If he hadn’t just worked with Kanye West, we’d say we were surprised to see Paul McCartney featured on a rap song.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver officially released a video for his Food Revolution Day anthem a rap song co-written by Ed Sheeran and featuring the Beatles legend. Ed helped compose the song’s music, and Paul sings the chorus and strums guitar on the track. Meanwhile, Jamie and celebrity guests like Hugh Jackman show off their rapping skills.
The tune is part of a viral campaign ahead of tomorrow’s Food Revolution Day, which seeks to promote healthier diets for youngsters around the world.
“Here it is guys! I am honestly lost for words and so i’ll let this video do all the talking,” Jamie posted on Facebook, along with the video. “Wherever you are in the world Watch it. Sign It. Share It.”
The focus of the 2015 Food Revolution Day initiative is to get people around the world to sign a petition declaring that “it’s a child’s human right to have practical food education in school.”
Jamie’s petition is posted now on Change.org. “It’s essential that we arm future generations with the life skills they urgently need in order to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives,” the chef writes on the petition site. “I passionately believe this is every child’s human right and I hope you agree.”
