The Universe Is Watching Us

Stevie Wonder-Odda New times are running for Stevie Wonder in this 2020. It seems that he has overcome his health problems with the kidney transplant to which he was subjected, he appears relaxed with his children Kailand and Mandla Morris on the cover of Odda magazine -biannual culture magazine and contemporary fashion- of the month of September 2020. He can also be seen active and excited in communications calling for a social change. "The Universe Is Watching Us" Stevie Wonder tells us, comparing life to a song that's out of sync, wondering if we can feel how life is out of tune.

On the other hand, his musical career is rewarded once again with the appearance of several of his albums among the list of the 500 best albums of all time that The Rolling Stone magazine has updated this September 2020. "Songs In The Key Of Life" ranks a creditable fourth on a list that tops another Motown great, Marvin Gaye.

The circle closes with the surprising news that he leaves the music label where he has been all his life -Motown- and publishes two new songs under this own label -So What the Fuss Music- distributed by Republic Records of the Universal group. One of them bears the title of "Where Is Our Love Song", which includes Grammy Award-winning guitarist Gary Clark Jr., whose proceeds will go to Feeding America in their fight against poverty. Relates that started writing it when he was 18 years old, and suddenly this year came "all the confusion, all the hate, the east versus west, left versus right: a heartbreak … a lot of confusion.". For the other song, "Can't Put It In the Hands of Fate" has the participation of the rappers Busta Rhymes, Rapsody, Cordae and Chika. Originally the song was about a relationship, but he adjusted the lyrics after think about where we are in the world and how this is the most crucial moment "Change is right now. We can't put it into the hands of fate. Ain't nobody got time to wait," he said. “We can't put it the hands of fate finding a cure for this dreadful virus. We got to get on our knees and pray or whatever you do. I want everyone to be well, I don't care what colour you are because actually, I don't see your colour. You see colour, don't act like you don't see colour, you do. But I don't see your visual colour. But I do feel your soul. I do feel your spirit. I see the colour of your spirit and soul, and I'm seeing too many spirits and souls that are not about the love that we're supposed to have and feel for one another.”. he does not close the possibility in the future of continuing to publish with Motown, but it reveals the publication of an EP and his most complete project Through the Eyes Of Wonder.

The world is in turmoil, bleeding from instability and social inequalities, from a global pandemic that is devouring the life to which we have settled. We need to change, improve our attitude towards nature to prevent us from reaching an irreversible collapse. As you could say using one of his emblematic songs, Love's In Need of Stevie Today, and luckily Stevie Wonder is recovered when we need him most, but we all have to do our part so that this life is not out of tune.
