Protests have been going on across America since the death of George Floyd, though now, they have extended beyond America and even North America. The protests in Los Angeles yesterday attracted over 50K people with YG teaming up with BLM to make the peaceful protest happen. This also attracted many celebrities including NBA players like Demar Derozan and hip-hop royalty, like Kendrick Lamar.
Usher and Trey Songz also joined the march on bicycles with Black Rides For Black Lives. Riding through the streets of Los Angeles, Usher’s heard leading the “No Justice No Peace” chant while Trey Songz films and takes Usher’s lead. “Today was dope‼️ too many people to @ that came out, the energy was so positive and high,” Trey Songz captioned the post.
Over the weekend, Trey Songz also released a moving new single titled, “2020 Riots: How Many Times.” Trey’s song initially debuted on DJ D-Nice’s IG Live Session and explained the song a few days later.
“Three or four nights ago I woke up in the middle of my sleep…I couldn’t sleep. My chest was hurting,” he said. “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.”
