floyd's horrific passing sparked outrage and controversy for months in 2020 at the start of the pandemic, and the people have refused to forget his cries, and pleads. yesterday, a musician named ukno held a single release party for his track "wearefloyd" which features artist nino khayyam. the event held the presence of singer song-writer lion babe, bone, thugz n harmony and some other notable acts. according to the hiltonian, "an anthem created for Terrence Floyd’s 501c3 organization, We Are Floyd, is anticipated to be an anthem for the world. Encouraging justice to prevail for the families of all the lost ones and the healing to begin. The “WE ARE FLOYD” anthem ignites the flame that burns within the message to stop these unnecessary deaths and protect our BLACK FUTURE while not forgetting our BLACK HISTORY.
the anthem dropped on ALL PLATFORMS on FEBRUARY 28TH; it is the last day of BLACK HISTORY MONTH and the first day to take what we have learned and apply it to our BLACK FUTURE.
For every spin, for every download, for every listening ear of this anthem; consider it YOUR personal step closer to strengthening the message. Part of the proceeds goes towards the charity of the We Are Floyd Organization.
