Speaking with HITS Daily Double, the country crooner, 26, talked about his mixed background and reflected on how it affects his day to day life amid the social unrest happening across the globe with the Black Lives Matter movement.

It just seems like all his bars are just like, every other bar, every other song is ‘ I ’ m black. Oh, I ’ m half-black and half-white.’ Still, he noted how seriously he views the topic a few years back in a verified annotation on “Mixed Feelings”: He’s hardly the only rapper to broach the subject of biracial identity .

Brown knows that the issues he faces now will later be faced by Kingsley Rose — his 9-month-old daughter with wife Katelyn — and says he's "glad" she won't have memories of this time in the world once she's older.

"2020's been tough in general. I'm glad my daughter doesn't know what's going on, and she's not going to remember," Brown said. "Having a biracial daughter, I have a lot of people coming at me, asking, 'How are you going to explain to her when she's pulled over?' and 'What are you going to tell her about the difference between her and her white friends?'"

"We will never find peace until everybody understands. You need to have understanding, not just people yelling at each other, wanting to be right. Then no one wins, and people just get angrier on both sides."

Kane also reflected on why he released his song, "Worldwide Beautiful," back in June amid the social unrest happening across the globe.

Sharing that he had the song "for over a year" and was saving it for his album, Brown revealed that the protests surrounding George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery inspired him to put the track out early instead.

Noting that everyone in the media and online, including his family, "were just shouting and no one was listening," he added, "That wasn’t going to solve anything, it was just making it worse," so he released the song with hopes of inspiring change.

According to the outlet, Brown, his manager Martha Earls and Sony Nashville head Randy Goodman knew there would be pushback when they released the song, but they did it anyway in an effort to inspire people of all different backgrounds to come together.

Written by Brown alongside Shy Carter, Ryan Hurd and Jordan Schmidt, the song advocates for social justice and equality, with all proceeds from the song going to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

"We figured if just Jordan and Ryan wrote it, or just Shy and I wrote it, it would've been one thing," Brown explained. "But together, this is what I'm talking about. There's two sides to everything that's going on, different ways of looking at all of this. The trouble is, everybody is right, right where they are, but it doesn't move you any closer together. We need to come together."
