Perfect Way To Die
Song by Alicia Keys Produced by Album: ALICIA Released: 19 June 2020
See who’s returned to the radar! Alicia Keys has given us “Perfect Way to Die,” a moving song inspired by recent stories of lives lost due to racism and injustice.
In March, fans were all set to receive Alicia Key’s anticipated project ALICIA. The singer shared the cover art to the project and teased us with bits about what we could expect from the record, but as the COVID-19 pandemic rolled forward, Alicia Keys delayed ALICIA’s release.
As the album sits on the shelf indefinitely, the songstress decided that Juneteeth (June 19) would be the perfect time to share “Perfect Way to Die,” a ballad produced by Sebastian Kole.
Sharing the inspiration behind the song, Alicia Keys shared on her Instagram page:
I have felt called by music like I never have before.
I have been following its lead.
It has led me to the song “A Perfect Way to Die.“
The song title is so powerful and heartbreaking because WE are heartbroken by so many who have died unjustly.
Of course, there is NO perfect way to die. That phrase doesn’t even make sense.
Just like it doesn’t make sense that there are so many innocent lives that should not have been taken from us due to the destructive culture of police violence.
