Prince wants 2 make sure U haven’t forgotten what happened 2 Baltimore.
Tuesday Prince released a docu-style music video for “Baltimore,” the protest song he wrote in honor of Freddie Gray and the good people of the Charm City.
Directed by Ralston Smith, the video opens with a montage of newspaper headlines and news footage of the rallies and protests that followed the death of Gray at the hands of the Baltimore police force.
The video was posted by up-and-coming talent Eryn Allen Kane, who happens to be the mystery woman on the bright and soaring backing vocals of the track. Today Kane called the joint project a “privilege” and spoke of the importance of making a piece truly “for the people.”
