It’s been over three years since the death of George Floyd. The injustices
surrounding his murder, at the hands of police, sparked massive protests
worldwide. It once again put a terrifying spotlight on racism and inequality which

Garnering attention since its release, the single has now charted in the Top 30 on

This song acts as an artistic tool to galvanize humanity to combat police brutality. In
the accompanying visual, U’Kno and Nino visually encapsulate the serious tone
behind the song’s message with cinematic, black-and-white visuals. Understanding
