PERFECT WAY TO DIE
A few days ago, I posted this Alicia Keys new song ‘Perfect Way to Die’. Her initial video only included the lyrics. Here we have the actual filming of her performance.
It’s a haunting song that woefully applies to the American reality we are going through after George Floyd’s murder, at the hands of Minneapolis Police.
This murder unsurfaced and brought to the forefront all the many others who had lost their lives in this fashion: at the hands of the cops!!
Playing a grand piano in the middle of an empty city street, Alicia Keys performed her new song “Perfect Way to Die” at the 2020 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28).
The song is written from the perspective of a mother who’s watched her child become yet another fatality of systemic racism and police brutality in America.
After singing the gently heartbreaking ballad, Keys stepped back from the piano and took a knee in protest. The camera pulled back to reveal the names of many lost Black lives written in chalk on the street.
