Miguel now joins the ranks of hip-hop and r’n’b artists who have used their music as a source of therapy, for themselves and for those around them, in an effort to respond to the recent killings of two black men by police officers. Of course, we’re referring to Baton Rouge native and father of five, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, who was shot by a Minnesota police officer while his 4-year daughter was in the backseat, and his fiancee in the passenger seat. These are just two of many we’ve heard about in the past year, propelling the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

This version was started (written/recorded) here in London in my hotel room between the hours of 4am and around 7am when I passed out. I’ll update this song every week until its complete. Please feel free to share.
Stay tuned for a proper CDQ version.
