about

I don’t want to take any attention away from the very powerful shifts that are going on in the world, particularly the #blacklivesmatter movement and the revolts against police brutality. Today, the “running” remix was released. As this song was already scheduled a month in advance, and since my intentions with music have always revolved around healing, I’ve made sure to adjust and align my purpose with the sense of urgency felt right now in the community.

I wrote “running” a year ago, in an attempt to encapsulate my connectedness to the world around me. I’ve been aware of my privilege for some time, as I’ve recognized that the love and opportunity I’ve grown up with isn’t guaranteed, but a blessing that I’m appreciative of. In the last couple of years, I’ve been moving with that in mind, and I’ve intentionally shared the light that has graced my being with others through music. A year since writing “running”, it’s become clearer than ever that my privilege and my blessings are highly dependent on my race. And so, as I continue to heal my(self) through writing and music and hope that the listeners are affected positively through the intent of my words and sounds, I WANT TO EXTEND THE INTANGIBLE IMPACT OF THIS SONG INTO THE PHYSICAL PLANE BY DONATING 50% OF MY REVENUE FROM STREAMS + PURCHASES FOR THIS “RUNNING” REMIX TO A DIFFERENT BLACK ORGANIZATION/ANTI-RACIST CHARITY EVERY MONTH, IN PERPETUITY.

This systemic issue has existed for too long and will continue to exist unless we work together.
By continuing to contribute musically and by giving back to the community that has welcomed me and blessed me with my career, it will be my responsibility to stay aware and ensure that the funds accumulated are allocated to a worthy cause every month, starting with The Black Coalition of Quebec. To my fellow artists and people within the music industry who have made careers off of black music but who aren’t black, I encourage you to give back in your own way.

Today and always, I run for my Black sisters and brothers.

lyrics

I’m coming through
I’m bringing you the best of all my blues
They’re for you to take so go ‘head paint your skies too
I’m coming for the greatness that I’m due

Yeah I’m running for my blessings
And I’m running for my place in this
I’m running for my sisters and my brothers
Don’t mistake this for a single-handed victory
That’s not what it’s about for me
No no

You see I’m running for you ouuu
I’m running for the ceilings we broke through
I’m running for the dreams we’re making true
I’m running cuz it’s all I’m supposed to do

It’s no surprise
They try to block your light with all their lies
Little do they know I’m a master in disguise
So don’t you get fooled by my brown eyes

Yeah I’m running for my blessings
And I’m running for my place in this
I’m running for my sisters and my brothers
Don’t mistake this for a single-handed victory
That’s not what it’s about for me
No no

You see I’m running for you ouuu
I’m running for the ceilings we broke through
I’m running for the dreams we’re making true
I’m running cuz it’s all I’m supposed to do

Show me some love
I’ll give you light
Show me some love
I’ll give you light

You see I’m running for you ouuu
I’m running for the ceilings we broke through
I’m running for the dreams we’re making true
I’m running cuz it’s all I’m supposed to do

You see I’m running (for you)
You see I’m running (for you)
You see I’m running (for you)
You see I’m running (for you)
