The beautiful and incredibly talented, Alicia Keys is back. Today the songstress returns with a brand new single, speaking about the societal issues going on around the world today. This time Ms. Keys puts together another impressive effort entitled “Perfect Way To Die.” The track was inspired by the innocent black lives being taken, and the track also serves as the latest single from Alicia’s upcoming album, ALICIA. The track comes from a mother’s point of view for those who have lost their children to senseless violence. Along the way, Alicia touches on police brutality while also speaking on the reality of life in the streets. She opened up about the track recently.
Ms. Keys stated: “I have felt called by music like I never have before.” She went on to add, “I have been following its lead. It has led me to the song ‘A Perfect Way to Die.’ The song title is so powerful and heartbreaking because WE are heartbroken by so many who have died unjustly. Of course, there is NO perfect way to die. That phrase doesn’t even make sense, just like it doesn’t make sense that there are so many innocent lives that should not have been taken from us due to the destructive culture of police violence. Sometimes I don’t have the words, and music is the only thing that can speak. I hope this speaks to you. I hope one day this song won’t be so relevant. Let’s NEVER stop fighting for justice.”
The track is just the latest from Alicia and quite a powerful one at that. Take a few minutes from your busy day and check out the new single in the stream below. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for much more from Alicia Keys coming very soon.
