Teyana Taylor shares a powerful visual for “Still” from her album titled, The Album.
The producer paid homage to the Black Lives Matter movement to shine a light on the lives lost or affected over the years from police brutality. Starting with a famous Malcolm X speech, the video then lists the names of victims of racism from as recent as George Floyd, Sean Reed, and Ahmaud Arbery to known names from the past like Emmett Till and Rodney King.

The Auntie’s Production also featured archived footage from previous and recent protests, clips of police brutality incidents, and 911 calls.
She shared her feelings in a recent Instagram post saying, “We are STILL emotional. We STILL keep fighting for love, justice. Yet we STILL keep losing our beautiful black lives. Where’s our healing?”
