Beyonce is back — and getting political — in the video for new single "Formation."

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (February 8) to perform their latest tune — “White Privilege II.”

The Seattle duo were joined by singer Jamila Woods and spoken word poets Nikkita Oliver and Danez Smith for the stirring rendition, as frontman Macklemore injected honest emotion into a song that has caused quite the conversation (and redundant explanations to artists like Iggy Azalea) due to its topics on Black Lives Matter, racial inequality and appropriation.

Look out for the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ sophomore album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made on February 26, and get into their Colbert performance up top.
