Leon Bridges Appears On ‘Corden’ With Terrace Martin & Robert Glasper
Leon Bridges was among the guests on Thursday’s episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden. Bridges spoke with Corden before the show aired a performance of Leon’s recent single “Sweeter” in which the Fort Worth, Texas based musician was joined by a band that included Terrace Martin and Robert Glasper.
“I’m just heartbroken. I’m tired of seeing unarmed black men die at the hands of police,” Bridges said when James Corden asked him about the current situation in the country. “But at the same time, I’m still optimistic. It’s really refreshing to see people all over the world wake up the racism and injustice that’s embedded in America.”
Corden went on to ask Bridges about the history of “Sweeter,” a song Leon released as a single a few weeks ago. “We worked on this song last year but as you see it’s a perpetual narrative,” Bridges explained. “I would say George Floyd was a tipping point for me. Everything in me wanted to be there in that moment with him and I feel like my role is to let my music reflect my heart. It was important to release that song now.”
