Prince will share his feelings on the unrest in Baltimore in the way he knows best — in song.
The legendary artist has recorded a “tribute to all of the people of the city of Baltimore,” a spokesperson tells Billboard. Though release plans haven’t been announced, it’s understood the track will address Freddie Gray’s death in Baltimore police custody, and the socio/political issues around the nation following a spate of killings of young black men.
Prince is the latest in a long line of artists who’ve taken a stand over the murder of African-Americans. The likes of Joey Bada$$, Future Islands, Beyonce and The Game have led tributes and called for action following the deaths of Gray and others before him.
