Joy Oladokun released a new song, “Power.” The anthem is set to land on the soundtrack for the film Loudmouth, a documentary tracing “the life and battles” of Reverend Al Sharpton.

Executive-produced by John Legend and directed by Josh Alexander, Loudmouth is set to arrive in theaters on December 9 and will begin streaming on Amazon and Apple TV on January 13, 2023. Oladokun’s stirring single “Power” soundtracks the end credits.

A press release further detailed the song:

“Power” illuminates the power of Oladokun’s songcraft and delivery. Inspired by Reverend Al Sharpton’s historic journey crusading for Civil Rights, Oladokun wrote this potent anthem alone specifically for the film. It stretches from moments of vulnerability into a gospel-style crescendo with a skyscraping chorus meant as a call-to-action, “Power, help me use it. All of the people got it.”
