Trey Songz vents with his voice on new song ‘2020 Riots: How Many Times.’
The impassioned track sees the R&B star shine light on the injustices faced in the Black community at the hands of police brutality and institutionalized racism.
Speaking on the release, Songz explained:
“Three or four nights ago I woke up in the middle of my sleep…I couldn’t sleep. My chest was hurting. I got up and called my producer, Troy Taylor and I said “We’ve got to make music that really touches the soul, that really addresses what the world is feeling right now. Especially our people. So we came up with ‘2020 Riots: How Many Times’.” With the words in this song I just wanted to speak to everyone’s hearts and acknowledge the pain and anguish everyone is going through right now. I know this ain’t usually my message and you’re not used to hearing this from me, but this is the person I’ve always been.”
Proceeds from sales will go directly towards the Black Lives Matter and the Community Justice Exchange’s National Bail Fund Network.
