American Oxygen Letra

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, oh
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen
American oxygen, whoa
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen

Oh say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young girl, hustlin'
On the other side of the ocean
You can be anything at all
In America, America
(America, America)
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, oh
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen
American oxygen, whoa
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen

Oh say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young boy, hustlin'
Tryna' get the wheels in motion
But he can be anything at all
In America, America
(America, America)
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, oh
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen

This is the new America
We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America

This is the new America
We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, whoa
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, oh
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen
American oxygen, whoa
Breathe in, this feeling
American, american oxygen

This is the new America
We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America

Sobre American Oxygen

  • El 4 de Abril de 2015 Rihanna interpretó "American Oxygen" en vivo durante el "March Madness Festival" antes de lanzarla exclusivamente a través del servicio de transmisión de Tidal de Jay-Z un día después, el 5 de abril. El lanzamiento estuvo acompañado de un video bastante político que muestra varias escenas icónicas de la historia de Estados Unidos, algunas controvertidas, incluidas imágenes de las recientes protestas en torno a las muertes de Michael Brown y Eric Garner.

    Sam Harris, co-escritor de "Oxygen" y miembro de la banda X Ambassadors , cita que le tomó casi un año escribir "American Oxygen". "Este país es genial y tiene el potencial de ser algo realmente increíble, pero hay muchos problemas que no reconocemos y es importante aclarar ambas cosas".
