K’naan live: ‘Take a Minute’

K’naan told us that the song “Take a Minute” is one of those songs that people always react to when he performs live.

“Whenever we play it, I just — I don’t know how people even know it, because it’s not a song that has a story.  “Take a Minute” is not a single; it’s just a song.  I think it’s like number 12 in the album, you know?  But literally, everybody in the audience always sings this song at the top of their lungs. “

    K’naan just sings a truth that people are so tired about. It is refreshing. It took a minute for the song yet I wonder how long it really took to get the words “right.” Nice.
