2020 Riots: How Many Times
Song by Trey Songz Released: 5 June 2020
Trey Songz asks how many more black lives will be sacrificed before a change is made in his new record “2020 Riots: How Many Times.”
We are living in very important times right now. It’s a revolution out there as protestors unite to spark change following the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahamuad Arbery, and countless others. Riots and protests are aplenty these days with each state contributing to the battle.
Several musicians, including Meek Mill, Papoose, Lil B, and more have released songs about what’s happening. We can now include Trey Songz on that list.
Take a look around, can you see it now?
Don’t be colorblind, ’cause when they’re killin’ mine
They’ll try to justify it
Oh each and every time
Playin’ in a park, takin’ your jog
Sittin’ on the couch, in your own house
Never seem to matter what we do
You think we don’t matter, but we do
You got a problem, ’cause the city on fire
But you quiet when n!ggas die
