Calvin Harris and Benny Blanco have released “I Found You/Nilda’s Story,” a rework of their November jam, “I Found You.”
The track, which features Miguel on vocals, was released alongside a moving video. It traces, documentary-style, the journey of Nilda and her son Keyden, immigrants who escaped their native Honduras to the United States, only to be arrested and separated at the border.
Harris and Blanco strip down their original, upbeat dance tune to match the heart-breaking video and the song’s lyrics take on a powerful new meaning. “I’ve traveled many roads / And I know what road to choose / Now my world is never changing / If there’s anything I can do” Miguel sings, taking over from Harris, who provided vocals on the original version.
The song and video are part of the While They Wait campaign, a joint effort by the Brooklyn Defenders Services, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, and the American Civil Liberties Union to “raise awareness and support for immigrants.”
