Today’s delicious song of the day, and also the first Eat This Song of the Day for 2021, comes from Los Angeles-based Zimbabwean-American artist Shungudzo!

The song is titled “It’s a good day (to fight the system)” and it comes off the release of Shungudzo’s three-track EP, ‘I (motsi)‘, which is out now via the usual digital streaming platforms: Spotify and Soundcloud.

Shungudzo wrote this song as a way to express that, although the fight for justice and equality people are in can feel heavy at times, what people are striving for — what people around the world are striving for — is joy.

Shungudzo explains, “The joy of a life whose fullest potential can be reached without hitting systemic roadblocks. The joy I feel seeing people stand up to the systems that oppress them. The joy of the idea that future generations won’t have to fight the same fights we’re fighting — if we keep fighting. I try to remember this joy every time things get heavy again, and I hope this song brings joy to you.”

This is such a sweet song, that not only touches on the topic of joyfulness, “It’s a good day (to fight the system)” showcases Shungudzo’s impeccable use of timely lyrics and soothing instrumentals to transport you into the world she wants to share with you.
