LISTEN: Alicia Keys – ‘Perfect Way To Die’

Alicia Keys has released a haunting tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement in her latest single Perfect Way To Die. With a title that says it all, the singer uses her vivid lyricism to call out “the system of racism that looks at Black life as unworthy.” Incorporating skeletal piano melodies and Keys’ impassioned vocals, the song is written from the perspective of a mother whose child has been murdered at the hands of racism. It is sure to leave you in tears.
