Common & John Legend Win Golden Globe For "Selma" Song "Glory"
Accepting the award with some words that echo his lyrics on the song, Common said, "Now is our time to change the world. Selma is now."
In the song itself, the veteran Chicago icon delivers a similar line: "Selma is now for every man, woman, and child / Even Jesus got his crown in front of a crowd," he raps, "They marched with the torch, we gon' run with it now / Never look back we done gone hundreds of miles."
Both artists took to social media after the win to celebrate with fans and Jay Z even acknowledged the achievement himself via his rarely-used Twitter account.
