Kanye West has released the visual for his new song with Travis Scott, “Wash Us In The Blood.”
Released on Tuesday morning, “Wash Us In The Blood” is the first track from West’s upcoming tenth solo studio album God’s Country. The music video, directed by artist Arthur Jafa, opens with footage from a Black Lives Matter protest and later features a clip of Breonna Taylor dancing. Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was fatally shot by police at her home during the middle of the night on March 13.
“Take some, rain, nonstop, rain don’t want war/Rain come, rain come/Come shine, come rain, come up,” West sings on the new track. “Southside, let it bang/Outside, let it rain/Rain down on a pain/Rain down on the slain.”
Amid the ongoing call for justice around the world, reports have confirmed Kanye donated $2 million in relation to the deaths of Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and has been donating to several black-owned businesses in his hometown of Chicago.
