Melanie Fiona addresses domestic abuse, rape and police brutality in new video…


melMelanie Fiona just released the video for her new song, I tried off the upcoming album Awake. In it she focuses on social ills like domestic abuse, rape and police brutality. The singer had this to say about the video to TheYBF:

“It is important for me to channel the ideas and concepts I am passionate about into my music and my art… As an artist with a social platform, I feel it is my responsibility to do so. The video for ‘I Tried’ is a tribute to the fight in which we all witness and experience both internally and externally in the world daily. The conversation of important issues should not end when we turn the TV off. I hope this visual sparks emotion, thought, dialogue, reflection, and ultimately, positive change,”
