《單曲》Rihanna - American Oxygen


Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa!

  美國 R&B 天后 Rihanna 目前正在錄製全新第八張專輯,送上將收錄其中的中板單曲「American Oxygen」,創作靈感啟發自 1984 年美國搖滾巨星「工人皇帝」 Bruce Springsteen 的專輯經典同名曲「Born in the U.S.A.」,找來 Alex da Kid 與 Kanye West 共同製作,MV 由 Darren Craig 執導,充滿政治色彩,包含許多美國歷史上的影像記錄片段,如非法移民、警察暴力、9/11 事件、佔領華爾街和非裔美國人民權運動,另外還有歐巴馬總統就職典禮、阿波羅 11 號登月壯舉以及自由女神像等,煙火與炸彈、慶祝與抗議,諷刺意味濃厚。

You can be anything at all

  對於人生,我們所追求與歌頌的夢想,真的有如表面般光鮮亮麗,還是只是所謂被洗腦與灌輸的思想價值。自由平等的假象、錯綜複雜的利益糾葛;如今所享有的一切,不知是前人犧牲多少代價才換來的。新世代要做出改變,去開創嶄新的未來,不從歷史中汲取教訓,注定重蹈覆轍。透過音樂和影像,讓人重新省思美國夢的背後意義!

[Chorus: ]
Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, whoa
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen

[Hook: ]
American oxygen, whoa
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American Oxygen

[Verse 1: ]
Oh say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young girl, hustlin'
On the other side of the ocean
You can be anything at all
America, America (America, America)
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

[Chorus]
[Hook 2x]

[Verse 2:]
Oh say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young boy, hustlin'
Tryna get the wheels in motion
But he can be anything at all
America, America (America, America)
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

[Chorus]

[Bridge: 4x]
This is the new America
We are the new America

[Chorus]
[Hook 2x]
[Bridge 2x]
