The Hip Hop Caucus recently selected the gold-selling artist Eric Bellinger to perform their 2022 Respect My Vote! midterm campaign theme song.
The aptly-titled song, “Speak Up,” is Bellinger encouraging individuals to go vote, supporting the Hip Hop Caucus’ campaign to drive positive change through the power of using your voice.
Speaking on the collaboration with Hip Hop Caucus, Bellinger said, “The song, like the work of the Hip Hop Caucus, represents what we should be doing now to overcome the hardships and obstacles our community deals with every day. As an artist, using music to share a message is powerful, and I am so thankful to do my part to ensure folks in our community nationwide head to the polls to vote.”

Ever since Bellinger’s first actual album New Light gained a 2022 Best Progressive R&B Album nod, he’s been invincible. Following the nomination, the LP achieved recognition on Rated R&B’s Best R&B Albums of 2021 list.
He continued its promotional run with a presence on daytime television (The Kelly Clarkson Show) and R&B radio attraction for “What About Us” featuring Sevyn Streeter.
On March 11, Bellinger will kick off his Vibes on Vibes Tour. Sammie will be joining him as a co-headliner.
