Beyonce on justice for George Floyd: “There is a long road ahead”

Beyonce has urged Black Lives Matter campaigners to stay “focused” as demonstrations against the death of George Floyd continue across the globe.

Posting on Instagram, the singer shared a powerful photo of protestors filling the streets of Minnesota, where Floyd died last week.

“The world came together for George Floyd. We know there is a long road ahead,” she wrote.

“Let’s remain aligned and focused in our call for real justice.”

Her call came hours after the charges against Derek Chauvin, who knelt on Floyd’s neck, were upgraded to second-degree murder. Yesterday, three other officers were also charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

Last week, Beyonce also spoke out about Floyd’s tragic death in an emotional video posted to Instagram. 

She said: “We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted.

“We cannot normalise this pain. I’m not only speaking to people of colour. If you’re white, black, brown, or anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.

“No more senseless killings of human beings. No more seeing people of colour as less than human. We can no longer look away. George is all of our family in humanity. He’s family because he’s a fellow American.”

Protesters carry a Black Lives Matter sign during a march denouncing police brutality and systemic racism in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

She added: “There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences. Yes, someone has been charged but justice is far from being achieved. Please sign the petition and continue to pray for peace, compassion, and healing for our country. Thank you so much.”

Her husband, Jay-Z, has also taken out full page newspaper adverts in tribute to Floyd.

Yesterday, thousands of people in the UK showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement by attending a massive protest in London’s Hyde Park.

The event also saw John Boyega receiving widespread praise for addressing the huge crowd.

Listen to Jay-Z’s new protest playlist, ‘Songs For Survival 2’

Published

Jay-Z has shared a new playlist of protest songs – you can listen to the playlist on Tidal now.

Featuring records by himself, Jay Electronica, 2Pac, Nina Simone, James Brown and Marvin Gaye, the list features seventeen songs and follows the first instalment of the playlist, which was released back in 2016.

The list comes a week after Jay-Z spoke out about the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota on May 25. Floyd, 46, died in Minneapolis following an altercation with police officers. Floyd, who was African American, was killed when a white police officer appeared to kneel on his neck as he lay on the ground during an arrest.

Officer Derek Chauvin has since been sacked and charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. Three of his colleagues, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J Alexander Keung are now all facing charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Since Floyd’s death, protests have erupted in the US and around the world.

After calling Minnesota Governor Tim Walz on May 30 to further amplify calls for justice for Floyd, Jay-Z issued a statement on Roc Nation in the early hours of June 1 to further elaborate on his “very earnest conversation” with Walz and thank him for calling in Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to lead Floyd’s case.

“Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me — a dad and a black man in pain,” the rapper wrote. “Yes, I am human, a father and a black man in pain and I am not the only one.

“Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.” Saying that this was “just a first step”, Jay-Z added: “I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressors may have.

“I prevail on every politician, prosecutor, and officer in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters, and mothers in pain. And look at yourselves.”

Jay-Z and his entertainment company Roc Nation also took out full-page adverts in newspapers across the US earlier this week (June 2) dedicated to the memory of Floyd.

The advertisements contained a powerful quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. which the civil rights leader made during an address in Selma, Alabama in March 1965.

The Streets share new track ‘I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him’

The Streets at Glastonbury 2019

The Streets have teamed up with Donae’o and Greentea Peng on new single ‘I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him’.

The track is the latest effort to arrive from Mike Skinner’s incoming mixtape, and follows his recent collaboration with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker.

The track, which is rooted in neo-soul, is described by Skinner as a “match made in heaven.”

“This is a summer club song. Knowing that Donae’o is the king of UK Funky music – match made in heaven,” he said.

Greentea Peng was the perfect foil for this, her melodies are unique and she’s wicked. I’ve spent the last three weeks working on the video for this one. It better be good”.

Last month, The Streets shared a new documentary on the making of their upcoming mixtape.

The 20-minute film features footage of the creation of new collaboration-based tape ‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive’, which comes out in July.

Speaking to NME about the upcoming mixtape and the new film, Skinner said: “It’s almost like a follow-on from [2004 album] ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ – that was my life without The Streets.

“That’s what this is; it’s about my life as a DJ but with The Streets removed. I haven’t shot anything yet, but we’ve decided to use real nightclubs. So we’re waiting for real nightclubs to happen again; if it’s not until 2021 then that’s when we’ll do it.

“The film’s just a caper, really; it’s a bit of fairytale, but a fairytale told in the real world.”
