Amid calls to release his own version of "The Star-Spangled Banner," Quavo dropped a snippet of a new national anthem on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The "Culture National Anthem" takes on the traditional Quavo sound with a relatively sincere tone as images and videos of MLK are interweaved throughout the one-minute clip. The snippet was also shared on Migos' Instagram account, hinting that the whole trio could be in on this one.
Last year, Kentucky native Sean Gray started a petition in an effort to have Quavo featured on a revised version of the national anthem. After the petition accumulated a couple thousand signatures, Quavo was asked how serious he was about his support of Gray's efforts. "It's just a lot going on behind the national anthem," Quavo told TMZ. "I would love to do it, but I wanna do like a 2017 national anthem for both people, for all races, you know what I'm saying? And put it together."
Quavo seemingly doubled down on his desire to make that new national anthem happen.
At the time, Quavo's vision for the updated version of the national anthem was to get "some good musicians and just write something that's very strong and powerful."
