Jay-Z Releases a New Track in Wake of Violent Police Shootings

jay-z

Jay-Z has not come out with an independent single in quite some time now, but the recent police shootings in the US have compelled him to release a track entitled “Spiritual.” The track was recorded over a year ago, but it seems incredibly relevant in today’s context. The track itself is more of a spoken-word soliloquy, where Jay-Z touches on many different social issues that are relevant in America. The artwork on the track is a solid black square, a clear sign of mourning of the most recent victims, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Listen to the song in its entirety below.
