What a line up in this track. I absolutely love spoken word and especially when it's done in music. In this case it's a perfect combo of spoken word and Alex Isley singing. The song has been released to honor the Black History Month and this is perfection. Check out the video below to dive deeper into the lyrics.

The song is about my love for Black people—everything that they are, everything that they do, their hair, the little girls, Jazzfest. All the beautiful things about us and the things that we like to cover up with pain, laughter, food and music, the family secrets, all of it. The way we look at other Black people that have so-called ‘made it,’ like Cicely Tyson and Serena Williams and Tyler Perry. It’s an ode to Black people.
