One of the most powerful protest songs that I have heard yet, DWY delivers a raw, intense and hugely emotive piece of alternative soul and RnB with lyricism that commands your ears to listen.
“I wrote ‘Black Boy’ to make an anthem for people who look like me. Everyday Iʼm bombarded with images and videos of slain young black men and women and it makes me mad, it makes me cry and I just needed to express those feelings. We lose them so early into their lives. Weʼve lost potential, weʼve lost part of our future. Theres a pain you see in the eyes of a mother when they lose a child, its a pain I canʼt yet begin to understand but I wanted to make a record to say I see you, and Iʼm here with you in spirit.”
