“Baltimore,” the song Prince recorded to honor the nationwide protests following the deaths of Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown, has arrived. The throwback jam is the best kind of track: a funky banger that also makes a loud cry for tolerance, equal rights, and justice. Literally: “If there ain’t no justice, then there ain’t no peace,” Prince and 3rdeyegirl chant throughout. Another key lyric: “Does anybody hear us pray for Michael Brown and Freddie Gray?”
Listen below, and then keep listening to “Baltimore” all summer. Prince will likely perform the track during his Rally 4 Peace concert in Baltimore on Sunday.
