“Covid-19 is on the scene,” Pop growls in his distinctive voice, “the boys and girls can’t stop their world/Grandfather’s dead/Got Trump instead.” The song was co-written with Leron Thomas, who also played trumpet on the track.
“I was moved to write a direct lyric, not something too emotional or deep — more like journalism,” Pop said in an accompanying video. “It was a stopper for me.
