Stevie Wonder held a virtual press conference on Tuesday (Oct. 13) during which he said, "I'm going to do something today I've never done before." He then made three major announcements.
First, the 70-year-old legend -- who has spent his entire career on Motown -- revealed he has partnered with Republic Records to launch his own imprint, So What the Fuss Music. He remains within the Universal Music Group family. Additionally, Wonder revealed he's releasing two new songs today: "Can’t Put It in The Hands of Fate,” featuring Rapsody, Cordae, Chika, and Busta Rhymes, and “Where Is Our Love Song,” featuring Gary Clark Jr. All of the proceeds from the latter single will benefit Feeding America.
Last summer, Wonder revealed during London's BST Festival that he would be taking a break from performing to undergo a kidney transplant. I’m all good, I’m all good, all good," he assured at the time. "I have a donor and it’s all good." He successfully had the transplant in Dec. 2019, and until today has been on hiatus.
