Divine Sorrow - Wyclef featuring Avicii

I've been wanting to post this one for awhile.  After a lengthy absence from the music world, Wyclef Jean is back and I'm loving it.  This is the lead single off of his upcoming seventh album, and it features the talents of Swedish deejay/producer extraordinaire Avicii.  The song was commissioned by the Coca Cola company for its Share the Sound for an AIDS Free Generation campaign, which raises awareness and monies to help fight the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa.  

We will never, we will never have a change of mind
We belong together
We will never, we will never, be the weary kind
We sing our sorrows away
We sing our sorrows away
We sing our sorrows away

Divine Sorrow is a mid tempo shot of inspirational music, and though it may take a couple of listens for it to sink in, it will eventually do so.  The sound is clearly a more mature Wyclef, both vocally and lyrically, and Avicii's contribution works well.  I invite you to click play below and check it out...
