Prince dropped his new protest song about Freddie Gray & Baltimore to the public this past Saturday (5.9.2015).
The track (featuring singer Eryn Allen Kane), simply titled “Baltimore“, features the upbeat, funky instrumentals that we’ve come to know from Prince mixed with direct lyrics that touch on recent current events in America without hesitation.
“Does anybody hear us pray for Michael Brown & Freddie Gray???”
The release of “Baltimore” came the day before the legendary artist’s performance at Sunday’s “Rally 4 Peace” benefit concert in Baltimore, which streamed exclusively on Jay-Z’s new streaming music service, Tidal.
