institutes that we’re barely hold on to as it is? I see. I guess we stuck with this due for a while then.”
It says, “Maybe you can come back and make a speech. How much would that cost? For real? Oh no we definitely can’t afford that. So I’m just getting rained on for nothing. That’s interesting. Well you enjoy your retirement, homie.”
“Michelle could run? I’d vote for Joe Biden.
Since Saturday, people took to social media asking for the “Come Back, Barack” to be put on iTunes, Spotify or Apple music, or somewhere they can purchase the song.
Who’s purchasing the song if it’s made available?
