Under her Spike Tee moniker, Teyana Taylor self-directs a gripping music video for her newest song, ‘Still.’
Lifted as a tribute to victims of police brutality including Emmett Till, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and more, Taylor took to Instagram Wednesday (September 2) to trumpet the clip’s arrival and speak about the inspiration behind it.
“We are STILL emotional. We STILL keep fighting for love, justice. Yet we STILL keep losing our beautiful black lives. Where’s our healing? #STILL official video out now! I shot this video a few months ago & its crazy how to this day our cry for love is STILL so relevant today and plans to be for a very long time smh!WE DEMAND CHANGE!!! There wasn’t one day that went by in the editing room that I didn’t shed a tear. Smh. This project means so much to me and I’m honored to finally be able to share with you. Thank you to everyone Involved.”
‘Still’ is featured on Taylor’s latest LP, ‘The Album,’ which hit stores in June. Click here to stream.
