Logic has released the ultimate teaser for his upcoming album, titled "Everybody," that is coming out next month. The new music video "Black Spiderman," a song that is included on his new album, attempts to unite a severely fragmented US, but not in the traditional manner.

The video opens with Logic leading a group of gospel singers through a suburban town, accompanied by Damian Lemar Hudson who plays the piano. In the end, Logic is seen shaking a leg with a troupe of dancers, Pitchfork reports.

The video also includes some bizarre elements like a pair of cats smoking a joint, as they discuss what the world would be like if some of the prominent figures were to be African-American. Nevertheless, the lyrics of the rap song are meaningful and directly many of the issues plaguing America in the present times, predominantly racism. It also brings out the constant dilemma of the Maryland rapper who has the first-hand experience of belonging from a mixed race.

"I ain't ashamed to be white, I ain't ashamed to be black/I ain't ashamed of my beautiful Mexican wife as a matter of fact," Logic sings as he locks lips with Jessica Andrea, Complex reports. The rapper takes the issue of racism further by announcing, "SpiderMan should be black, I vote for Glover instead."

"Black Spiderman" is the second music track to be released from "Everybody," the first one being its title track. Some of the guest stars who make an appearance in the album are Juicy J, Khalid, Killer Mike, Alessia Cara, Black Thought and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Khalid and Juicy J have also made cameos in Logic's music video.

"Everybody" can be preordered on iTunes, while the album drops on May 5. Meanwhile, check out the new music video for "Black Spiderman" below.
